We are looking for:
1) Emerging artists! The artists do not need to have attended an academic art program but they could be, meaning graduate students, undergraduate students or graduates of MFA or undergraduate programs. We are interested in bringing together a group of diverse thinkers/makers of varied backgrounds. The laboratory is best for artists who already have a practice and/or have demonstrated a commitment to developing a practice.
2) Artists who are curious and willing to collaborate with others, both within and outside of class/workshop time. Performance Intensive is not a residency program in that it is not an isolated, individual space for studio practice and external critique; participants will be taking classes and workshops that may ask them to work together and they are asked to engage actively and intellectually with one another as colleagues and interlocutors.
3) Artists who demonstrate an interest in or are engaged in a practice that crosses disciplinary boundaries: intersections between non-theatrical performance and theatre, for instance, or dance and performance or music and art.
Applications for January 2020 are by invitation.
Applicants may be in or out of an educational program.
Applicants must be able to attend the entire duration of the Performance Intensive, January 5-12th.
Performance Intensive welcomes applications from all artists, of any race, color, religion, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, ancestry, age, veteran status, disability status, genetic information, military service, or other protected status.
