Nuba Proudly Supports Brief Encounters

 Nuba proudly supports Brief Encounters 19 that is happening May 9-11 at Performance Works. Brief Encounters is a multidisciplinary performance experiment designed to fuse disciplines and push artistic boundaries. For each installment the ten inspiring creators are matched in five unusual pairings. Two weeks prior to the show dates the artists meet with their partner and begin working. From this point on, the only criteria is that the piece be a new collaborative effort. These performances are complemented with a live visual artist creating a new piece each night as well as the storytelling and hosting stylings of Riel Hahn.   This instalment with feature Carolyn Chan (Butoh Dancer), France Perras (Actress), Thomas Anfield (Painter), Eileen Kage (Taiko Drummer), Tariq Hussain (Songwriter), David Bloom (Playwright), Nita Bowerman (Performance Artist), Wes Borg (Comedian), Danielle Lemon (Entertainment Lawyer), and Sammy Chien / Chimerik (Media Artist).
