A residency at the barn at lee consists of 7-10 consecutive days on the property with access to private living quarters and a studio space in our signature Barn.
Resident artists are invited to live and work according to the specific needs of their process and schedule, with as much or as little feedback from our onsite artistic staff as they would like. Depending on the needs of each artist, the residency can culminate in a public showing of their work in progress, though some artists embarking on a more nascent endeavor can certainly decide to hold off the sharing of their work.
Currently, all the Barn's residents are invited personally by the artistic staff. A resident artist can work solo for the duration of the residency if they choose, or they may invite up to 3 collaborators to work with them for some portion of the residency.
The Barn is open to many different mediums of performance-based work and encourage formal experiment across disciplines. Whether you’re a playwright working on music for a performance, or a choreographer working to incorporate text into their dance work, we’re proud to support artists as they try new things and approach their practice from unique points of entry.
Residency applications will open in early 2024.
