Neverthere (www.nevertherefestival.com) and Surge are inviting applications for an online residency designed to give space for established artists to develop new ideas in the company of skilled practitioners. Participants will have the opportunity to develop new ideas concentrating on the integration of digital technologies and performance – particularly projects that can take place online. This two-day residency will involve input from professional, highly experienced mentors from a variety of performance and digital backgrounds including Alan Richardson, Elise Davison, Paul Long, Bevis Evans-Teusch, Evan Raskob, Jessica Symons, Justin Berry, Neill Ritchie, Ross Gerry, Ryan Scott and Simon Meek.
We are welcoming applications from collaborations between performance makers and digital artists, we are also happy to receive applications from individual artists. Applications from digital designers, games designers, coders, theatre makers, designers, performers, and those working in other digital forms are also most welcome.
Thanks to support from Taking Flight and the Arts Council of Wales, this residency will be BSL interpreted and captioned where possible. This residency is made possible by support from Creative Scotland.
