Hinge/Works

modern opera

July 28, 2016 We are deeply saddened by the passing of composer and Hinge/Works co-founder Denis Nye. The brilliance of his ear and the bright, ironic beam of his wit will be missed by many. We and so many artists are grateful to have been able to work and be in the world with him.

May 12-22, 2016 Persephone opens a two-week run at SPACE Gallery.
