Terms of Use

You are not required to send us any personal information to use this website. What you send to us via email or our contact form is entirely your own choice.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Attending a performance

Update: This section is no longer valid, but remains here to provide past information. The Attend link below no longer works. Instead, you can view the Experience page to watch a previously recorded copy of the performance.

To attend one of our performances, you fill out a form on our Attend (link no longer works) page. This form takes you to a signup page on the Zoom website. The data you enter into this form is used to send you confirmation information about how to attend our virtual performance via the Zoom video conferencing platform. The information you share is strictly voluntary and is used for no other purpose.


When you fill out the registration form or attend a performance, Zoom may or may not record your name, email address, IP address, or other information. For more on what Zoom collects, you can read the privacy and terms policies on their website.
