Development Lab was a partnership between producers Alan Lane and Leonie Hart and Theatre in the Mill. It ran between Autumn 2008 - Spring Summer 2011.
Development Lab was set up to to:
- Initiate and develop events that raise the profile of Theatre in the Mill and the understanding of the University of Bradford as a natural home for artists and innovation in the field.
- Animate the building; creating a human database of connections, opportunities and resource for those associated with the building, the university and beyond.
- Provide opportunity for younger and developing artists to hone their product, and craft in an understanding and supportive manner.
- Create opportunity for an increasing audience to witness innovative work, to understand it's making and to engage with theatre projects and theatre makers of national standing and status that might not normally make the University of Bradford , or indeed Bradford, their home
