Since 2007, IRT Theater has made a mission of hosting radically affordable, full-immersion development residences for emerging and established artists. An offshoot of IRT's 3B Development Series, the Westside Experiment will offer students the skills to create original devised theater in collaboration with a working theater company in residency at IRT. Students will explore and learn physical acting technique, movement, voice, and moment-to-moment acting choices.

No prior acting experience necessary. Visual artists of all disciplines encouraged to apply. Bring an open mind and have it blown away!
