Catapult 2023

About this event

Please join us for the Catapult Festival, featuring two original full-length devised works created by the UArts/Pig Iron MFA Class of Fall 2023. These soon-to-be graduates are immersed in a 15-week creative process, collaboratively building performance works that will be unveiled to the public on December 9 and 10 at the Arts Bank.


Witness these ferocious artists as they launch beyond graduate school and into the professional sphere, equipped to dare to push artistic boundaries while utilizing their bodies and imaginations to speak to a contemporary audience. Over two and a half years, they have whipped up many concoctions, each with a different flavor. Catapult is their moment to serve a full feast. Come hungry for the next generation of artists to satiate your artistic appetite.


Created by Flora Aubin, Patrick Burke, Faysal Dakni, Jonah Godfrey, Alyse James, Mitchell Nease, and Sarah Owens
