The EmergeLAB@BAX was comprised by alums of the EmergeNYC program at the Hemispheric Institute for Performance and Politics. The goal of the LAB was to provide a non-curated, non-hierarchical space for artistic development, where the artists determine their own frameworks and processes for experimentation and growth. Building upon both the skills and community generated in EmergeNYC, the LAB deepened the conversation on the relationship between art & activism while forming new modes of practice in a format that balances the collective and the individual. The artists in the inaugural cohort are: Sabina Ibarrola, Jeca Rodríguez Colón, Mette LouLou von Kohl, Guy Yedwab, Dominic Bradley, Samantha Galarza, Benjamin Lundberg, Jesse Phillips-Fein, Katrina De Wees, Mary Notari, Maria Schirmer, Mieke D, and Megan Hanley.
Over 10 months, artists met bi-monthly to workshop their pieces together, and once a month in an open studio format for shared rehearsal time. The LAB culminated a shared showcase performance in October 2014.
