The Empty Space

The Empty Space features creative scholarship developed by students and faculty in the Hugh Downs School, often in collaboration with other ASU departments and schools. Projects range from extended solo performances to group performances, including explorations in (auto)ethnography, literary-based texts, adapted scholarship, and trigger scripting. The Empty Space also hosts local and national artists and performance educators who offer lectures, workshops, and performances.
