TPL™*

THE PERFORMANCE LAB™
is building a community
of adventuresome artists
and arts professionals
who will collaboratively create
a network of interactive studios
across America
for the exchange
of innovative arts experiences.

TPL™’s strength is in partnerships;
each project undertaken
builds
on the expertise of collaborators.
TPL™’s ultimate goal is to celebrate
and to preserve America’s heritage
in the performing arts,
and to provide
tools for the preservation
of arts masterpieces little known
to a wide public
(including the next generation
of American performers).

When you click on the titles below, you will be at the beginning
of an Interactive Residency.
Then, page after page,
you can trace each project
as it develops
.
