The annual three-week retreat provides playwrights, directors, librettists and composers the opportunity to develop their material away from the pressures of metropolitan areas.
The Banff Centre lab replaces the annual Utah lab at the Sundance Resort, which is currently undergoing renovations. Sundance has also held satellite labs at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art and Governors Island in New York harbor this past year.
Sundance provides each selected artist with a $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.
The cut-off date is Oct. 1. Application and guidelines are available online at Sundance.org
