The audrey residency summit: coming this September!

 

In four speedy years, our Audrey Residency program — 3 weeks spent working on a new-play project over the course of a year + a monthly community gathering — has become a productive, indispensable delight.  44 affiliated artists have passed through it, individually or in collaboration — nearly a quarter of our artist community.  Their 28 fiercely inventive projects enter at various stages of development, and leave at various stages of development… and because this is no ordinary program, we’ve never quite found a way to provide an ordinary end-of-year culminating event. So here goes something.

Presenting the 1st
AUDREY RESIDENCY SUMMIT
featuring excerpts, full readings, open studio events
and conversations based on the resident-hosted, prompt-based
community chats at the heart of each residency year

SEPTEMBER 15 TO 17 20017

in The Room at 520 8th Avenue and satellite spaces.
Stay tuned for full schedule!
