Workbench is a choreographic works-in-progress series in Northampton, Massachusetts. Each month the work of 3-5 emerging to professional choreographers will be showcased. The performances will be followed by a Q&A lead by local artists, and scholars. For our first showing on January 18th Workbench is featuring Paul Matteson with collaborator Sarah Hook, The Telephone Dance Project, Ailey Picasso and Claire Maurey. Performances will be followed by an open discussion led by Kathy Couch, installation artist and resident lighting designer at Amherst College.
