Performance Lab

Slant of Light’s Performance Lab gives students of all ages the opportunity to bring their dreams to the stage and watch them come to life. Open to students of all ages interested in acting, writing, directing, stage managing, set designing, costume designing, producing or a combination of any of the above, our aim is to work through the various aspects of theater with the students and assist in the production of our students’ individual visions.

 Each class is specifically targeted to our students’ needs and aspirations. The first few classes are designed to encourage ideas and spontaneity of expression. Projects are then generated and the remainder of the session is geared towards mounting the students’ projects. Each student will have the opportunity to participate in every aspect of their project as it comes to life, or have the opportunity to choose a specific task they are interested in and focus on that.

This is an ideal class for experienced theater students as well as shy students wishing to grow and learn in a safe space. Our students work in groups on their projects as well as one another’s. This fosters a sense of individuality and teamwork simultaneously. Individual artists are brought in as needed to assist the students with various theatrical specialties.

Every six weeks a presentation will showcase the students’ progress with their visions. This is modeled after an open house, where our writers workshop their pieces, our actors perform, our artists display their work and our producers/directors guide the event. This gives our students the chance to show off what they have been working on as well as get feedback on their work. It enables them to learn the importance of process in theater, and not solely the importance of product.

Conceived under the umbrella of Slant of Light Theater Company, Performance Lab’s goal is to first, foster the imaginations of children, and second, help them bring those images to life.
