Sharing the Question: An Inquiry Colloquium

Sponsored by The Syndicate

In the Department of Theatre at The Ohio State University At the Drake Performance and Event Center

Saturday, February 25th, 2017        10:00 am-4:00 pm

“A life of making isn’t a series of shows, or projects, or productions, or things: it is an everyday practice. It is a practice of questions more than answers, of waiting to find what you need more often than knowing what you need to do. Waiting, like listening and meandering, is best when it is an active and not a passive state.”                                        Ann Hamilton

We invite you to join us in waiting, listening, and meandering with the questions at the core of your work. All presentations and performances are invited with the intention of nudging the work forward through public sharing and dialogue. This event is free and open to the public.

Coffee and light snacks provided.
