Performance Lab: In the Round
Thu, Sep 20, 7pm

Since its founding On the Boards has hosted various performance series — such as Choreography, Etc., to 12 Min Max, and Open Studio — that allow local artists to share new works and works-in-progress. In the 18/19 Season we’re relaunching this program as the Performance Lab, a quarterly series that includes facilitated feedback for artists along with an opportunity for each artist to discuss their performance with the audience. There is an open call for performances and each Performance Lab will be curated by local artists and Charles Smith, Director of Program Management. The format for this first Performance Lab will be in the round on the Merrill Theater stage. Learn more about the Performance Lab

An exploration of senses, experimenting in physical research with each sense — experiencing the senses for what they are and how we think about them. This is an excerpt from research for a full evening work to premiere in Spring of 2019.
