    August 8-20 || LIMITS: Corrie Beffort + Jason Anderson  || Alembic Parent Residency

    PWNW welcomes Corrie Befort and Jason E. Anderson of LIMITS for our inaugural Alembic Parent Residency. The duo draw upon their extensive involvement with improvisation, film, video art, installation and experimental performance to investigate psychological experiences of time, memory and perception. Corrie and Jason are using this residency opportunity to invite other artists to play/improvise with them within the context of LIMITS, proposing “container” scores for themselves toward revealing new ideas and perspectives on their preoccupations with character, narrative and information density.
