explore the art of collaboration

Work better together through creative collaboration. We offer interdisciplinary LABS and WORKSHOPS to help you push the boundaries of your field.



StudioLab is Austin's experiential space for cultivating your work in an ensemble-building environment.
Be creative. Build ensemble.



Rebecca Whitehurst

To give back to her native Austin community, interdisciplinary artist Rebecca Whitehurst founded StudioLab-- a synthesis of her work and teaching. She is committed to providing space for local organizations to practice and grow across disciplines. 

Rebecca has worked around the globe as a theater animal—actor, dancemaker, writer and director. She received her BA in Philosophy from Stanford, and then attended the CalArts MFA program in Choreography before embarking on a professional career with Diavolo Dance Theater. Freelancing as an actor and choreographer in New York City led her to the Institute for Advanced Theater Training MXAT/A.R.T. at Harvard, where she received an MFA in Acting and performed in regional and off-broadway theater. While on a Fulbright Scholarship to Russia, Rebecca spent a year as a guest teacher at the Moscow Art Theatre School. Currently, she teaches both acting and dance at St. Edward’s University. Her co-developed piece, NOTES…, was recently presented in Fusebox 2016 at Salvage Vanguard Theater.

Each collaborator brings to the work a different set of strengths and resistances. We provide both irritation and inspiration for each other—the grist for each other’s pearl making.
