Jul 31st 2019

Be among the first invited guests to learn about Arts + Public Life’s new Performance Residency Program scheduled to launch Fall 2019 and early 2020.

Residency information session led by Pemon Rami and Joyy Norris, Arts + Public Life Theatre and Performance Program Manager. Information session provides detailed overview of the new residency tracks:

Track One – Designed for companies: theatre ensembles and performance collectives

Track Two – Designed for directors: individuals with experience and strong desire for a career in theatre directing

Guests will also have the opportunity to tour Green Line Performing Arts Center. The new Performance Residency Program is intended to workshop and develop small scale productions. Residency applicants should have a demonstrated history of rooting their practice in community engagement. Arts + Public Life (APL) visual and performing arts residencies are typified by active immersion in public-facing aspects of APL. Through the duration of all APL residencies, artists/companies/directors are often present leading public readings, workshops, programs, artists talks and master classes at no cost to the public.

Preference is given to artistic practices that:
– Examine themes relevant to South Side communities both on and off University of Chicago’s Hyde Park campus
– Encourage open, ongoing, and active community participation
– Explore dimensions of ethnicity and race–expansive cultural implications and routine individual experiences
– Privilege research methodologies as an integral part of the creative process
– Deepen understandings of race, class, gender, and sexuality, as well as their interconnections and implications

As Arts + Public Life continues to support performance-based artistic practices on Chicago’s South Side, we are excited for you to learn more about this new opportunity and hope that you can attend the information session. If you are unable to attend, but would like to get additional program details as they become available, please email Joyy Norris, joyy@uchicago.edu.
