Third Rail Projects

Hailed as one of the foremost companies creating site-specific, immersive and experiential dance and theater, Third Rail Projects, led by artistic directors Zach Morris, Tom Pearson, and Jennine Willett, is dedicated to re-envisioning ways in which audiences engage with contemporary performance. They have made work in New York, nationally, and abroad since 2000. Their currently running, award-winning immersive hit Then She Fell was named as one of the “Top Ten Shows of 2012” by Ben Brantley of The New York Times, and acclaimed as one of the best theater experiences of 2013 by Vogue.

Fundamental to Third Rail Projects is the notion of re-imagining contexts for presenting contemporary work, as exemplified by a history of creating work sought after by avid dance and theater goers as well as underserved populations and those seeking unique experiences. Collaboration is integral to all Third Rail Projects endeavors, both in the creative process as well as the intersection with each new site, community, and cultural landscape in which they work. This manifests in numerous points of inquiry and programmatic objectives that foster artistic exchange and shared practice across unique communities.

In 2016-2017, the company premiered four major works, all of which were met with massive critical and audience recognition: As Time Goes By in St. Petersburg, Russia, Sweet & Lucky with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Learning Curve with Albany Park Theater Project in Chicago, Ghost Light with Lincoln Center Theater’s LTC3 at the Clare Tow Theater, and The Grand Paradise, in Brooklyn which ran for 11 months and garnered rave reviews and Critic’s Picks from The New York Times and Time Out New York, among others.

The artistic directors and company work nationally on new immersive and site-specific projects and internationally through the Global Performance Studio (GPS), which combines the company’s creative and educational offerings through a program of cultural listening and exchange. Third Rail Projects has been the recipient of several prestigious awards, including two New York Dance and Performance (Bessie) Awards for Then She Fell (2013) and Vanishing Point (2008), and the artistic directors were recently named among the 100 most influential people in Brooklyn Culture by Brooklyn Magazine.

Class Description

Led by Rebekah Morin, long time Third Rail Projects collaborator, performer, and teaching artist, this week- long intensive offers an exploration of the performance skills that come into play when performing for both intimate and large audiences where the audience and performers are not separated by a fourth wall. Participants will explore the unique skill-set required for interactive performance from the perspective of intelligent physicality. Each day will examine physical communication through a different lens, allowing participants to deeply examine their relationship to space, to other performers, and to audiences of all sizes, from the ambient, shifting landscapes of site- specific work to the intimacy of one on one immersive theater.
