Through the Lab Series, I programmed, mentored, and presented more than 100 productions, the vast majority of which were brand new plays, devisings, solo performances, and art installations.
I founded the Lab Series in 2011 and produced it until 2019. The Lab Series was a student-driven, department-nurtured performance research laboratory in the Department of Theatre at Ohio State. Emphasis was on experiment over outcome, process over product.
Performances were always free, and each experiment had a two night run in a versatile black box space devoted to the Series. Each semester, I also mentored two undergraduate Production Managers and one undergraduate Technical Coordinator in their work facilitating the day to day operation and maintenance of the Series.
