Overview

Imagine this residency as a hive of inventors, continuously searching for ways to make each other laugh and permuting every facet of reality. Performance artists, dancers, escapees from the theatre, experimental comedians, abstract clowns, and visual artists who have way too much energy for their own good — we invite you to this hive to exaggerate life to its fullest!  

Led by Michael Portnoy and Kira Nova, Behaviour Swarm will explore a series of different modules to continuously fracture your sense of self; behaviour, speech, ideas, your relation to your body, others, objects, and your environment.  We’ll use theatre, dance, and performance techniques to develop your tools for inventiveness, high-level nonsense, slapstick, presence, expressivity, and intuition. Participants will form a company of sorts — a collective organism functioning at times perfectly as a group while growing strength in their own individual work.  

What does the program offer?

This residency offers the opportunity for visual artists to hone their performative skills, receive critical feedback, and grow their performance based practice. The program will be collaborative, but will also provide time and space to develop individual work. Activities will include workshops exploring movement, physical theatre, and improvisational training techniques, as well as riff sessions and performance nights. 

What length of residency is available?

This program is designed for participation over the entire period. Variable dates will not be considered.

Who should apply?

This residency is for visual artists with a focus on performative practices, an exhibition/publication record, who have completed formal training in visual arts at the post-secondary level, or equivalent experience and recognition from their peers. Collaborative groups of no more than two people are welcome to apply.

*Some additional fees may apply.

Dates: June 03 - July 05, 2019
