Hubbard Hall joins with Brooklyn venue
to create new artist residency program

 

CAMBRIDGE, N.Y.
Hubbard Hall and The Bushwick Starr have announced a new Artist Residency program at Hubbard Hall for artists and projects to be produced at The Bushwick Starr in Brooklyn.
In support of scheduled new work and through a rigorous application process, the first three residencies have been accepted and scheduled for Hubbard Hall in December and March, in support of the shows “The Conversationalists,” “SKINFoLK” and “Preparedness,” all of which will be produced in Brooklyn at The Bushwick Starr in the late winter and spring of 2020.


“This is an extraordinary next step in Hubbard Hall’s ability to serve wonderful artists and incubate great new work through artist residencies, while enhancing our audience’s experience by exposing them to these exciting, cutting-edge artists from the city,” said David Snider, Hubbard Hall’s executive and artistic director.


Hubbard Hall/Bushwick Starr Residencies will support the exploration and development of new and emerging work, with a focus on work and artists producing and performing at The Bushwick Starr in the coming season and beyond. The residencies will occur in Cambridge at Hubbard Hall’s campus with visiting companies, artists and ensembles.
Focusing on the development of new and devised work, this residency series will invite artists to develop new work in beautiful, quiet and artistically rich surroundings far from the constraints and pressure of the city -- and then to share portions of that work with local audiences via a final showcase sharing. This could take the form of a reading, workshop performance or simply demonstration/discussion, depending on the project, artistic process and artists’ comfort.


The series also will allow audiences to explore and learn about the development process. It aims to support the development of local, regional and national artists, seeking to further develop the local talent pool through exposure to visiting artists.


Typical residencies include honoraria for all participating artists and housing. Artists are responsible for their own travel costs. Residencies can last anywhere from two-three days to two-three weeks.


For the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons, Hubbard Hall/Bushwick Starr residencies will focus on supporting the development of work already scheduled for production in The Bushwick Starr seasons.
