The Central Heating Lab Deepens the Theatre Experience
– March 25, 2008 – ACT – A Contemporary Theatre launches its innovative Central Heating Lab (CHL) initiative during the 2008 season. CHL is devoted to nurturing and supporting new works, new talent, and local artists spanning not only theatre, but also cabaret, music, dance, spoken word, film, and performance and visual art. Uniquely positioned to provide the space and resources to the development of new projects in a collaborative environment, ACT will partner with emerging and seasoned local artists, and give them the heat, sustenance and pressure required to experiment, grow and transform their work and reach new audiences.
“The Central Heating Lab serves as both a catalyst and an incubator for new works, new art, and new artists,” said Director of New Works Carlo Scandiuzzi. “It thrives within ACT because ACT is a cultural engine that promotes new art, thought, and a higher degree of artistic excellence. And, aligned with our mission, The Central Heating Lab is dedicated to supporting the artistic community to which it belongs – .”
