Live Arts Bard
Bard College’s new residency and commissioning program for the performing arts
Live Arts Bard (LAB) is a laboratory where professional artists in theater, dance, and performance test ideas and develop new projects, many of which will be premiered at The Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College. Each year, LAB will invite a number of leading artists and companies from the United States and abroad to Bard’s campus. As our audience, you will have special access to sneak previews, artist talks, and work-in-progress showings.
