Join us for the Sixth Annual Right Here Showcase, the community’s only annual juried program supporting Minnesota-based, mid-career performing artists who create original performance work.
Founding Artistic Producer Paul Herwig, 2008 McKnight Theater Fellow and 2005 City Pages Artist of the Year, steers the Showcase. Four artists are chosen through an annual public call and a panel review, to be awarded financial commissions plus technical and promotional support to present a new work of contemporary performance especially for the Showcase.
This year’s Right Here Showcase will occur February 24-27, at the Tek Box Theater on the second floor of the Cowles Center, with two artists performing each night.
Featuring these four powerhouse performance makers:
Benjamin Domask-Ruh– physical theater artist
Jess Forest – dancer, choreographer, and visual artist
Sam Johnson – performance maker
Queen DREA – musician and composer
Thursday, February 24: Benjamin Domask-Ruh and Jess Forest at 8:00pm
