If you want an escape from the asphalt jungle this Summer, a new performance festival is starting in Great Barrington, Massachusetts featuring two of our favorite shows from COIL 2013 and a new show by Half Straddle / New York City Players. The program was founded by Ilan Bachrach and in addition to presenting series they also have a residency program in the works:
We are dedicated to presenting large-scale bold new works of contemporary performance in the Berkshires. MLA is also committed to fostering the creation of new American works through development residencies culminating in work-in-progress showings. This residency is for highly-talented companies or performing artists in need of space and time to create new work.
