Fall 2019 Fieldwork Workshop 

7:00pm Wednesdays, September 18 to October 30 | Spoke the Hub (Brooklyn) 
Fieldwork offers artists the time and space to take risks, share works in progress with a test audience in a studio setting, and to exchange non-directorial, peer-to-peer feedback. Our unique workshop is great for dance makers, composers, playwrights, poets, spoken word performers, and more! Dance artist, writer, and educator Shalewa Mackall will facilitate feedback at each session this Fall. 

Curious about Fieldwork? Test-drive our unique methodology for a one-time session at Fieldwork Open Trial Day Wednesday, September 11.
