2021 Muckenthaler Cultural Center Artist-in-Residence Application Information

The Muckenthaler Center is currently accepting applications for their Artist-in-Residence for 2021.  Artists of any and all disciplines and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.  Special consideration is given to artists who live and/or work in Orange County, California

To apply send an email to AIR@TheMuck.org containing the following information:  

  • A brief history of the artist's career.  It is not essential to have a long prestigious resume. Both well-established and emerging artists are eligible. But it is vital that we know who you are.
  • A detailed description of how you would spend your residency year including: 
    • What artistic projects you would like to create and how it fits our mission statement.
    • How you would integrate into existing Muck programming (Yes, that will require a bit of research) 
    • Why would your residency benefit you, The Muck, and the Community?

Our two most recent Artists in Residence have been:

2019 Lara Wilson - Choreographer and Leader of The Assembly.  Lara and her group spent all of 2019 choreographing and workshopping on our stage, a world premiere dance piece reflecting a new view of women in society.  Her residency included rehearsals and workshops open to the public, and culminated in a public performance on our main stage.

2020 Katharine Zaun - Poet and Educator.  Katharine has used her residency year to create a series of classes and workshops for our community.  She also contributes a monthly poem that gets distributed to 60,000 people through our outreach.  Her residency culminated in a community-based found poetry project mural that has been featured in the OC Register and the LA Times.

One last word of encouragement.  We don't care if you're a muralist who only paints miniatures, or a punk-rock theremin player, or a puppet show documentarian.  We are searching for ingenuity, dedication, and the ability to integrate into our culture.

BLIGHT

Share

Country:

City:

Theatre Nova in Ann Arbor will present R.D. Wakeman's play Blight in a staged reading Sunday 27th October 2019. Blight is set in a mansion in an absurdist dystopian world where people and belongings are disappearing from the house and from memory. Food is sparse, there's some sort of blight, pills are prescribed by those in power, a strange circus has come to town, and spies are everywhere. No-one seems too concerned except Nanny but she won't find her way out unless she actually looks for one.

There will be audience feedback following the reading. Thanks to all those involved & to Theatre Nova for including Blight in it's Michigan Playwrights Festival 2019.
