TBA Box Tomorrow!
PICA‘s TBA Central Box Office opens tomorrow, August 1 in the Weiden + Kennedy foyer. That’s the box office for the Time Based Art Festival produced by the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art that regularly sells out many of the performances it brings in from across the country and around the world. So in years past, if you didn’t jump on tickets for Yubiwah Hotel (Japan) and Lone Twin (UK) early, say, you were out of luck. What will be the sellouts this year? Well, Nature Theater of Oklahoma (pictured above), for one, is a Sure Thing, and Ace In The Hole. The Box Office is open Tuesday through Friday, 12-6 PM. Plus, PICA will be at the 5th Avenue Old Town/Chinatown Street Fair on First Thursday, August 2 from 5-10 PM on NW 5th Avenue between Burnside and Glisan.
You can access the whole TBA catalogue as a PDF here to start making your picks. Of course, your safest bet is a festival pass.
This is your A#1 Best Chance to get a bead on contemporary performance delivered to you on a silver, if somewhat off-kilter, platter here in Portland, Oregon.
