This residency seeks to establish new models for the development of queer performance; to draw it out of the club scene and into a more discursive context, and build the profile of this dynamic and important performance culture in Sydney and beyond. Performance Space has a long history of supporting queer practice, and we’re committed to building a community of performers and fostering an intergenerational approach to queer work. This year we’re also pleased to announce a new partnership with PACT Centre for Emerging Artists as our host venue.

Many artists use the residency as an opportunity to ‘show’ research outcomes. This can be to audience-test complex platforms and technological interfaces for public interaction or receive critical feedback from peers, external curators and producers on works in development. Many works developed through the residency program go on to be presented in the seasons.
Provided: rehearsal space and limited in-house resources in terms of personnel and technical equipment.
