Attendance Policy: Students must attend all ICPP sessions in order to successfully complete the program.
Required Withdrawal: The ICPP reserves the right to refuse to retain any student in any program or course at any time. An instructor may require a student to withdraw from a course if the student fails to meet the announced conditions of enrollment. Students are responsible for withdrawing officially even if the instructor has determined that they may not continue in the course.
Academic Discipline: ICPP students are expected to maintain a B average and have completed all work for their courses by April 15 (no outstanding incompletes) in order to be eligible to be awarded the certificate.
Tuition and Fees: Tuition for ICPP is $9,500. A $500 deposit is due by May 15 in order to secure a spot in the program. Full tuition is due by June 17.

(Project realized: 2012)
Picture Jasper Ridge is a performance hike and new work by choreographer Ann Carlson, the inaugural visiting artist at Stanford University's Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve. In Picture Jasper Ridge, Carlson restages archival photographs, unearthing the history and the trajectory of this land. Audience members follow trained docents on silent tours through the preserve, encountering performers staged in grayscale, frozen still, recreating an archival photograph on or near the spot where the photograph was originally taken. Picture Jasper Ridge asks us to consider not only how we tell our history through formal methods, but also, how that history gets reperformed in the space of our day-to-day lives, and how we document, research, and preserve. A video about the project can be found here.

Bebe Miller: Tracing History was a project that grew out of ICPP into an exhibition (which was on view at Ohio State University's Urban Arts Space August – October 2012) that brought together archival material, sets, rehearsal and performance video, music, conversations with peers, and a new installation by video artist Maya Ciarrocchi. Together, these objects explored Bebe Miller's ideas and achievements over a 25-year career in a new setting. The exhibition complemented the September 2012 world premiere of A History, The Bebe Miller Company's latest project, and was presented in conjunction with tours, artist salons, and gallery talks. Documentation of the project is archived here.

Artist and Independent Curator
(Project realized: 2012)
Recollecting Performance presents Southern Californian performance artists and the performance garments they wore through 1970–1983. Innovators of a movement that would forever change thinking about art and the body, these artists brought issues of race, gender, and politics to its borders. This experimental approach to exhibiting performance art invites viewers to imagine themselves within the garments and the performances represented. Framed by memory and in line with the oral tradition of sharing experiences of performance with others, the artists who originally wore these garments create secondary performances by their reconstructions, installations, and audio recordings. The figural void contained by the garments, along with smells, shadows, and stains, engage the memory of the artist and the imagination of the viewer.

Producing Associate in Humanities and Engagement at New York Live Arts
(Project to be realized: 2013)
other.explicit.bodies. is two curated evenings of performance presented as a part of Dance New Amsterdam's LATE NITE series, a triannual event that gives a voice to artists working within the mediums of performance art, burlesque and experimental theater. The artists featured in other.explicit.bodies. deal explicitly with themes of eroticism, gender politics and otherness in live performance. For more information, please see the description on the Dance New Amsterdam website.

(Revised project to be realized: 2013)
Anacostia Lasagna will highlight the food culture of the Anacostia community through a participatory, performative experience as a part of the opening festivities of the LUMEN8Anacostia Festival. The all-day performance, led by the Washington, DC-based performance group banished? productions, will call for Anacostia residents to contribute gifts to layer into a "creative lasagna": rolling pins, water, salt, flour, eggs, conversation with neighbors, stories, music and song, chairs, laughter. Residents and participants will be asked to collectively make a pasta dough recipe that they will roll and assemble into four different lasagnas that take inspiration from the neighborhood. This communal performance of food-making and food-partaking, accompanied by local voluntary musicians, with a backdrop video screening of pre-recorded stories as told by residents, aims to gather the community in the creation of a communal narrative, and reinvent the concept of what a performance is, and what the act of eating should be.
*The project did not receive the required funding, which prioritized Anacostia resident artists, so it was not produced at the LUMEN8 festival as originally proposed. The project is, however, undergoing a transformation while retaining its intent to creatively gather the community. banished? productions and Juliana are continuing to work with the Honfleur Gallery in Anacostia to realize this vision.

Based on the grounds of former dairy farm in rural Ashfield, Massachusetts, Double Edge Theatre has blended their artistic process and product into a living culture that embraces the assets of the local community. Drawing on their long history of hosting local artists and international artists for collaboration with the ensemble, The Barn at Double Edge is a new project to bring performing artists from New England and beyond to explore a wide range of opportunities for artists and audiences to reflect on the meaning of community through performances and residencies. For her project, Adrienne curated an inaugural year of programming for The Barn at Double Edge with input from the Double Edge Theatre ensemble members.
Producing Artistic Director at Risk/Reward
The Risk/Reward Theater Series is a season of contemporary theater performances presented in Portland, Oregon. Risk/Reward aims to support the creation of new performance work and the advancement of the art form while also providing direct, meaningful opportunities for local audiences to interact with the artists and hear them discuss their work. The curatorial focus of the series is to give viewers a lens with which to examine themselves and the surrounding world, while provoking variable and relational responses to the work.
