The Brick Resident Artist Application
This is the application form for The Brick Resident Artist Program. Please also remember to email submissions@bricktheater.com with an introductory note and attachments of related materials (script, pictures, resumes).


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!

The Brick Theater, Inc. asks that all productions play only at The Brick (and not at other New York City venues) 12 months prior to the start of the run and one (1) month after the close of the run, unless alternative arrangements are made with The Brick (workshops excepted). It is fine to apply to other theaters or festivals with the same proposed production, but should you accept an invitation to perform at The Brick, please your acceptance as an agreement to said exclusivity (enforced by contract). Do you agree to these terms?
Payment: *
If accepted into The Brick Resident Artist Program, you will enjoy all the benefits of the program, as detailed on the application page (www.bricktheater.com/applications). Four weeks after your Residency concludes, you will be responsible for a guarantee to The Brick of $2,000 per week, deductible out of box office intake. If your box office exceeds that amount, all funds beyond $2,000 per week will be paid to you or your company. If your box office does now achieve that amount, the balance will be due to The Brick at the date of reconciling (as defined in the contract). Do you agree to these terms?
