In Real Life: Studio provides a glimpse into the working processes of artists. Throughout the fall a select group of artists utilizes spaces in the museum to convene and rehearse new material, including theater, dance, music, and performance. While some artists and collectives will simply discuss or workshop material, others will produce a new project from rehearsal to final performance.
Rachel Kauder Nalebuff, director Deena Selenow, and three performers rehearse for The Bumps, which will be presented Feb 2-4, 2017 as part of the Skirball Cultural Center's inaugural Performance Lab series.
