The SLC Performance Lab is produced by ContemporaryPerformance.com and the Sarah Lawrence College MFA Theatre Program. Each month a visiting artist to the MFA Theatre Program’s Grad Lab is interviewed. Grad Lab is one of the core components of the program where graduate students work with guest artists and develop group generated performance pieces monthly.
Alice Yuan Zhang is interviewed by Karen Loewy Movilla (‘21) and Chanel Smith (‘21).
