Watermill Artists-in-Residence, P.L.U.T.O, invite the community to explore their work through In Process @ The Watermill Center. In Process @ The Watermill Center invites the community to engage with our resident artists on Saturday afternoons through open rehearsals, workshops, studios visits, lectures or artists talks.
During their Watermill residency, Bruno Guida and P.L.U.T.O. – an ensemble of stage directors, actors and writers formed in 2015 at Lincoln Center Director’s Lab – will produce a live performance piece titled Black Box that creates and communicates a dialogue between their various backgrounds and cultures. In advance of their residency, each member has been assigned to bring one black box with the precise measures: 30cm x 30cm x 30cm. The contents of the box will contain elements related to their personal history and their country’s identity including; a piece of news from a paper or magazine, a book, a song in MP3 format and two surprise elements, among other objects.
P.L.U.T.O. is made up of theater directors from all over the world who come together to create collectively and to expand both their geographical and creative frontiers. They constantly challenge themselves with questions such as; How do we produce theater today? What make us complementary? Is it possible to create an art piece that dialogs with all our different cultural backgrounds at the same time?
