C A T C H !



For nearly 15 years, and 80 events, CATCH! helped to define the NY downtown performance scene, bringing together artists and audiences encompassing a sprawling constellation of performance worlds.   Together with Andrew Dinwiddie and joined by Caleb Hammons, CATCH! grew from the back room of a Williamsburg bar, to take the stage at some of the premiere downtown institutions in NYC and at venues and festivals across the US.  Along the way, the misson expanded from providing a space for artists just making a splash, to bringing early-career and established artists into a shared creative context, and fostering an audience ready to engage with performance art of all stripes, all the while enjoying the scene with a beer in hand.
