PWNW PUBLIC ACCESS: rent our space for your performance
Note: Due to concerns with the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the studio will remain closed for performances at least through May 2021. Please check back as you can. You can also email us at email@example.com
PWNW is happy to offer its space for performance rentals as they fit into our studio and personal schedules.
Preference given to projects that align with our mission to advance the performing arts of the Pacific Northwest, engaging artists and audiences fully in the process of experimentation, creation and dialog around the presentation of contemporary performance.
Performances & rehearsals in our space need sets that can be mostly cleared/broken down between each use so that others may use the space. No nailing or screwing into the floor. Sharp edges on objects need protection (felt, rubber) that dance floor is kept unharmed. NO TAP SHOES OR SPIKE HEELS!
