Led by Artistic Director Philip Himberg and Producing Director Christopher Hibma, the Sundance Institute Theatre Program emphasizes intensive and limited-time interactions with high-level artistic mentors within the context of retreat settings removed from commercial pressures and other demands of contemporary life.
The result is Lab experiences that are transformative on both personal-artistic and project-specific levels. The Sundance Process The Sundance Process The Sundance Institute Theatre Program provides a unique catalytic process of artistic engagement in the world of theatre development programs.
Labs provide artists an isolated retreat setting of soul-nurturing natural beauty, removed from the demands of contemporary life.
They balance the self-directed freedom of an artistic retreat with a series of carefully calibrated interactions with select artistic mentors within a supportive community.
Rather, Sundance Labs are artist-focused and artist-led. While many programs provide time and space for development, Sundance Labs are distinguished by: Lab experiences are transformative on both personal and project-specific levels.
These catalytic experiences enrich and strengthen artists to move projects toward production, and memorably impact artists throughout their careers. At Sundance, dramaturgy is the how and the why of new play development, a process of inquiry and exploration into dramatic works practiced not only by Sundance dramaturgs, but by all of the artists in the room.
Once a project is accepted to a Lab, there is opportunity to discuss the kind of dramaturgical support that best suits it. This offers artists refreshing opportunities for experimentation and discovery.
Final showings of the works in progress are open rehearsals solely for the Lab community. Chosen experts in the field are brought to the Lab as Creative Advisors to attend final showings and offer fresh eyes.
By respecting the intimacy and trust established through the Lab process, generative artists leave Sundance Labs with a collection of sculpted feedback and new possibilities. Potential commercial producers, the external public, and paid audiences are purposefully not part of the final readings.
In a beauty-filled landscape, where generous hospitality is provided by a gracious staff, artists discover an empty space - an open field for dream time and creativity discovery, relieved of external pressures and internal expectations.
Lab Fellows guide their own experiences, first by introducing themselves to the community, describing their project and work plan goals, and often reading their work out loud.
The artist-driven process is encouraged throughout the Lab process, as is respectful deep listening and interaction from dramaturgs, mentors and fellow participants.
At the Lab itself, the Artistic Director and dramaturgs move between project rehearsals, entering into an ongoing dialogue with Fellows, encouraging artists to engage with the impulses that inspired their writing.
Open rehearsals are encouraged to allow the Lab community to quietly observe the working process of fellow artists.
Informal conversations may evolve outside of rehearsal, over a meal or a walk. Feedback is managed between the Fellow, core collaborators, the dramaturg and other mentors, with the guidance of the Artistic Director.
Fellows and their collaborators balance continuing development with the need to temporarily solidify choices for an informal presentation to the community. Fellows are encouraged to formulate questions to guide conversations that are moderated by the Artistic Director the day after a presentation, when possible.
A limited amount of Post-Lab support funds are made available when requested and as approved by Theatre Program staff. While staff may involve themselves in advocacy or follow-through for specific projects, Sundance does not function as a producer of plays.
Rather, Labs are artist-focused and artist-led to offer generative artists refreshing opportunities for experimentation and discovery. Artists spend focused time in a range of Lab configurations, all placed in isolated settings of natural beauty, within a nurturing community of fellow participants and mentors.
