The Performing Arts Technical Residency Program aims to support the development of artistic creations within the genres of dance, theatre, circus and inter-disciplinary work, with the intent to potentially present final works once they are fully realized.
In response to feedback received from the performing arts community, while building on the legacy of HATCH and other Harbourfront Centre residencies such as the Craft & Design Artists-in-Residence, the Performing Arts Technical Residency Program will occur throughout the year, and in selected Harbourfront Centre venues, pending availability.
The residencies are technical in format. They provide production support in a theatre venue at a stage of development of a project when working in such a venue is beneficial to the process. It is intended for projects that have already gone through at least a first phase of creation and are on their way to production and presentation. Residencies are typically one week long, though consideration will be given to longer requests based on the needs of the project.
All residencies will receive the venue at no charge. Some residencies will receive further financial support – download the Program Overview for more information.
