The DISTILLERY opens its doors to audiences via our open studio sessions and final work-in-process performance: a 15-20 minute showing by each participating fellow that showcases the artists’ process as it appears at the end of the program. This final public showing (facilitated by program staff and local artists, and presented in the Contemporary Art Center, New Orleans’ Freeport-McMoRan Theater) is a peek inside the fellows’ rehearsal processes, that invites audience feedback (What works? What sparks? What are we more curious about?), while engaging the New Orleans performance community and its audiences.

All performances are free and open to the public. The 2015 showing will be at the end of August.

Monday, June 23

Friday, September 19

Doors open at 6pm. Performance and discussion begin at 7pm.
