Jonathan Burrows & Matteo Fargion will have spent the week with 35 Philadelphia-based artists, curators, and writers in an intensive workshop on process. This last day of the session will open a window into their work and process, allowing for time to talk formally and informally about how we build performances.

The following case study chronicles Fatebook, a 2009 production by New Paradise Laboratories. Fatebook was innovative in form, creative process and content: a show developed and experienced partly online and partly live. The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage commissioned arts journalist Charlotte Stoudt to research and follow the show in the hope that theater professionals around the country might find the methodology behind Fatebook useful in their own work.
