Formal Inquiry is what happened when one composer, three poets, and three visual artists worked within and against centuries old structures. Visual art that translated music to color. Sonnets from the last seven hundred years collaged in sonata form. The world premier of new chamber music. For Formal Inquiry artists collaborated to create sonatas in three different mediums: a chamber work for piano, violin and cello; sonnet sequences; and three series of visual pieces.

Barnstorm is a lively gathering place – designed specially for contemporary artists and provocateurs – destined to open its doors in downtown Seattle in May 2011.

Channeling the original European cabarets of the late nineteenth century, Barnstorm will transform an empty warehouse space into a cozy home for diverse performance and installation works that challenge social and cultural conventions. Poetry, music, hip-hop, theatre and dance are just a few of the possibilities we have in mind…


It's funny because it's true

First Thursday Art Schlock. It's a blatant rip-off of an even more brilliant site. But let it be celebrated for its locality and accuracy with respect to certain arts organizations who take themselves too seriously. Which would not be ours. No. Never. Also: thank heavens for the recent resurgence of animated gifs.


This gorgeous, recently refurbished space shapes up to be a perfect space for, again, small scale dance, theatre and music performances. Bonus: located on Capitol Hill, across the street from the future 12th Avenue Arts space.
