This spring, Pivot Arts joins Loyola University’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts to launch a unique incubator program for artists at Mundelein Center. The multidisciplinary performance organization will partner with the university to provide space for ensembles to develop original and collaborative work that involves students as mentees on each project.
Both Pivot Arts and Loyola’s DFPA hope to watch this inaugural program expand and foster a dynamic laboratory atmosphere for theater and performance. “We hope it will provide varied and rich experiences for our students and support a growing body of innovated work,” said DFPA Chair Sarah Gabel.
