InTandem Lab is focused on producing performances that deepen our understanding of the world we live, inviting a wide range of interdisciplinary voices to think in and through actions. Founded on the guiding principles of collaboration, process and training, we are most interested in crossing, bridging and re-configuring boundaries by questioning traditional assumptions of ownership and ways of creating theater.
