Since 1991, our Artist In Residence programs have served as the core for our work with artists.
The AIR program provides participating artists with one to two years of uninterrupted artistic, technical, and administrative support, as well as the rehearsal space and guidance necessary to take chances, refine their craft and expand their horizons.
We offer a rare opportunity to follow a work and engage its creators from the early stages through to full productions. The Open Studio Series begins a shared journey through the creative process. The audience engages with the artists as they open the doors to their rehearsal practice.
This journey continues with the Works-in Progress Series in January. These evenings are designed to offer both artists and audience the opportunity to exchange their impressions of the work. After the artists show their excerpts, they return to the stage for a moderated discussion that delves into their intentions and inspirations, and the audience’s perception.
The journey culminates in the Spring performances where each AIR shares an evening length work.
