The Dilating Nexus (shakingray.com/nexus/) is a monthly series of non-conventional events and ritualized social experiments housed in a variety of “total environments” throughout Chattanooga. The five-month series aims to stimulate rarefied, esoteric and unknown actions within the region, while honoring and highlighting cutting-edge work that is already in existence. Each of the five events is presented as a provocation to galvanize marginalized performers and artists from all disciplines, pushing them into unforeseen situations and inspiring them to respond in genuinely spontaneous, creative and resourceful ways.
