Performance Works NW presents its 10th annual fundraiser inspired by the 
work of avant-garde theatre pioneer Richard Foreman.**

Formerly known as a "Mini-Festival,"  this avant-extravanza is "Mini-" 
no more: 10 days of Foremanesque tomfoolery around the city with a 
glittering constellation of dancers, poets, media and theater artists 
who dismantle, contaminate, rearrange, & respond to selections from 
Foreman's online royalty-free notebooks. It all culminates with a grand 
finale performance at PWNW on Saturday November 17, 2012.

*Warm-up:* The 9 days leading up to the grand finale recapitulate the 
Foreman texts used in years 1-9 of the Festival and feature 
a smorgasbord of geographically-dispersed events such as an oracle, a 
cocktail party, a haunted house, an afternoon of comedy, collage-making, 
  an intimate car performance + mobile disco etc. at various times of 
day. **

The Grand Finale performance, as in past festivals, is based on a 
newly-selected text kept secret until 10 days prior. On November 17, at 
a marathon performance of brief works, audiences will be amused, 
befuddled, surprised and thrilled by inventive stagings of dance, 
theater, performance, video, music created by the intrepid gang of 
artists who rose to the challenge of creating works in just 10 days.
