BUZZ

BUZZ written in blue all caps font over a red background.

The BUZZ Development Series focuses on creating an artistic process that places the art and artist at the centre.  This can manifest itself in various ways including: workshops, dramaturgy, public presentations as well as ways which cannot yet be anticipated or defined. At TPM, rather than prescribing a specific methodology, we aspire to empower the artist through their development.  Works in the program are being considered for future development and potential production at TPM.

For BUZZ showings, TPM is sharing the artist’s process in front of an audience, as a tool in helping to shape their work. The event is designed by the artist in collaboration with TPM, to create the most useful and productive audience feedback at this point in the work’s development. You, the audience, are a critical part of our development process.
