Professional performers and musicians from across the country will come together for 7 days to create 7 devised works for two stagings of innovative, inspiring and thought provoking performances. Inspired by the collaborative and experimental work done by theater companies such as the Rude Mechs, the Neo-Futurists, and the Saratoga International Theater Institute, A.R.T. has been conceived as a multi-year initiative to foster the creation and development of new works, while serving as a performance art companion to the annual Art in the Park fine art festival. The theme for year two will be announced soon! The theme for year one was “ReCreation 101.”
Be surprised and delighted by 7 new devised works of Audacious Raw Theater, each 7-15 minutes in length, while gaining insight into the creation process and embracing the spontaneous. Come for both stagings — artists will be revising and recreating throughout their time in Lanesboro. Each performance will be unique!
“We shall not cease from exploration, and at the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” — T. S. Eliot
