Research Project (RP) is a quarterly works-in-progress series that offers a community forum for experimentation, emerging ideas, and artist-to-peer support. RP brings together movement-based artists in the midst of their creative development to show work, share process, give & receive response, and chew the fat. RP has been hosted at OuterSpace Studios in Wicker Park, Chicago since it was founded by Greer Dworman in 2013, initially supported by The Space Movement Project and now by the continued generosity of The Watering Can Dance. I have been coordinating RP since summer 2014, and as of fall 2017, Aurora Tabar will also be part of this process as we seek to usher RP into its next 5 years. If you are interested in showing your work at Research Project, please email researchprojectchicago@gmail.com.
