About Interview Me
Interview Me
 integrates public installation, multi-media performance, and dance theatre to explore the ways in which interviews function in our society.  Curry+Dillon exploit the drama and architecture of “the interview” in a highly interactive evening where the audience plays a significant role in the experience.  Drawing from historical references and contemporary social media, Interview Me forces an up-close investigation of America’s love affair, and contemporary culture’s fascination, with the interview.

Interview Me is supported in part by 4Culture, Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, Northwest Film Forum and other generous donors.

Ticket Information
Tickets available at Brown Paper Tickets, at Northwest Film Forum and at the door.
