Leslie-Lohman Queer Theater & Performance Residency for Emerging Artists 2019
The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art's residency for queer theater and performance aims to support emerging artists interested in advancing the nature and discourse of queer theory through experimental work. This summer, there will be two month-long residency slots: one in July and one in August. Accordingly, the two chosen artists will receive free rehearsal space in the Leslie-Lohman Museum's Project Space on Prince Street in SoHo for one month alongside access to the museum's archives, guidance from staff, and a modest artist honorarium of $800. At the end of the residency, artists will be expected to present a work-in-progress showcase within the Project Space.

Through the program, residents will also have the opportunity to stage their project at La MaMa, a premiere venue for experimental theater in the East Village. Details to be discussed with finalists.

As the first residency of its kind, we are looking for artists who show promise as leaders in the fields of performance art and experimental theatre. We are interested in artists whose work demonstrates a commitment to expanding the concept of queerness past its current norms — artists who, through multiple disciplines and genres — intend to create works of expansive vision and effort. For the submission proposal, musing on queer aesthetics and politics are particularly encouraged.

Past residents include Camilo Godoy and Cristina Pitter.
