Hello! Thank you for your interest in applying to The Drama League's IMPACT RESIDENCY. This residency is exclusively for directors who work as part of an ensemble company that create performance-based work (theatre, performance art, etc.) using a devised methodology.
The residency gives the director and her/his/their collaborators the time, space, and resources to create a new devised work. A partnership with the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center (LPAC) in Queens, the residency offers:
REHEARSAL SPACE: Up to 120 hours of rehearsal and up to 30 hours of tech time at LPAC.
WORKSHOP STIPEND: The director will receive $10,000, which can be used to cover workshop expenses.
PROFESSIONAL MENTORSHIP: The artist will receive periodic mentorship from LPAC and Drama League artistic staff.
WORK-IN-PROGRESS SHOWINGS: The work will receive full tech work-in-progress showing at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center to conclude the residency. There is also the possibility of staging the premiere of the work at LPAC.
