Red Eye Theater will present 10 original performance pieces as part of the New Works 4 Weeks Festival, taking place at the TEK BOX in May and June 2019. Widely recognized as one of the most dynamic platforms for contemporary performance in Minnesota, the festival completes Red Eye’s 35th anniversary season. Each year since the inception of Works-in-Progress in 1983, a cohort of artists supports each other’s work through critical feedback, fostering collaboration, experimentation, and critical discourse. This incubator of new work has become a cornerstone of the Twin Cities performance landscape, culminating in a showcase of the freshest experiments from Minnesota’s most risk-taking performing artists.
