Coming Soon:

Yugen in Action 2017

On July 21st and 22nd, we will be bringing back the Yugen in Action presentations that we began in our 37th season.  Yugen in Action gives local artists a space to present their works to audiences and to inspire one another.  Last year over 20 artists presented work on the themes of alienation and othering.   This year, keeping in line with the Fermentation Lab, the themes are the chemical and the transformative.  More information is available on the Yugen in Action page.
