Improbable Stage


June 26- July 1 2018

IN RESIDENCE: June 26- July 1, 2018

The week at IRT was used for movement improvisation and topic exploration.  Improbable Stage used the time to consider different ideas for a new show and to evaluate our development process as a company.  Associate Artistic Director, Tali Custer, directed the sessions, bringing in new topic ideas for each rehearsal.  Sarah Misch led the company in new movement/dance techniques to discover the choreographic potential within the development process.  The week at IRT provided many new ideas about both the process and the content of the upcoming show.

Tucked away in the old Archive Building in Greenwich Village,  IRT’s mission is to build a community of emerging and established artists by creating a home for the development and presentation of new work. Some of the artists we have supported include Young Jean Lee, Reggie Watts and Mike Daisey.
