Journey Lab is an arts organization producing works that transform the passive consumption of the arts into life changing experiences. Our brand encourage connections between communities through the power of storytelling.
Rooted in a passion for storytelling, we believe in the extraordinary moments between people. Our aim is to communicate with contemporary, nontraditional theatre audiences who may feel alienated from traditional forms of art and to engage them in both creative dialogue and participation. Journey Lab International expands our reach to a global audience by taking our work further afield worldwide, assisting in the cultural exchange of global artists and sharing best practices as widely as possible. At our core, we seek to empower audiences with the freedom of discovery. We believe in accessible art.
UPCOMING (INTERNATIONAL) EXPERIENCE
Expanding the world of our legendary production in Moscow, Вернувшиеся – an entirely new world is launching this fall.
Your wardrobe. Your handwriting. Your choice of bath towels. How you take your tea. Every little nuance, every choice you make becomes your presented identity, compartmentalized by your disposition. We trick ourselves into creating a facade to shield our true characters from the rest of the world, separating our public and private lives. What we don’t take into consideration is that everything we do- our mannerisms, our habits, our unspoken preferences- they’re all giving us away. In the pursuit of comfort, knowledge and individuality, we are blinded and directionless. But when you strip yourself of all aspects of insincerity and live in the realm of blank observation, you can become the conductor of the predictable, hiding in plain sight. Who do we become when we step outside the idea of ourselves? How do we remain distinguishable when we choose to be faceless? And, more importantly, in the vast scope of those before us and those still to come, who do we want to be? In the face of repetition, expectation and carefully calculated pretenses, who will you choose to become?
