The Works

The Basement
The Works is an ongoing series dedicated to developing theatre makers, dancers, choreographers, musicians, poets and visual artists working in cross-art form and interdisciplinary exploration. Presented as part of a commitment by Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival to support the development of artists, The Works is an opportunity for artists to seek the opinions of the audience they wish to attract, and an opportunity for people who care about performance to engage in collective dramaturgy and development.
Meet in the Bar for a drink beforehand.
