THE DEADLINE TO APPLY FOR THE 2015-16 RESIDENT ARTIST PROGRAM IS SEPTEMBER 28, 2015.
Mabou Mines/Suite, established in 1991, is the company’s resident artist program, a laboratory for experiments with performance ideas developed with the particular needs of emerging artists in mind. Once emerging artists ourselves, we understand the formidable pressures upon early career artists and how difficult it is to find a non-academic setting in which to explore new ideas, We believe that process-focused development is the best way to create original work and that the opportunity to work this way can prove crucial to an artist’s career. Mabou Mines’ artistic directors see it as our privilege and responsibility to guide new artists along the path we have found so rewarding.
Mabou Mines/Suite is open to small companies and individual artists in all fields – playwrights, directors, performers, poets, dancers, acrobats, dramaturgs, composers, painters, sculptors, photographers, singers, choreographers, film & video artists, digital & computer artists – anyone with compelling performance ideas in need of investigation.
In the past, all resident artists have received mentoring, rehearsal space and a stipend. A public showing of the work is presented at the conclusion of the residency. 2015-2016 PROGRAM - CONTINGENT UPON FUNDING.
