Short for Spontaneous queer art, SQUART was conceived by Laura Arrington, out of the desire to foster community and create work without preciousness. THEOFFCENTER and The Lab present this October's SQUART entitled ITS ALIVE! or BE VERY AFRAID! celebrating the good old ghoulish holiday with a dare.
Lets see what can come from it.
SQUART’s format is simple, people show up at 6pm, break into teams and are given a list o...f criteria with two hours to make a piece. At 8pm whatever is made is performed! The work is then commented on by a panel of judges. It's usually incredibly creative, inspiring, fun, and always bizarre.
Four teams will create new works from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Their process of creation is open to the audience. At 8:00 p.m. Teams will present their completed works to the audience
