Creation Lab

March 15 - April 16

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.

Advanced Spectacle Immersion

Flexible dates for 5-8 months (see details below)

Alumni are invited to apply for an Advanced Spectacle Immersion, with flexible dates for 5-8 months, beginning any time January through March and ending either in June or in August. Open to Alumni only. 2017 is an especially exciting time for Advanced Training at Double Edge as participants will be included in creating an original Spectacle in the Center of the Town of Ashfield. Subsequently the Town Spectacle material will be used to create our annual Summer Spectacle at the Farm. 

The Ashfield Town Spectacle and Culture Fair will include the entire DE Company, artists and community members from all over Ashfield and the Hilltowns, and our Advanced Students. During the day there will be performances all over town, and in the evening these will come together in a parade ending at the Lake (or even above the lake!) Advanced Immersion Students will engage in this unique Spectacle creation process and exchange with community participants.

Email or call Jeremy at training@doubleedgetheatre.org
