Nightwood Theatre and Tapestry Opera have banded together to offer 3-day Studio Residencies for artists and artist collectives in the Ernest Balmer Studio in the Historic Distillery District. We will be offering 8 fully subsidized three-day studio residency opportunities for artists and artist collectives with projects or initiatives that are in-line with Nightwood Theatre and/or Tapestry Opera’s mandates. Please note the maximum total number of individuals allowed in the space – excluding the technician – is 2. 

Residency includes 1 hour contribution of Michael Mori and/or Andrea Donaldson’s consultation (if desired). 

The space is set up for social distanced rehearsal processes or for live streaming or recording sessions, and each subsidized studio rental will include a 4-hour session with our technician if desired within the third day of your residency. 

SUBMISSION DEADLINES: OCTOBER 21, 2020 2:00 PM ET and FEBRUARY 4, 2020 5:00 PM ET.
