Our Theatre Lab provides a forum for experimentation by professionals, the development of new performance material, and the rediscovery of classics. The Lab enables artists to explore new work - and new ways of working - in order to forge a deeper connection between actor and audience, self and community, life and art.
Throughout its history, the Lab has taken many forms. Projects of the Lab have included investigations and productions of classic works that encouraged a deeper appreciation for the works and garnered awards and accolades. The Lab has also hosted investigations and development of new works encouraging new voices and perspectives and providing our community with a safe place to push the art form forward. The Lab has expanded the horizons of the Seattle arts community by hosting collaborations between Seattle artists and internationally recognized theatre artists. It continues to meet the needs identified by our community of professional theatre artists.
