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.
