Expression of Interest for Tasmania Performs Artist Residency (11-13 October 2019)

The annual Tasmania Performs artist residency is an opportunity for Tasmanian performing art practitioners, be they writers, choreographers, dancers, directors, actors, theatre makers...... to come together to explore new performance project ideas.

The 3-day, 2-night Tarraleah event is an opportunity to be completely immersed in a creative space and culture with supportive colleagues.

A range of highly skilled mentors from different arts practices across Australia are provided to inform project development. In previous years these have included Maude Davey, Isaac Drandic, Margi Brown Ash, Deborah Pollard, Sue Giles, Peter Matheson, Raimondo Cortese, Julie-Anne Long, Sarah Neal, Van Badham and Stephen Armstrong among others.

The annual Tasmania Performs artist residency is a supportive, creative environment to test ideas, consider new collaborations and explore cross artform possibilities.

Expression of interests will be reviewed by a curatorial panel who will take into consideration the calibre of the artist(s), the idea and a range of other balancing issues including artforms, geography, and experience to ensure the right mix for a vibrant weekend.

Both individuals and groups* (up to 3 members) may apply to attend. *additional group members may be required to pay a higher contribution to attend.

Deadline for completing this EOI survey is 5pm Tuesday 16 July 2019.

Successful applicants will be notified by Friday 26 July 2019.
 

Tips for applicants:
Please follow the word length suggestions.  EOI's with very little detail are difficult to assess and applications that go way over the suggested word length will be cut off before being sent to the selection panel.

If you’re nervous or unsure if the residency is for you or would like advice on your application, please email Associate Producer Julie Waddington info@tasperforms.com and she will call you back to discuss.
