The Brick’s Resident Artist Program offers new and established experimental theater artists exclusive use of The Brick for one or more weeks and the encouragement to reinvent the theater space with surprising environments. A BRAP Residency also includes full staff support, full use of The Brick’s non-profit umbrella for The Costume Collection and Materials for the Arts, active press representation, ticketing services, free space for a fundraising event, a pre-residency photo & video shoot at the theater, audience development support, intern assistance and a production grant fundraising advisor.
Proposals with script and video from the proposed work will generally be considered more heavily than works that are only described. Even if you can only produce a draft script scene and a rehearsal video scene, it will vastly improve your acceptance chances to show us samples of what you are proposing, rather than samples of previous work alone.
The Brick is currently adjudicating Residency applications for Spring season of 2016 (January through early May). Applications for dates beyond June 2016 are also accepted and reviewed at present.
BRAP artists will be marketed as part of The Brick's Residency Season.
Selected Artists will be responsible for a $2250/week fee to The Brick, payable out of box office at the end of the run. If you think you will sell out two 60-seat houses per week with $20 tickets, you've nearly made your guarantee!
