The IPA’s inaugural project, EXPERIMENT #17 (DUMBO), was presented in May 2013 in sites all across the Brooklyn neighborhood of DUMBO as the group’s M.F.A. thesis project. Over the course of nine months, the IPA developed relationships with dozens of neighborhood businesses, artists, residents, and over 60 performers to create a series of one-on-one performance encounters, activating unusual and everyday spaces for the public.
