WHAT IS A CREATIVE LAB?
The goal of a creative lab is to create a complete theatrical dance show in less than a week. Tools used include the “Sprint” prototyping process to collaboratively conceptualize, prioritize and structure the show. Solo creative development and collaborative teamwork through structured improvisation and choreography will be utilized.

We hope to raise consciousness and inspire individual and collective action to slow climate change. This show has been performed in Connecticut, USA on Nov 26th 2017 and is also scheduled to be performed in Bali, Indonesia on August 13th, 2018.
