The studio I work with, hub14 art & performance works has released their call for residency proposals.
This call is suitable for anyone with a performance practice, emerging to established. The residencies range from research-based explorations (you pitch a compelling idea with a thoughtful plan & could receive up to 40 hours in studio to explore it without any demand of a final product from us), to three-day gallery pop-up installations (usually geared towards a visual artist working with performance or performers working with visual/installation art), community initiatives (discussions, classes/workshops, performance series, etc.) & even a live-in for artists outside the GTA.
The studio is based in Toronto, just around the corner from the Queen West & Bathurst intersection (very close to Theatre Passe Muraille, Factory Theatre, Rapier Wit & lemontree creations).
It’s one of the only programmes of its kind in Toronto and one of my favourite things to be part of each year. Seeing what you’re working on, hearing your voices, your passions, your ways of expression is a privilege I am humbled to experience.
That said, the hub14 team wants to support you & your art!
Applications are due July 6th @ 11:59pm. So get on that!
Check out the call here.

episode 02 // [elephants] collective
a conversation about A Kitchen Sink Drama
with Ximena Huizi, Thomas McKechnie, Krystina Bojanowski and Michael Reinhart
Feb. 11th, 2016
Merchants of Green Coffee
What was originally planned as a meeting with Thomas became, as schedules go, an invitation to watch a rehearsal. It was great to peek in on an [elephants] rehearsal from the outside and see an entirely different process than the one I experienced during A Wake for Lost Time. These cats really love questioning theatre’s role in today’s society.
A Kitchen Sink Drama plays during Week One (Feb. 17th – 20th) of the 37th Rhubarb Festival @ buddies in bad times. Click the banner below to take you to Rhubarb’s site.
