'New York Lands' - NYC 2016


In 2016, Carlos García Estévez and Wagner College Theatre will collaborate to create New York Lands, a devised play where the actors will be the authors of their own show.


From 2-14 January 2016, a dozen Wagner students will be with Carlos in Amsterdam to study different approaches to devised theatre, based on research done by Manifesto Poetico Laboratory. Also participating in the workshop will be Pascale Lecoq, director of School of Jacques Lecoq and the Laboratory of Movement Study (LEM) in Paris.

Wagner students can apply for the Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) course in Amsterdam beginning on 1 September 2015.


Two internships are available for the Amsterdam workshop, which will include the possibility to perform in NYC (see below).  The internships are open to Dutch Theatre Students. Applications at manifestopoetico@gmail.com


Immediately following the workshop in Amsterdam, Wagner College Theatre will produce New York Lands, an original play based on the students’ own research and training.  Auditions will be held on 19-21 January, with opening night on 1 March 2016.
