We hold application processes to create a balanced container of energy healers, artists and entrepreneurs in order to ensure highest transformational experience of its kind for our residents.
Nicaragua has a special focus on SOCIAL CIRCUS and performance development for ENVISION FESTIVAL. Much of the time in our program on the island will be dedicated to this. Workshops include clowning, theatre, choreography and act development. We also practice our standard classes in daily meditation, yoga, acroyoga, aerials, dance and other forms of movement.
As there is a Social Circus Initiative in this residency, Residents may choose to raise funds to help cover their stay. Family and friends are often more than happy to contribute when you are working with local youth from the Barrio. You can do this via GoFundMe or other similar websites.
Participation in this residency does not guarantee you a place on the perfomance team, nor does it guarantee you an Envision Ticket. That said, the opportunity to perform on the Envision stage at some capacity has been available to all residents who have applied themselves and take their art seriously. This experience is of high value to your portfolio!
Applications do not require immediate payment, but 50% deposits are required to hold your space.
