In March of 2018 I began serving as Artist-in-Residence at The Urbana Dance Company in downtown Urbana, Illinois. I’m calling it performance studio: a storytelling playground.
As artists, it is imperative that we have spaces where we can continue to learn, create and present work. Performance Studio (P.S.) aims to be such a space.
the playgrounds are spaces to explore performance form and style, creative staging and design. There will be classes and workshops for youth, adults and intergenerational groups.
the laboratory is for local artists whose story ideas would benefit from non-traditional creation processes. It is a space to try, fail, discover, edit, succeed, rethink and repeat.
the performances will be work that bubbles from playgrounds, the laboratory, the ensemble as well as new and published theatre pieces.
the ensemble gathers monthly to create new work together.
