Emily Kikta & Peter Walker

At Vineyard Arts Project, Emily Kikta and Peter Walker will experiment with incorporating multimedia video content into live dance performance. Using their own original choreography created for this project, they explore how video can add to the experience in a live theater and create a more immersive audience experience. They will work on two different concepts: Kikta will film site specific choreography on the island to then integrate with a live stage piece to create a new way of experiencing storytelling through dance, Walker will incorporate multiple livestream cameras to capture different perspectives of the performance as it is happening to give the audience a new and deliberate focus of the movement.

Tickets available now!

The Ashley Bouder Project

Returning to Vineyard Arts Project for her second summer, Ashley Bouder will be bringing a group of dancers/choreographers to experience a choreographic workshop under The Ashley Bouder Project (ABP) umbrella. Through this, they will create a safe, friendly space to explore ideas with no pressure to put something on stage. If a new work does develop, though, it will be able to go into the ABP repertory and be presented as a premiere for an upcoming show. ABP is an arts collaborative dedicated to furthering the inclusion of women and marginalized people in leadership roles in the performing arts world.

A New Musical from the Creators of TRANSPARENT

Writer, creator and director Jill Soloway will take their groundbreaking Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning series TRANSPARENT to Vineyard Arts Project on the first stop to creating a new musical. Along with their sister Faith Soloway (music & lyrics), Tony award-winning producer Eva Price (Oklahoma!, Jagged Little Pill) and producer Andrea Sperling (Transparent, I Love Dick), Soloway will craft a new musical that centers around the Pfefferman family after their parent, Maura, comes out as transgender late in life. Through song, we will follow the Pfeffermans and the boundaries they violate, the queerness they inherited, and the universal struggle to live as their authentic selves. This developmental work will culminate in a performance at Vineyard Arts Project featuring a selection of songs from the upcoming show!
