"Collaborative evenings like this are inspired by the groundbreaking interdisciplinary work that took place at Black Mountain College during its heyday. When artists open themselves and their processes up to the possibilities of failure (and success) through collaboration, it brings an edge to a performance. Balancing on that edge, with the known on one side and the unknown on the other can be as thrilling for the audience as it is for the performers. Legendary collaborations between Merce Cunningham, John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, M.C. Richards, Katherine Litz and many others at BMC laid the groundwork for collaborative experiments across all disciplines."
