For artists, Eavesdropping provides a stage for risk-taking and the exploration of non-conventional sound, to present a relevant boundary-breaking artistic work. Shows often include multimedia elements, real time electronic processing, and performance art. The Tank’s intimate black box theater brings our audiences close enough to become part of the creative process. We are committed to presenting innovative repertoire that is relevant and intriguing. Eavesdropping is a cross-genres new music series presented to the city’s inquisitive listener - the one that seen it all and heard it all but craves for cultural excitement.
