"I have done teaching and performing residencies at hundreds of colleges and universities all over the US and I always recommend the Trinity La Mama propram to the adventurous and challenge-seeking young artists I work with  who want a NY experience. They will find a fantastic creative community and a highly hands-on expereince of theatre and performance at its most boundary-pushing. Dive in!"
-Tim Miller, Performer
Founding Director of Performance Space 122, NYC and Highways Performance Space, Los Angeles
