Focusing on the development of new and devised work, this residency series invites artists to develop new work in beautiful, quiet and artistically rich surroundings far from the noise and pressure of the city, and then to share portions of that work with local audiences via a final showcase sharing (reading, workshop performance or simply demonstration depending on the project and artistic process).
This series also allows audiences to explore and learn about the development process and intends to support the development of local, regional and national artists and seeks to further develop our local talent pool through exposure to visiting artists. Typical residencies include honoraria for all participating artists and housing. Artists are responsible for their own travel costs. Residencies can last anywhere from two-three days to two-three weeks and include a simple showcase of the work developed for the community, a workshop production of the work or even a full production.
