In the STUDIO, we commission and develop work from the ground up. We’re expanding the program to support the development of at least eight new pieces that we plan on producing at 46 Walker Street from 2018 – 2022.
This year, we’re commissioning five artists, including Alice Birch, Narcissister, and three others to create new work. We’ll also be working with Carmelita Tropicana and Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Kate Tarker, Becca Blackwell and others to develop new pieces in the STUDIO.
We’ll be kicking off this new phase of development with an open rehearsal of Jackie Sibblies Drury’s FAIRVIEW, following two weeks of rehearsals, this December.
Stay tuned for information about further public presentations of work in development.
Leadership support for the STUDIO is provided by the Vilcek Foundation.
Alice Birch is the recipient of a Berwin Lee New Play Commission. Other commissions are being supported by James Gleick and Cynthia Crossen and Jody Falco and Jeffrey Steinman.
