Theater & Dance’s innovative creative research laboratory is a highly selective production slot designed especially for our majors to create and produce their own work with guided feedback from a team of faculty mentors. Students work in a team to collaborate in the practice and creation of new work, to apply problem solving and critical thinking skills to embodied investigations, and to engage in creative exploration in the formation of new performance work. This year Alexis Atkinson ’15 and Brendan Leonard ’16 share the evening. Both students chose to work with migratory themes. Leonard will explore Chuck Mee’s play Big Love and Atkinson will unpack Ragtime.
