Creation Lab

April 10 - May 8

Join us in 2019 for our one-month Creation Lab! Artists will spend 4 weeks training with the ensemble and will use Double Edge’s multi-layered creation process of ongoing dramaturgy, mentored individual work, and design and music labs to create their own original material. The Creation Lab begins with full participation in the three-day Spring Intensive, which will lay a strong training foundation as the beginning context for exploration. After the Intensive, each artist will work with the program director to create an individualized plan for work. Artists will come with pre-identified research proposals, which can range from developing already formed projects to incubating work in the very first conceptual stages. The program is ideal for artists interested in authoring future works through a mentored and individualized process within an artistic community, and in a shared laboratory for work creation and experimentation. Creation Lab artists have created seeds for works in theatre, film, dance, literature, and music.

I am the Baron
Aug
15
to Aug 18

I am the Baron

inspired by The Surprising Travels & Adventures of Baron Munchausen by Rudolf Raspe

Performances: August 15 - August 18
Wednesday - Sunday, 7:30pm, rain or shine

Created by the Double Edge Ensemble, Directed by Matthew Glassman & Jeremy Louise Eaton

Strange worlds. Fantastical adventures. Mythic visions. Who is Baron Von Munchausen? Hero? Liar? Buffoon? Double Edge’s upcoming Spectacle is an ode to joy and a journey of the imagination indoors, outdoors, to the stars and back.

“Reality? Your reality, sir, is lies and balderdash and I’m delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever.”
― Baron Munchausen
