This year’s Lab, News of the Strange, will commission three new works by emerging artists exploring a collection of rarely seen tales from The One Thousand and One Nights, as well as early Medieval Arab fantasy writing that pre-dates even the earliest known transcriptions of these ancient Islamic tales. Lead artists include TMT Associate Artistic Director Moe Yousuf, Syrian / Palestinian / American dance artist Leyya Tawil, and The Million Underscores (led by Colombian-born theater director Nicolás Noreña & Timothy Scott).
