The Theatre Centre RESIDENCY program
Call for Submissions
The Theatre Centre’s Residency Program is at the very heart of what we do: a structured two-year program (sometimes longer!) provides groups/artists with the necessary space, funding and mentorship to craft ideas still in their infancy into finished works that are provocative, innovative, and ambitious. Residency facilitates a highly collaborative artistic process that supports new work led by directors, designers, composers, choreographers, architects, visual artists, or even neurologists. We are looking for good ideas.
Residency has its roots in the R&D (Research & Development) program, established by The Theatre Centre in 1983.
Some things to note:
• We are committed to Indigenous artists leading artistic projects at The Theatre Centre, and strongly encourage applications from First Nations, Inuit, and Métis artists.
• Earlier this fall we announced our commitment to supporting the recognition of comedy as an art form via Comedy is Art. In this round of Residency submissions, we will specifically be offering a space to an artist/artists working in comedy.
• We are also encouraging applications from composers and/or choreographers, though we are excited to receive applications from any range of artistic practices.
Residency encourages artists to create a new work from scratch, or to re-imagine an old idea – an idea that will form the basis of a potentially important work of art.
