THE LAB rigorously investigates and explores physical theatre technique through the lens of ASA’s 3 main tenets – Relentless AUTHENTICITY, Absolute SPECIFICITY, and Reckless ABANDON. 

We treat the theatre space like a working scientific laboratory to experiment with original work, play with established scripts and explore various theatre, dance, and ensemble practices to expand the boundaries of theatrical convention without the pressure of production results.

ASA is committed to running the LAB on an ongoing basis for our Ensemble to train regularly and to keep us challenged and connected as active working theatre artists.

We also hold open LAB sessions where actors, dancers, singers, writers, designers and directors are all invited to come and experience ASA's unique approach to actor training and to the medium of theatre.
