One of BAX's longest-running programs, the Space Grant Program is designed to give Brooklyn based choreographers, playwrights, and multi-disciplinary artists the opportunity to create new work in a setting that is conducive to working deeply and exploring new territory.
Join us as these artists take their new works-in-development from the studio to the stage. These evenings are designed to offer both artists and audience the opportunity to exchange their impressions of the work. A reception will follow Saturday's performance. During the reception, we invite the audience to engage the artists in conversations that delve into their intentions, inspirations, and the audience's perception.

Morgan Gould is a director of new plays. Her directing work has been seen most recently at HERE Arts Center, Dixon Place, The Living Theater, The Culture Project, The NY Fringe Festival, New Georges, Ensemble Studio Theater, APAC, Cherry Lane, The Jacob Javits Center, and other New York City venues.

She is currently the Associate Artistic Director of Young Jean Lee's Theater Company where she has worked on the recent premieres of LEAR, WE'RE GONNA DIE, and UNTITLED FEMINIST SHOW. As a generative artist, Morgan's own work is chiefly interested in exploring theatrical form by creating humorously scathing satirical works. Often done in collaboration with an ensemble of actors and designers (Amir Wachterman, Ronan Babbitt, Adam Blodgett, Chris Geary, Tom Pecinka, Ryan Seelig and Chris Barlow), Morgan likes to explode various theatrical conventions so we can examine why and what we consider "good theater".
