Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg is a Vancouver based dancer, choreographer, director and all around creative person. Right now she can be found completing an artistic residency at The Cultch, working hard on Highgate, a piece that explores Victorian funeral culture. We caught up with Tara to find out a bit more about Highgate and how she feels about completing an artistic residency with us here at The Cultch!
For those of us who don’t know, can you tell us what a residency is?
A residency is when a theatre (or arts centre) invites an artist to create in their space for a concentrated amount of time. The theatre supports the artist and the work in progress by providing space, technical, and administrative support. For the artist, a residency is a great opportunity to really focus on a creation without distraction.
