Refreshments generously provided by Richard's Rainwater and Batch Craft Beer and Kolaches. Performance by Density 512 is supported in part by the Butler School of Music.


AUDIENCING explores the relationship between audiences and the objects of the audience (i.e. what the audience is viewing or listening to, be it a performer or art object). With two large hexagonal bandstands, barricades, and chairs, Gale creates a site-specific structure that defines the form and shape of the audience. Music selections curated by Nicholas Perry Clark feature works by Annie Gosfield, Michael Gordon, and graphic scores by Nikita Gale.
