experimental nitery studio

Starting in 2016, TAPS hands over the Nitery Theater to its students. The Nitery, an 83-seat black box theater, will be the first-ever student-run theater space at Stanford.

Through this program, TAPS aims to foster the development of new and creative ideas in performance while providing students with valuable practical experience in theater leadership.

A Managing Board composed of TAPS graduate students and undergraduate majors will lead the Experimental Nitery Studio. All programming will be selected and managed by the Board.

THE 2017 READING SERIES

Working on a play? A poem? A manifesto? Anything that needs to be read aloud to others?

The Nitery Experimental Theater (NExT) invites you to apply to its 2017 reading series, starting Week 8 of Winter Quarter through the Spring Quarter. NExT is a new student-run theater, which will open with a full season of aesthetically provocative and politically constructive performance in Fall 2017. This year, we are soliciting applications for low tech projects (not full productions) in search of a space and a public to work through a new artistic idea. Workshops, readings, gatherings, or performances – are welcome to apply.

We hope that such informal events will create an artist-first atmosphere to welcome our community into NExT. For those of you who have ambitions beyond our small-scale series: we can’t wait to meet you, and stay tuned for information on how to apply to our 2017-2018 inaugural season.

Simply fill out an application, attach any relevant textual material, and send it along to us. All Stanford undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply. Applications are considered and accepted on a rolling basis; the final deadline for any applications is January 30th. Please see the application for more details, and feel free to email us at nitery-theater-board@lists.stanford.edu with any questions.
