Greetings from the Orchard Project!
We are proud to announce the eleven writers, composers, directors, and companies participating in our first New York City Greenhouse. The Orchard Project NYC Greenhouse is a new accelerator for artists to generate ambitious and unexpected work, form new relationships and develop a new generation of theater. Through the Greenhouse, the Orchard Project will support more artists in innovative ways.
Over the course of the year-long residency, Greenhouse participants will become an integral part of the Orchard Project's artist community. The group will meet monthly to develop and workshop pieces, share new work and receive feedback from their peers. Membership in the NYC Greenhouse will peak in a session for NYC Greenhouse members at the Orchard Project Summer Residency in Saratoga Springs, NY. Members will also receive dramaturgical support, space resources in the Orchard Project’s NYC facility, artistic matchmaking advice from the OP artistic staff, invitations to OP alumni shows in New York City, artist events, and more. Members were selected through a competive open process that took place in autumn 2017.
The 2018 NYC Greenhouse members are: Alexander Borinsky, Emily Feldman, Leigh Fondakowski, Jeremy O Harris, Lubdub Theatre Co. (Caitlin Nasema Cassidy, Geoff Kanick, Miranda Rose Hall, Robert Duffley), Whitney Mosery, Abby Rosebrock, Heath Saunders, Angela Sclafani, Celine Song, Zack Zadek.
We are overjoyed to welcome this dynamic group of generative artists to The Orchard Project family!
