On April 11, 12 and 13, Aaron Landsman will present APPOINTMENT, his first performance as part of his three-year ASU GAMMAGE RESIDENCY.

APPOINTMENT is a series of intimate THEATER works that are presented in office spaces by ASU Gammage Resident Artist Aaron Landsman in collaboration with local artists and the audience. Using the rituals and environment of the workplace as a departure point, APPOINTMENT takes a situation that can seem beneath examination and turns it into a surprising, entertaining and thought provoking experience. APPOINTMENT was developed in partnership with theater and dance companies as well as individual artists, and the result pushes the concept of theater to unpredictable and captivating places.
" Aaron is a gifted and unique theater artist with an international profile. We are excited to partner with him over the next three years to realize theater projects that have a lasting impact on our ASU, local theater, and general communities, says Michael Reed, Senior Director of Programs and Organizational Initiatives at ASU Gammage.
Aaron Landsman is ASU Gammage's current Gammage Residency Artist following in the footsteps of Bill T. Jones, SITI Company, Anne Bogart and Daniel Bernard Roumain. Landsman is an actor, writer, teacher and director, who performs around the world to critical acclaim while teaching at such prestigious institutions as Julliard and NYU. Perhaps more importantly, Landsman has been tearing the concept of theater apart and putting it back together in fascinating and compelling ways that put real cities and real people in the middle of it all.
