Advanced Women’s Residency Program
This year we launched the Advanced Women’s Residency an innovative new program that develops new works by and about women in the second half of their lives. A 10 week pilot began in January 2019 lead by our Artistic Director Katherine Murphy Lewis. Over the course of the 10 weeks residents Marty Zermer-Honig and Katheryn Shamrell trained with guest artists, attended a series of local performances and were supported in the development of long form monologues that were shared with an invited audience at the end of the 10 weeks. We have now retuned to the studio for the month of October to expand on their original works. Since this program is is still in a incubation stage we are discovering as we go and creating a formate that serves the scope of each story our residents bring to the table. What has developed is a long form residency that gives the time and space needed to create more fully realized works.
**Note the program has been supported by Ronni Lacroute and Lagunitas. If you would like to support this work please contact our Program Director Katherine Murphy Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org OR to go to our donation page CLICK HERE.
MEET THE RESIDENTS:
This program aims to give women in the second half of their life the training and support to develop autobiographical ‘solo’ shows. Given the cultural invisibility of women in the later part of their lives we so rarely get to hear and engage in stories that center around this population. This residency was developed to address this need. It is our aim to support the development and production of these rich and important stories that so rarely make it to the surface.
