As of March 15th, The Lab is a new space for the creation and development of theatre performance and will function as a Working Group at the UC Independent Media Center!
The Lab hopes to be an incubator for local artists to be exposed to various modes of creation and also to share their knowledge and skills. In The Lab we will engage in ensemble building, imagery, writing and movement exercises that will render rough original work that can be explored and devised further together or on your own. We will also explore modes of dramatizing existing non-dramatic text.
Phase I of The Lab will work as follows:
- One Saturday per month community members will gather to create both art and an artistic community
- Should any community member wish to develop an idea born in The Lab, there will be some rehearsal space available at the IMC to workshop the piece
- There will be the option of a minimal Annual Membership fee or a Per Session fee
I will serve as the Working Group Leader and will be meeting with the Operations Director and the head of the Programming Committee within the next few weeks to work out details and dates. Please check back periodically for updates!
