Known as a venue for visual art and cinema since its founding in 1979, CCA also has a rich history in the performing arts. The likes of Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson, and John Cage have graced the spaces of CCA. As the next chapter in this vivid history, CCA teams up with Theater Grottesco to showcase cutting-edge performance in a festival-like atmosphere, March 15 – May 5, 2013.

CCA's Munoz Waxman Main Gallery will be turned into a 150-seat temporary black-box theater for three months this Spring. Artists from around the country and Canada are invited to Santa Fe for as many as four performances, master classes, and public lectures.

CCA and Theater Grottesco intend for Eventa to create an off-season festival for art-lovers to experience genre-bending performance by artists from around the globe, creating cross-pollination between local artists and audiences and those from afar. 2013 is the pilot of what promises to be an annual collaboration with aims to become one of Santa Fe's destination events.
