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.

 


The Combustible Residency was launched with seed funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, as part of ARC which is made possible by support the Ken Hempel Fund for the Arts, Kenneth Rainin Foundation, the Zellerbach Family Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, Emmet R. Quady Foundation, and CounterPulse members.
