COLLIDER is a new, project-centered incubator that provides key opportunities for experimental artists through mentorship, access to studio space, a commissioning fee of $5,000 as well as presentation opportunities in T/R and Company 605’s annual PushOFF platform. Artists are invited to dream up and begin to activate works engaged in a global conversation of art-making, and whose processes embrace experimental and interdisciplinary practices. Excerpts of the works are then highlighted at PushOFF in both in-development and tour-ready formats, in subsequent years.
The COLLIDER residency was born out of an opportunity we recognized around PushOFF, to foster the practices of artists in our home community who are interested in, and whose works speak to, international markets. We want to make a tangible difference to artists and artistic practice in Vancouver. As one of Canada’s most consistent touring companies, T/R has experienced first-hand what working in international contexts can do for the development of artists and their work. We want to create space for artists to push against the more dominant forms of performance-making and test the boundaries of theatrical form and performance. This is not only a reflection of Theatre Replacement’s own artistic interests, but a direct result of the work that has evolved out of Vancouver.
The residency is open to all performance-based artists. Selection is made through PushOFF curators. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
COLLIDER is supported by the Province of British Columbia and the Canada Council for the Arts.
