New York Theatre Barn will launch its Choreography Lab's 9th season March 23 at 7 PM ET with a in-person and live streamed presentation. Set for Baryshnikov Arts Center, the event will feature choreography from Angela Nicole Patmon, Courtney Laine Self, and Zanza Steinberg.
Patmon will choreograph Smash star Jaime Cepero's Francois and the Rebels, a punk-rock musical about the 1791 Haitian Revolution. Self will choreograph a musical about an oceanic cult by The Lightning Thief songwriter Rob Rokicki and The Lightning Thief performer Sara Beth Pfeifer titled Experience Marianas, and Steinberg will choreograph a new and more inclusive look at the untold stories of radium girls called Perpetual Sunshine & Ghost Girls by Lynne Shankel and Sara Cooper.
[title of show] writer and star Hunter Bell will serve as the lab's guest moderator while Tori Crow will serve as the associate producer. Collaborating with the choreographers in a continuing partnership with the company, Full Out Creative will film the pieces live.
The New Works Lab, curated by Avital Asuleen, gives three choreographers the opportunity to work on three original musicals in development and offers a collaborative platform for writers and choreographers to develop movement earlier in a show's journey. This year's musicals have all been featured in New York Theatre Barn's New Works Series. The Choreography Lab is funded in part by the Amber Foundation.
