The BASE Residency intends to engage 5 early-career dance and performance BIPOC & QTBIPOC teaching artists in artistic and pedagogical activities that empower them to engage with their community at large, lead performance workshops, and ultimately create a final performance. We intend to accomplish this by providing space and marketing, along with awarding a $2000 stipend per resident to be used for residency, workshop, and production needs. During the BASE residency, Artists should plan on doing the following:
-Presenting an original work developed during the residency in a low-tech group performance.
-Developing and investigating research, pedagogical, and performance practices associated with their specific cultures, rituals, or traditions thereby creating an investment in dismantling whiteness in dance, movement, & training.
-Presenting materials for a community audition for dancers and teaching 8 performance-style workshops
