CoHo Lab

web site

CoHo Lab launched in August 2016 for CoHo Productions to provide dedicated space, time and resources to theatre artists developing new works of performance.

As studio spaces become less accessible, and methods of collaborative theatre-making become more project-specific, CoHo Lab provides a crucial service and extends CoHo’s mission to nurture and support exceptional Portland-based theatre artists.

Selected artists receive a 20-30 hour workshop residency to develop their work and artist stipends are provided. Each Lab includes a private/invited showing for the artists to receive professional feedback, then culminates in a ticketed showing for a public audience.

For audiences who enjoy new work mini-festivals like Risk-Reward and JAW, these casual showings are a rare chance to see a sampler of solo performances, original plays, ensemble devising, one-on-one performance encounters and other exciting performance.


August 6 – 19, 2018

Selected artists will receive a 20-30 hour workshop residency at CoHo to develop their work between August 6 and 19.
Artists will receive professional peer feedback in a private/invited showing prior to a ticketed public showing on August 19.
Artist stipends are provided.

Lead Artist name, contact information, and bio

Describe the scale and content of a curated feedback session and possible public showing (How many people/who would you like to invite and what might the focus of that feedback session be? List names of people you would invite to the feedback session)
