This summer, Bated Breath, a theater collective, will be in residency at Real Art Ways, creating new, bite-sized works of interactive theater inspired by the visual arts program. The 5-year-old company will work in the galleries devising theatrical responses to each art installation as part of Bated Breath's "Interludes" program, which conceives short theater pieces custom tailored to engage other organizations' particular audiences.

From June through August, Bated Breath will perform at the Real Art Ways' Creative Cocktail Hours, which are held on the thrid Thursday of each month. Performances will occur throughout the evening, starting at 6 p.m. on June 21, July 19 and Aug. 16. A full evening showcasing all of Bated Breath's works produced during the residency will be performed at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, July 27 and 28 at Real Art Ways, which is located at 58 Arbor St. in Hartford.
