The Lab Series

The Lab Series is a student-driven, department-nurtured performance research laboratory. Productions can occur in a variety of campus spaces, including the New Works Lab. Emphasis is on innovative work that functions on a zero budget model. The pieces presented will include a mix of student written pieces, new renderings of classic or obscure works, and community building events. Performances begin at 7 pm and are free, first-come, first-served.
