Berkeley Repertory Theatre has announced plans to launch a summer lab of artist residencies at The Ground Floor, the theater's new Center for the Creation and Development of New Work.

The lab will involve a four-week period during which dozens of artists will have residencies of four days to three weeks to dine, create, and collaborate at Berkeley Rep's new West Berkeley campus. Seed money for the project is provided by grants from the James Irvine Foundation's Artistic Innovation Fund and ArtPlace.

Those artists who have been awarded residencies include Julia Cho, David Edgar, Amy Freed, Marcus Gardley, Madeleine George, Jessica Goldberg, Rinne Groff, Lauren Gunderson, Danny Hoch, Naomi Iizuka, Erin Kamler, Kathryn Keats, Carson Kreitzer, Kwame Kwei-Armah, Dan LeFranc, Ellen McLaughlin, Michael Mitnick, Richard Montoya, Itamar Moses, Peter Sinn Nachtrieb, Lynn Nottage, Dominic Orlando, Greg Pierotti, Amelia Roper, Erika Chong Shuch, Octavio Solis, Heidi Stillman, and Meiyin Wang.

The artist will be joined to work on projects by directors, designers, musicians, and performers such as Matthias Bossi, Dexter Bullard, Brian Carpenter, Nils Frykdahl, David Warren Keith, Leigh Silverman, Tony Taccone, Eric Ting, Mark Valadez, and Beth Wilmur.
