The Summer Institute

The Summer Institute is a free, three-week performance workshop for teenagers in the public school system, founded by Wooster Group member Kate Valk and Ariana Smart Truman. The workshop is organized around a selected text and sessions with guest artists in many aspects of performance (ranging from movement to writing to voice training to video techniques). Students are accepted as young as twelve and are invited back every summer until they graduate from high school, at which time they may return as interns, and ultimately instructors or guest artists. The program culminates in three public performances for supporters, friends, and family.
