Event description

Description

n the spirit of P.S. 64/Charas El Bohio, the Tompkins Square Branch presents

WRITING/PERFORMANCE LAB

The intention is to provide artists in the community the opportunity to develop works-in-progress of writing pieces, theater texts, performance pieces and related projects. In addition to writers and performers, musicians, singers, dancers, etc., are welcome to participate.

In the 1980’s and 1990’s, the former P.S. 64 School Building on East 9th Street served a vital role in the local art/cultural scene of the East Village. Locally referred to as Charas El Bohio, the building was transformed into a vibrant community center, thus providing space and resources to the surrounding neighborhood’s emerging/grassroots art scene. It was a concentration of activity that had a considerably positive impact both within and beyond the East Village.

Participants will have the opportunity to offer and receive constructive feedback on work presented in the “Writing/Performance Lab” - with emphasis on how effectively a piece might engage with an audience.

Anyone with a story to offer, an interesting/dramatic character to present, or an interest in connecting their creative work with an audience may find this process helpful.

Presenters will have somewhere between 5-10 minutes for their material - depending on the number of participants for a particular date.

Interaction and mutual support are important for the Lab !
