3LD’s newly-minted Salon Series brings artists together to examine techniques and technologies being utilized in live performance. Each Salon centers around a theme, with an emphasis on the designers’ process.  For each salon, three teams of designers work with a director, writer, actors and 3LD personnel to create a piece 5 – 20 minutes in length.  The company and designers receive 24-hour access in studio time for one week to ten days, as well as a small stipend. The process culminates in a showing, followed by a panel, where approaches are discussed through audience question and answer.  The aim of the program is to encourage cross-pollination between artistic disciplines and discussion around the evolution of technology, while giving artists the chance to connect with new collaborators.
