Incubate artists, change the world
Combustible is a lab for intersecting art practices from dance and technology. Artists are given real, raw Space and Time, to collaborate on the creation of innovative live performance projects using state-of-the-art lighting, sound tools, and emerging technologies. Throughout a residency period artists share their research through designed public experiences and events. Combustible carves a place to be deeply inquisitive and experiment on the edge of what is known.
This program is made possible by support from the Ken Hempel Fund for the Arts and by a Building Demand for the Arts Implementation grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, and is part of CounterPulse’s Artist Residency Commissioning program funded by the Kenneth Rainin Foundation, the Zellerbach Family Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, Emmet R.
