Event description

Description

In Process @ The Watermill Center invites the community to engage with our resident artists on Saturday afternoons through open rehearsals, workshops, studio visits, lectures or artist talks.

Watermill’s mission is to provide artists and thinkers the opportunity to focus on the development of their work and practice. Artists-in-Residence have gone on to perform at venues and festivals including the New Museum, Roulette, PS122, American Realness, Clocktower Gallery, Performa, Vienna’s Donaufestival, Kampnagel in Hamburg, CPR – Center for Performance Research, and the Baryshnikov Arts Center.

Inaugurated in 2017, the Hayground Residency welcomes students from the Hayground School for a month-long residency at The Watermill Center. Students ages 12-14 spend time developing original works of theatre, gathering material, choreographing scenes and rehearsing performances. The final work is staged for public performances onsite at The Watermill Center and at Hayground School.

What makes a community? How does our culture and identity contribute to a community? How can we create new communities that bridge identities and cultures? This fall, students from the Hayground School’s Apprenticeship Group have considered these questions and others while reading the novel Seedfolks by Paul Fleishman. Using various forms of puppetry, the students have collaborated to adapt the novel for the stage.
