Philadelphia Artists' Collective, a local theatre company.
Part of our mission is that for each of our theatre productions, we partner with a visual artist. Our Artist-In-Residence program is designed to bring artists from separate disciplines together, helping to inspire accessible art, interesting discussion, and enriching collaboration between actors, designers, directors, technicians, and visual artists. In the past, our Artists-In-Residence have partnered with the folks at Broad Street Ministry and conducted community workshops with the homeless and needy; additionally, the work of our AIR's have been incorporated into the scenic design and displayed throughout the space. It is partially a showcase opportunity, and it does come with a stipend.
For our upcoming September production of August Strindberg's Creditors, we are seeking a sculptor to partner with us -- partially because we have only ever worked with painters before, and partly because one of the play's main characters is a sculptor. We are looking to find a sculptor who might be interested! The AIR position is still a new development for us, and we are still playing with what the format might include, but we are hoping to find someone with an adventurous spirit, and an aesthetic that matches the sparse, haunting landscape of the text.
