2010 Theatre Lab on Governors Island

The Lab on Governors Island is our first non-residency program, allowing local writers to work in a retreat setting during the day and return to their homes each night. We expect to learn a great deal about how best to support these artists as we take a step away from the familiarity of our fantastic Utah home and collaborate with new partners. Just a short, daily ferry ride from the Battery Maritime Building at the southern tip of Manhattan, the Lab provides a creative environment for playwrights, directors, composers, and librettists to develop new work with the full support of dramaturgs and full casts. This Lab, a pilot program, will celebrate the diversity and rich resources of New York Harbor while providing a protective canopy of private time and space in which to create. The Theatre Program will offer community events for Lab participants including screenings, excursions, and special events held around the New York City metro area.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
