Time flies. We all know the phrase. A cliche. And yet, there is so much truth inherent in this – that is what makes it a cliche after all. One moment we are young, full of life, and the next, half our life has sped by before our eyes and we are starting to look toward the second act. The same is true on a smaller scale. What we put off today, we are always amazed to discover, sneaks by us in the short term and before long is nothing but a distant memory. The opportunities you say you’ll get to later are the ones you’ll surely miss.
Atlantic Center for the Arts invites artists interested in using the body and live performance as a primary expressive tool to apply for the Annie-B Parson Residency. The Master Artist Statement for this opportunity is as follows:
“This is a time for a deep dive into making live performance work within a brain trust. We will use each other for inspiration, energy, goodwill and serious feedback. Choreographers should come to the workshop with a study they want to expand into a “finished” piece. We will give ourselves the construct of a deadline, using the last day of the workshop for final showings and feedback. The residency will be comprised of time for rehearsals, showings, group responses, and private meetings with me.” -Annie-B Parson
For more information and to apply, visit the website. Deadline for submissions is September 15.
Also at the Atlantic Center for the Arts is the Will Cotton Residency for painters.
