ON MOVEMENT

FOR NEW MUSICALS DURING

INCUBATION

creating movement at the intersection of theatre and film

In the 1 Show/3 Choreographers lab, 3 emerging choreographers who are passionate about the development of new musicals, will each work with an ensemble of dancers to create choreography from the never before staged musical The Lesson. Choreographers Tiger Brown, Kathy Liu, and Mayte Natalio will explore excerpts from the original musical written by Avi Amon (The Copper Children), Nolan Doran (Head Over Heels), and Ty Defoe (Straight White Men), about a fantastical reimagining of a chance encounter between a revolutionary Beethoven and a more-established Mozart in Vienna in 1787. The company has partnered with Full Out Creative who will collaborate with the choreographers on filming their pieces.

Curated by Avital Asuleen, the lab will continue its commitment to a mentorship component created last season that pairs each choreographer with an established mentor choreographer. Mentors JoAnn M. Hunter (School of Rock, Harmony), Denis Jones (Tootsie, Honeymoon in Vegas), and Lorin Latarro (Mrs. Doubtfire, Waitress) will meet with the three choreographers and writers to discuss an initial approach into the work, and will provide feedback during their rehearsal process.

The health and safety of all participating artists and personnel have been our main priority throughout this process. We've managed to safely create new work while adhering to New York State's Media Production Guidelines, CDC Guidelines, NYC Media Guidance, and Broadway Dance Center's COVID-19 Safety Policies.
