Living Archive: Memories from the Lab
Here is a Facebook link we found to the legendary Human Observation Lab. This page includes videos, photos, and memories from the artists involved. Keep an eye out for a Frontier interview with one of the founders, Leo Wetherill.
The Human Observation Lab was Kansas City’s downtown performance & arts space located at 1012 McGee St. Originated in late 1987, the Lab operated until Aug. 1990. The various spaces in the building were home to The Stimulus & Response Company, Little or No Quality Theatre Playhouse productions, Gorilla Theatre Productions and Hi-Sine Productions. Many KC bands (Mongol Beach Party, The Coctails, Psychowelders, BCR, Sin City Disciples, Gin Bankers, Blue Museum and Mudhead) were frequently known to play on weekends.
