Performance Works NorthWest


Performance Works NorthWest advances the performing arts in the Pacific Northwest through the development of contemporary performance, artists and audiences. As an artist-run incubator for live and media arts, PWNW simultaneously nurtures local artists and provides opportunities for Portland OR audiences and artists to engage with nationally renowned performers and their work. Performance Works NorthWest was founded by choreographer Linda Austin and lighting designer Jeff Forbes in 1999. We have made our home in a small ex-church in SE Portland, Oregon since June 2000. Current programs include Linda Austin Dance, the annual Richard Foreman Mini-Festival, Cabaret Boris & Natasha (a cabaret style arts salon), the Alembic Series of Guest Curated Events, and our space rental program. Special projects include a 2002 Residency and Commission for NYC-based Sally Silvers and the 2008 Tuning Project with guest artists Lisa Nelson and Steve Paxton.
