22sepAll Day25Inside / Out Festival


Event Details

A multidisciplinary festival dubbed a “radical experiment” by the Intermedia Arts’ curator, the Inside / Out Festival seeks to test, redefine, and innovate the use of space, performative technique and the role of the audience. To conduct this experiment, Twin Cities artists are invited to present film, performance, visual art, and musical work that pushes boundaries of space, genre, and artist-audience interaction. With a lineup featuring artists such as Eric F. Avery, J. Otis Powell, Davu Seru, Donald Washington, Ellen Hinchcliffe, and co-presenting organizations including RARE Productions and Tru Ruts, this four-day festival promises to engage audiences in new and exciting ways beyond the fourth (or even fifth) wall.
