HybridSalon is an bi-yearly, interdisciplinary evening of new performance work made in collaboration. Genesis provides Chicago based artists with opportunities to connect and network across disciplines, to explore risk and experimentation in their own artistic practices, and to investigate working in new models of collaboration. #HybridSalonChi

Genesis is an artistic partnership between Amanda Dunne Acevedo and Lindsey Barlag Thornton. Our work is often site-specific, collaborative, and experiential. We value experimentation and risk-taking in our practice, with a performance model that intentionally considers our audience and space.
