Meet the Summer Lab 2017 artists!
Dearest Ground Floor fans,
We are excited to announce that this year’s Summer Residency Lab runs June 20 to July 16! This year’s Summer Lab features some of the most adventurous and thoughtful theatre-makers working today, with folks creating musicals, movement pieces, plays-with-music, and even a site-specific play meant to be performed in a house. We can’t wait to gather at our Harrison Street campus to exchange ideas, break bread, and make new work!
The Ground Floor Summer Residency Lab is Berkeley Rep’s cornerstone program for the creation and development of new work. We think of it as a research and development lab where the creative process is prioritized above all else. This is because often, artists are under pressure to quickly create a polished product. Rehearsal schedules can be punishing, and even developmental opportunities frequently come with restrictive formats that don’t work for every play.
The Summer Lab is built foremost with flexibility – our artists make their own schedules and are under no obligation to showcase their work. Our staff is on hand to respond to eclectic creative needs as they arise. (We’ve heard: “Can we stand in the middle of the street in a life-size camera costume?" "Do you know any good trumpet players?" "Is there a pool with a viewing window around?”) We pride ourselves on bending and swaying with ideas as they float around, often landing somewhere totally unexpected but really exciting.
Artists may choose to show their work; if they do, we will let you know about presentations in three ways:
1. An email! Weekly emails go out from this account announcing the week’s presentations.
2. Our Facebook page! We update this in real time, so check there for late-breaking presentation announcements. If an artist decides on Friday that they want a Saturday presentation you'll hear about it on Facebook.
3. Our website! We post presentation times on our home page.
All presentations are “first come, first served,” so be sure to show up a little early to claim a seat. They generally fall on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
We can't wait to see you this summer.
