2011 - 2017

Co-directed by artists Brian Getnick and Tanya Rubbak, Native Strategies (NS) is a network of performance makers, producers and critical thinkers who seek to invigorate and make globally visible Los Angeles’s performance art community. We are engaged in a 6 year study (2011 – 2017) of LA performance modalities through the creation of 10 differently themed performance series and 10 uniquely designed journals, resulting in a book.

Our writers and visual artists seek to distill what ideas are urgent to the participating artists and to experiment with how the production of a document is in itself a performance.

In response to concerns raised by our community, Native Strategies will change it's name in Fall 2016.
