2019 Black Spatial Relics Residency (Philadelphia)
The 2019 Black Spatial Relics (BSR) Residency will support the development of two new performance works that address and incorporate the public histories of slavery and contemporary issues of justice. The artists-in-residence should pay particular attention to land -based histories of both the slave trade and its legacies on the Eastern seaboard of the United States as well as histories of chattel slavery, fugitivity and liberation. Applicants are invited to apply with performance projects that may traverse or engage dance, theatre, performance installation and/or ritual, spoken word, music/sound and or any multidisciplinary constellation of the aforementioned. Artists with both new and developing performance projects are welcome to apply.
