SPACE on Ryder Farm Creative Residency

PHONE: (646) 833-8159  TWITTER: @SPACEonRyder
ADDRESS: 406 Starr Ridge Rd, Brewster, NY 10509

DESCRIPTION: The eight Working Farm writers are in residence together twice over the course of the season (May 28th-June 2nd and September 17th-22nd). During their additional stays, Working Farm writers may invite a collaborator (e.g. a director, designer, dramaturg, actor) to join them on the farm, subject to availability.

During their time on the farm, The Working Farm writers are housed in Ryder Farm’s historic buildings, served three daily farm-fresh communal meals and provided with artistic and administrative resources. While in residence, the artists each focus on developing a single new work and are strongly encouraged to structure their days and weeks to best suit the needs of their project.

While at SPACE, the only requirements of The Working Farm are that they join in the three communal meals daily, give back 6 hours of their time-in-residence to Ryder Farm and participate in short, informal sharings of the work accomplished while in residence.

One of the highlights of The Working Farm is The Roving Dinner, which occurs during the group’s September residency week. During this celebration of The Working Farm writers, excerpts of the eight SPACE-developed works are paired with an eight-course farm-fresh meal and performed at eight historic locations around Ryder Farm.

Following the five-week residency at Ryder Farm, Working Farm members are offered the opportunity to present a public reading of their SPACE-developed project through SPACE’s partnership with Playwrights Horizons. These readings customarily take place in the winter or early spring.
