New London Little Theatre invites place-based performance artists who are residents or returning residents of the State of Minnesota to apply to New London’s inaugural Small Stages Artist Residency. This program is an opportunity for one performance artist to develop, expand or adapt their practice in place-based performance-making to interactive art experiences, or performance installations designed for small audiences ( 1 to 12). We hope this program will create new approaches for how our citizens engage with each other and with shared spaces, especially in this time of isolation, divisiveness an uncertainty. Applications for this 4-week residency in August 2021 are due at 4:59 p.m. CST on Sunday, April 11, 2021.
