Got an urgent idea that you don’t know where to take next?
Artists of all performance disciplines from across the Northern Territory and the South West region of WA will soon have the opportunity to explore new project ideas as part of our new regional residency program.
We have partnered with Brown’s Mart Theatre in Darwin, and the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre (BREC) to develop two distinct three-day intensives for emerging and mid-career artists.
Based on the hugely successful Tasmania Performs Artist Residency model, the residency is an opportunity for artists working in live performance including writers, choreographers, dancers, directors, actors and designers, to receive support and guidance from experienced industry mentors in the exploration a new project idea.
The model is well-tested and has so far created a focal point for 112 artists in Tasmania. Its pakana stream has now supported another 10 First Nations artists. This has created a critical mass and visibility not only within the community but beyond it. We can’t wait to have a similar impact in Darwin and South-West WA.
