Launched in 2008, The Performance Gallery (Inside the Box) was one of the SummerWorks Theatre Festival's many new initiatives. In its inaugural year, the gallery, which took place on the 2nd floor of the Gladstone Hotel, featured an eclectic group of artists offering everything from short plays to dance to performance art to improvised concerts. This year it returns to the Gladstone (Aug 6- 9 & Aug 13-16th) and is seeking site-specific but not necessarily site-themed pieces (7-10 minutes) in all performance mediums.

- What is the importance of the audience to this piece?
- Does the risk and imagination stretch beyond the physical confinements?
