2020 Performances

Performance Lab – “Acts of Love”

The current HB Performance Lab will engage a group of primarily international current and former students to build a virtual ensemble committed to creating and eventually recording a variety of short digital segments loosely inspired by the theme, “Acts of Love.”  The segment categories will include: stories/moments of remembered experience, music/song, movement/dance, comedy (sketch, stand-up, character, puppet-show, etc.).  Footage will eventually be selected, edited and framed by an animated narrative, yet to be created.

The long term goal is to create three webisodes and a template for a series.
