From March 28 through April 11, 2010, MASS MoCA will be the temporary home of a venerable theatrical institution, the Sundance Institute Theater Lab. Under the artistic direction of Philip Himberg, Producing Artistic Director of the Sundance Institute Theatre Program, the lab will provide several projects with guidance in the development of new work for the stage. A work-in-progress showing of one of them, The Escape Artist, a new work by John Kelly, the 2010 Sundance Time Warner Storytelling fellow-in-residence at MASS MoCA, will highlight the lab on Saturday, April 3, at 8 PM.

The Escape Artist is a collision of music, video and story. In a studio dubbing recording session for cinematic re-enactments of the paintings of Caravaggio, a singer hired to lay down the tracks channels the characters that populate the paintings, encounters unexpected technical difficulties, and reveals a turbulent personal history of his own.

"The current season represents a departure from our history and is unquestionably one of Sundance Institute's most innovative,” said Himberg. "The Lab at MASS MoCA is a fascinating collaboration between Sundance Institute and a major cultural institution that shares our values. We expect to learn a great deal as we take a step away from the familiarity of our fantastic Utah home and collaborate with new partners. And we are excited to welcome new talent into our family." The pilot lab was created because of a temporary loss of space at the Sundance Resort in Sundance, Utah, due to renovation.

While not being presented for public showings, additional works at the lab include: A Small Fire by Adam Bock, directed by Trip Cullman; Bwagamoyo by Shailja Patel, directed by Liesl Tommy; and Out of Orbit by Jennifer Maisel, directed by Jackson Gay. Dramaturgical support at the Sundance Institute Theatre Lab at MASS MoCA will be provided by Shirley Fishman, Director of Play Development at the La Jolla Playhouse, and Janice Paran, Sundance Institute Artistic Associate.
