Commissions

Phantom Limb

Dedicated to advancing research and artistic production at the intersection of technology, media and the performing arts, EMPAC is a major contributing force in many artistic and technological domains. A main focus is the development and production of new works in the performing and media arts. Projects, residencies and productions come from all domains of time-based arts, including but not limited to video, dance, music, theater, internet art, DVD productions, interactive installations, and multimedia art. Some pieces that are created or presented here may grow out of our media-rich environment and could travel to other venues, nationally and internationally, others works may be site-specific to EMPAC.

As a facility and an environment, EMPAC is a magnet to artists in a wide variety of time-based disciplines including performance, theatre, dance, music and film/video. Artists are given residencies and commissions which include a rare and powerful combination: time to experiment in performance and production spaces of the highest quality combined with a technologically advanced infrastructure. As part of our mission to support artistic production with resources and facilities which are project-specific, we provide access to equipment, expertise, rehearsal space, research, or other support as part of a commission, according to the needs of that project.
