IRT is a grassroots laboratory for independent theater and performance in New York City, providing space and support to a new generation of artists. Tucked away in the old Archive Building in Greenwich Village, IRT’s mission is to build a community of emerging and established artists by creating a home for the development and presentation of new work.

An offshoot of IRT’s 3B Development Series, the Westside Experiment offers students the skills to create original devised theater in collaboration with a working theater company in residence at IRT. This program in 2017 is designed to provide enriching career development opportunities to Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing youth through the Westside Experiment. The progressive Young Actors Laboratory program still covers all the theater essentials, like physical-acting technique, improvisation & script writing, but with a decidedly downtown twist. This years unique summer experience will include a fusion of sign language, spoken word, mime, storytelling, dance and music. No prior acting experience necessary. Artists of all disciplines encouraged to apply. Bring an open mind and have it blown away!
