Chemistry on Stage: VoxFest Is a ‘Creative Laboratory’

There’s one laboratory at Dartmouth this summer that won’t contain any scientists or chemical reagents. Instead, actors, directors, and playwrights will concoct artistic chemistry in campus performance spaces during VoxFest, a weeklong theater residency that brings together Dartmouth alumni, students, and faculty to create and present works-in-progress.
“We call it a creative laboratory,” says Kate Mulley ’05, a New York-based playwright and co-founder of Vox Theater, which produces VoxFest. “It’s a way for artists to come to Hanover and work on pieces they wouldn’t [otherwise] have the space or time to work on.” She describes this year’s productions as “a lot of really smart, thought-provoking plays that explore different issues in the world and society.” It’s the second year for the VoxFest collaboration.
