The Cathedral’s fresh Dance and Theatre programme is providing residency space to emerging and professional artists wanting to develop their practice. The goal is to nurture a culturally diverse selection of artists interested in producing bold new works, specifically tackling ongoing sociopolitical issues.
Art form: Dance, Theatre, Physical/Dance Theatre, Experimental Arts
Length of Residency: 1 month
The residency will take place in the Cathedral’s Burt Memorial Hall which includes a large space perfect for innovative performers. We’re offering access to invaluable resources such as a promotional platform, an arts practice provocateur, and a platform to show off the products of your time as a resident.
Residents may practice their artistic discipline and develop their creative techniques for the duration of their residency. The diversity of artists in residence at any one time allows for rich artistic conversations and potential for collaborations. We have a vast network of contacts both Perth-based and international, and are able to assist artists in expanding their networks. Artists are also able to organise their own open studio in coordination with us.
The Burt Memorial Hall is used for a variety of Cathedral and diocesan functions, receptions, workshops, educational visits and exhibitions. The building includes a large studio, as well as a kitchen and bathrooms. Space may be booked from 9.00am to 5.00pm on weekdays or from 9.00am to 4.00pm on Saturdays, subject to availability, in coordination with St George’s Dance and Theatre.
Any other special requirements may be granted and should be discussed with Jay Emmanuel, Artistic Director of the St George’s Dance and Theatre programme.
