We are looking for five artists who have demonstrated a serious commitment to their artistic practice and an interest in the TMT’s principles, and are ready to move in a radical new direction. Fellows should be poised to embrace the open-ended questioning that guides the Institute.
Applicants may emerge from any theatrical discipline (actors, designers, writers, directors, producers, stage managers, administrators, etc.). We will also accept applications from other artistic elds (music, visual art, literature, etc.) as long as the connection to performance is clearly articulated.
APPLICANTS SHOULD HAVE SUBSTANTIAL PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE OR AN ADVANCED DEGREE.
The Institute is a substantial time commitment and given the Institute’s unstructured nature, Fellows must be energetic and motivated to initiate and shape their work. The Institute is for artists who have already established a serious professional practice and are now looking to extend, disrupt, and transform it.
