I hope everyone has had an amazing fall. I know that I’ve had a crazy busy time getting to know the Juilliard infrastructure, and working with my uber-talented/enthusiastic students. art.party has had a bit of a breather, which is scary for a young company, but a necessary RESPITE if we are to move ahead. ¬†And you can’t move forward unless you are breathing.
2010 brought two successful original pieces, STARBOX and BAD ROMANCE, both of which involved collaborations with art.party newcomers. 2010 also brought us new company members, Mattie Brickman, Grace Laubacher and Lauren Jackson, wonderful collaborators all. 2010 brought forays into classical music and social media, and coverage in many publications.
HOWEVER, it’s almost 2011, and we’ve got many fun projects in store for the year ahead:
Collaborations with the inimitable Mattie Brickman, the endlessly creative Jeremy Bloom and the searingly smart Susan Stanton. New and old stories, new and old explorations of theatrical space and ritual.
Work with our favorite company members, and certainly new designers, actors and musicians. We’ll continue to breathe, move forward, and explore new territory in performance.
Oh, and if anyone knows an office space that we can have a show in, let me know!
