From our previous resident artists:

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.
