Each year, we invite some of the finest contemporary playwrights to develop their work in our home. These residencies give writers the opportunity to make their scripts production-ready with the help of actors and a director. Witness the transformation from first read-through to final performance and influence the work of these playwrights through your feedback.

Two people witness the same event, yet describe it differently. Sometimes you feel you’re being watched, but you don’t know by whom. Other times your eyes are wide open and yet you don’t truly see what’s in front of you. Visual and performance artist Laura Anderson Barbata’s multimedia work explores these phenomena: What do we see without our eyes? How do our eyes betray us? Travel to the Amazon Rainforest, meet The Ugliest Woman in the World, and set aside all your preconceived notions of beauty, if even just for a moment.
