When Performance Space 122 first opened its doors to dancers and performers in 1979, the central event of the week was Open Movement, and later Music/Dance. In 1985 the Open Movement and Music/Dance, sessions and the need for an informal venue where spontaneous dance and music could be explored before an audience, led to the birth of Hothouse , a one of a kind performance series dedicated to improvisation. Curated by DD Dorvillier, Hothouse features month-long showcases of improvisational works. Hothouse brings three to four performers, or groups, together each Sunday to share their latest experiments and culminates in a jam between all of them.
