Successful Season Affirms Promising Future for IN>TIME Festival

As the IN>TIME Performance Festival moves towards a close on March 2, discussions about the festival’s future have already begun. In an interview with Timeout Chicago published on February 21, festival organizer and SAIC faculty member (Performance) Mark Jeffery says he’s happy to witness IN>TIME’s effect on the Chicago performance community. “It’s exciting to see that there is a dynamic now, in terms of all these venues wishing to work within things like the IN>TIME format,” he says. “I want it to be a biennial. Ideally, I’d love some commissioning money that comes out, so that we can really think about how the programming becomes much more centralized, much more about sharing ideas.” In an article published by New City on February 13 Jeffery adds, “What we’re discovering is that performance has arrived….The thing that I think is important is to figure out a way to keep moving.”
