Trajectory RESIDENCY

Tantrum’s Trajectory RESIDENCY is an annual program that provides a selected emerging artist or group with space, mentoring and administrative and technical support to undertake the creative development of a new performance work here in Newcastle. The Trajectory RESIDENCY is the perfect opportunity to test and refine ideas, seek feedback and engage in the rigorous process of developing a new work, all with the support of Newcastle’s leading professional youth arts organisation.

In 2018 Tantrum will offer one residency as part of the Trajectory program, and will show their work at Crack Theatre Festival. Residency Artists are selected based on a written application form.

Applications open: February 2018
Residency dates: Between April - September 2018 (in negotiation with the selected artist).
Cost: FREE for selected resident.
Venue: Tantrum Studio, with showing at Crack Theatre Festival.

Past residency artists include: Ethan Andrews, Stephanie Rochet, Alex Travers, and Allison Van Gaal

Ethan AndrewsThe residency - through working with an established mentor - allowed me to approach my work with a maturity that would have taken me years of independent performing to discover. It has also legitimised my work, and pushed me to create with an urgency that I would not have summoned on my own.

 Alex Travers - Tantrum's Residency has allowed me to recognise that the process of creating work is a career decision rather than just a 'hobby' and has encouraged me to take ownership of my work. It has also provided further clarification in regards to the style of theatre that I make and how this can be marketed and brought to fruition in the future. It has also provided a networking opportunity within the local arts community and allowed me to make connections with artists who I wish to work with in the future.
