About this Event
Meet Skylar and Olive, childhood best friends who spend all their days together in Olive's treehouse. Each floorboard and plank is full of memories—some joyful, some unbearably painful. As the girls grow up and apart, will the treehouse become a place of childhood nostalgia, or of childhood trauma?
About The Host: The Sarah Lawrence College Theatre Program is a community of generous and engaged artists who value diverse, intentional, and rigorous research, process, and creation. We hold each other and ourselves accountable to responsibly challenge ourselves and each other to foster our growth as individuals and collaborative artists. We support innovation, not only in the art that we produce but also in the systems that we make to learn, share, and create. Through an interdisciplinary curriculum that prioritizes equality, care, and experimentation, we aim to create an artistic environment steeped in joy in order to envision and build a better future. This is an open and inclusive community where everyone is welcome.The Theatre Program is focused on deep collaboration, community building, and interdisciplinarity. We support performance and theater artists through a curriculum crossing the boundaries of design, acting, directing, management, performing, writing, producing, voice, movement, and much more. Classes are taught by working professionals with the advantage of additional classes in the music and dance programs. We hope each student brings their own histories, experiences, and stories into the ecosystem of the program to share in the development of new questions, political urgencies, and social engagement. Together we will research and practice theatre and performance to expand the possibilities of critical togetherness through body, story, and experience.
