Since 1997, Philip Himberg has been the Producing Artistic Director of the Sundance Institute Theatre Program which provides year-round support for playwrights and theatres artists on two continents. He expanded the program to include two new laboratories: The Sundance Institute Theatre Lab at White Oak and Playwrights Retreat at Ucross. In addition, he has created the Sundance Institute Theatre “international initiative” aimed at including Eastern European and East African participation at the theatre labs. In 2010, Sundance Theatre will unveil three new satellite labs: The Theatre Lab at MASS MoCA (North Adams, Massachusetts), the Theatre Lab at Governors Island (New York City) and Sundance/East Africa – a three week Lab in Lamu, Kenya supporting artists from four East African countries. In addition to his work at Sundance, Philip has worked as a director at the nation’s leading regional theatres, including Playwrights Horizons, Huntington Theatre Company, Arena Stage, Philadelphia Theatre Co. and others. He is also a published essayist (“Family Albums” in Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys, Dutton).
