This fall, EMPAC presents a calendar of events including an operatic spectacle featuring Capital Region actors and cheerleaders; an exhibition about anxiety; a building-wide sonic landscape; a poignant stop-action film with a rock-star band; a theatrical performance bridging concert, cabinet of curiosities, and video installation; an intimate dialogue in movement reflecting life; and many more performances, exhibitions, workshops, talks, screenings, and concerts.

Add to all this the first biennial festival Filament on October 1-3 and the opening of Evelyn's Café (under the management of The Epicurean), and it is shaping up to be a busy and action-packed fall.

Hold on tight!

October 1–3, 2010

A festival of new work in performance, visual arts, sound, and media.

With over 15 premieres spanning theatre, 24-channel sound, contemporary dance, video, and a barn-raising; exchanges with artists, curators, and creative engineers; and a dynamic archive of the artistic process, this three day festival highlights EMPAC's focus on creation via commissions and residencies.

Filament opens the door to discover EMPAC as incubator for the art and performance of our time.
