Performance Lab

Would you like to make performance work based in dance, writing, theater, music, visual art, new and/or expanded fields?

Performance Lab is an opportunity for students of all class years to spend dedicated time making and thinking about performance from an interdisciplinary perspective. Development of your work is supported through discussion with other artists and regular meetings with a dance faculty mentor. This process-focused adventure culminates in public performances in the Roberts Dance Studio as well as in other possible sites at the Lewis Center on Thursday, April 23 & Friday, April 24, 2020 at 8:30 p.m. Students must be available to meet for gatherings, experiments, and showings most Wednesday evenings between 7:30 and 9:20 p.m. during the spring term and for technical rehearsals starting the weekend of April 18.
