The LabRatsare a group of multidisciplinary artists in residence at CenterStage NY in New York City. Founded in 2009, we are committed to facilitating one another’s artistic growth by sharing and developing original work through our weekly Tuesday night workshops as well as our Experiment Sessions program, a twice yearly, day-long free performance of our works in process. We are dedicated to developing a personal relationship with our audiences and our community by breaking the boundaries between stage and audience. We invite feedback, share food and drink, and present our work in various stages of development in order to create a collaborative dialogue with our community.
