The Studio 210 Summer Residency
Short and Sweet Headlines are Best!
Winter 2021 Virtual Residency Applications Due October 16th
The Studio 210 Residency was founded by DSDT in 2012 as a vehicle for artists to hone their skills, experiment, and dive in to making performance, emphasizing the artists’ process rather than product. This residency is a unique opportunity for experienced & emerging artists to work in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District and receive professional feedback from award-winning choreographer Deborah Slater. Resident Artists spend two months in intensive rehearsals, working in dialogue with one another and Slater, culminating in two performances of the works-in-progress and an in-depth post-show audience/artist conversation.
Applications are now open for the Winter 2021 Virtual Residency!
Deadline to submit: Friday, October 16th, 2020
