Target Margin Theater to Open Permanent Home in Brooklyn
The Sunset Park location will include performance and rehearsal spaces as well as offices.
Target Margin Theater has announced the opening of the company's first permanent home. Located in the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn, the space will include two large rehearsal studios, office space, and a 3,250-square-foot performance space. The theater is named the Doxsee after founding member and resident designer Lenore Doxsee.
The Doxsee will have a Grand Festival Opening from November 9-11, featuring three days of performances including a sneak peek of a new work by Target Margin and the work of over 40 theater and performance artists. This year Target Margin will also launch a new Residency Program providing space and time for companies and individual artists to develop new and challenging works.
The 2017-18 season is set to continue with a multiyear exploration of The Thousand and One Nights. The folk tales will be examined in One Night (March 22-April 21), the first section of a larger theatrical adaptation directed by Target Margin Theater founding artistic director Herskovits, and in 1001 LABS (May 31-June 23), four productions of various tales lead by four diverse artists.
The season will also feature a series of free community events in early 2018, bringing local residents, artists, activists, and scholars together to discuss the political, social, and artistic influence of The Thousand and One Nights.
For over 25 years, Target Margin Theater has been interpreting classic texts, lesser-known works, and new plays inspired by existing sources. In addition, Target Margin has served over 1,000 artists through its annual incubator LAB festival and has nurtured the next generation of theater makers via a yearlong fellowship program.
