Artist Residencies at the cultch
Our mission for cultivating a wide and diverse community of artists
“We are beyond thrilled to be embraced by The Cultch, one of the greatest performing arts voices in our community. The opportunity to have a space we can call home while we master this crazy beast of a show is gigantic to us!” -Tara Travis and Monster Theatre (Who Killed Gertrude Crump)
“During our residency at The Cultch we will be working with Sean Harris Oliver (the playwright) to develop the text of the play through readings and physical exploration with the actors.We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to workshop elements of our production at The Cultch this summer.” -Evan Frayne (Bleeding Heart Theatre Society)
“It is such a valuable opportunity to work in the performance space and in a building that holds so much history, and such a spirit of creation and experimentation. The Cultch is an art heartbeat.” -Tara Cheyenne (Tara Cheyenne Performance)
"For Empire of the Son, Tetsuro and I worked our experiments in my basement which was the size of a closet...so being able to spread our wings and play in a space ten times the size we are used to, is amazing. We thank The Cultch for this generous opportunity to create another knock your socks off show." -Donna Yamamoto (Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre)
“I want to express my tremendous gratitude for the residency - Anton (the composer/lyricist) and I achieved things over five days on that stage that we've been trying to do for two years. It was really miraculous and the readthrough/sing through on Friday really proved that this is going to be a magical show for all of us." -Dave Deveau (Playwright in Residence & Associate Producer at Zee Zee Theatre on developing their show Elbow Room Cafe: The Musical)
