High Pressure Fire Service Talk

FringeArts Artistic Producers & 2020 HPFS Artists

October 4 at 3:00pm

2020 Fringe Festival

60 minutes



Join FringeArts Artistic Producers Zach Blackwood and Katy Dammers in a discussion with the 2020 High Pressure Fire Service cohort artists: Nell Bang-Jensen, Emily Bate, Kyle Dacuyan + Antigravity Performance Project, James Allister Sprang, and Alexandra Tatarsky.
FringeArts is thrilled to include artists originally slated to present new works in our High Pressure Fire Service Festival this spring within the Fringe Festival this year. These artists were all faced with the unexpected consequences of COVID-19 that hit in the midst of rehearsal processes and just weeks away from premieres. In its wake there has been a complicated loss and grappling with how, why, and in what way to continue making work. Each artist has approached the opportunity to present work this fall differently–some crafting completely new pieces, others adapting materials and processes from their original plans for the spring–and all of them have crafted experiences that are timely, relevant, and poignant in the continued space of the pandemic. We are inspired by the ways these artists have adapted and continue to remind us of the importance of art as a means to contend with, reflect upon, and move through the world together.
We hope you’ll engage with their work throughout the Fringe Festival and join us for a conversation with the cohort on Sunday, October 4 to talk about their unexpected transition, how they are grappling with the grief, and how they envision the future.
