Residencies September 29, 2021 Performing Arts Creation Lab Spring 2022 | In-Person Creation Lab residencies are designed for performing artists and companies worldwide to develop their new work in one or more Banff Centre studio spaces on the land of Sacred Buffalo Guardian Mountain. Creation Lab is a partnered initiative of Performing Arts and Indigenous Arts at Banff Centre. The focus of these self-directed residencies is to offer contemplative and creative exploration in performance spaces. This can include experimentation with choreography, improvisations and sight specific areas. Collaborations with Indigenous artists outside of similar accessibility will also be considered. In a collegial campus atmosphere of like-minded artists working in and across a range of disciplines, artists are encouraged this season to propose self-sufficient projects that require no in-studio technical labour or equipment support from Banff Centre staff beyond essential room set-up. Companies are encouraged to travel with all personnel required to handle the work. A limited number of on-stage technical residencies with local crew support are available. We are offering the following programs concurrently: Indigenous Arts Creation Lab – Spring 2022, in-person Performing Arts Creation Lab – Spring 2022, in-person What Does The Program Offer? As a post-secondary learning environment, Banff Centre offers artists a generous, retreat-style space to experiment and take risk with new work in development. Artists can choose to take advantage of feedback from other members of the community on campus, or shut out distraction and create in solitude. All phases of work in progress are welcome, and there is no expected output from the residency. Banff Centre provides limited production support for these residencies. Additional technical support may be negotiated when possible. Covid-19 protocols are expected to evolve throughout the season. Who Should Apply? We accept project proposals from individual artists, artistic collectives, and companies of all sizes and at all stages of career. Artists with projects that are at various stages of development are encouraged to apply—whether at the conceptual, creation, development, refinement, or redevelopment stage of a new work We invite applications from Indigenous performing artists and arts companies (regionally, nationally, and globally), from a variety of disciplines. This may include Indigenous dancers, theatre makers, circus and clowns, provocateurs, disrupters, advocates pushing the boundaries of their artistic practice, experienced artists, Indigenous artists that serve their community and their collaborators in all performing arts disciplines. Shorter residencies may be available. Please inquire for details. Please Note: International participants are welcome to apply to on-campus programs that start after January 1, 2022.
