Sundance has been renovating its Utah home, which will welcome writers for three weeks next summer, from July 9-29, 2012. In recent years Sundance has held its theatre labs at the Banff Center in Canada, as well as MASS MoCA and on New York City's Governors Island.
The annual labs allow writers to shape their developing work in a supportive environment with the aid of a professional director and cast.
"Returning to the Sundance Resort follows exciting renovations to our familiar and beloved environment in Utah," Himberg said in a statement. "We have had two dynamic years off-site, creating labs in partnership with The Banff Centre, MASS MoCA and Governors Island in New York Harbor. We now look forward to bringing what we’ve learned ‘on the road’ back to our home at Sundance."
The deadline for submissions is Nov. 15. Submitted works cannot have been previously produced, but may have received workshops or readings. Visit Sundance.org/programs/theatre-lab-guidelines for details.
Sundance provides each selected artist with a $1,500 honorarium, as well as artistic support including actors, dramaturges, rehearsal space and stage management. Each lab culminates in a presentation for the theatre lab community and a feedback session with Sundance staff. Visit Sundance.org.
