Residency Statement 

Technique and craft are elements necessary for construction of fine poems, but music and soul are also crucial to the realization of poetry.  I see this residency and workshop as a place to explore the how and why of poetry, to move beyond the most obvious toward a mysterious and meaningful sense of craft through discussion and writing. And maybe while we’re at it we’ll try song making directly or try performing with music.

Application Requirements

Applicants should send 10 pages of poetry, resume and letter of intent.  In the letter of intent, applicants should list their favorite three poems by poets who changed their way of knowing the world and say something about why these poets/poems matter. And something about where they came from and how it shaped their sense of poetry. (.doc, .docx, .pdf)
 

  1. a brief personal bio (.doc, .docx, .pdf)
  2. a CV (.doc, .docx, .pdf)
  3. a short statement about how you may want to utilize the three weeks of the residency
  4. not more than 15 images of current work (.jpg or .pdf, no more than 10 mb each)

 Please include a link to your website if you have one.

Residency Statement

  “A good artist lets his intuition lead him wherever it wants” – Lao Tsu

Intuition, inspiration and inner vision are fundamental and abundant sources not only for creating art but also in knowing ourselves.  But we often overlook or dismiss these impulses as we pass through this fast-moving world.  Together we will seek to identify and explore the creative impulses that lie within each of us for use in our personal and creative endeavors.

I want to know what inspires you, what your dreams and concerns are —what ideas you have for current and future projects.  How can you create even more room for inspiration and intuition in your creative process?  I look forward to working with you and sharing my creative thought process with you.

Come with an open mind, enjoy the environment and genuinely connect with yourself and others.  Through self-reflection, research and engaging with others in the environment, we will begin developing new creative ideas and works from multiple genres including writing, drawing, painting, photography, media, installation, and performance.  My program is open to all levels in all disciplines.

I anticipate that a renewed and revitalized awareness of what inspires you will arise from our interactions and that this will lead us to apply our passion and vision for art in ways that we have never imagined. Success is a journey, not a destination.  Art is a life-long Process.

Application Requirements


  1. a letter of intent (includes motivation, interests, topics and concerns to      be considered during residency and expectation)
  2. a brief narrative personal bio
  3. CV (maximum 3 pages)
  4. 20 images of work with list (jpg or pdf, less than 2 mb each) and/ or a link      to a short video. As well as a link to a website if you have one.

Master Artist Statement


This is a time for a deep dive into making live performance work within a brain trust. We will use each other for inspiration, energy, goodwill and serious feedback. Choreographers should come to the workshop with a study they want to expand into a "finished" piece. We will give ourselves the construct of a deadline, using the last day of the workshop for final showings and feedback. The residency will be comprised of time for rehearsals, showings, group responses, and private meetings with me.

Artists interested in using the body and live performance as a primary expressive tool are welcome to join. This includes choreographers, but also theater artists who use text and movement, writer/dancers, director/movers, video-artists who move, etc., etc., etc. This is the time to experiment with form. No technical expertise necessary, but instead a passion to express the world through the physical body and to discover new forms.  


Application Requirements:
 

Your materials may be submitted in any of the following file formats; mp3, .doc, .docx, .pdf). Please, no more than 5 mb per file.

To be considered, please include the following items…
 

1. a short statement of purpose (letter of intent)
 

2. a resume
 

3. a short statement addressing, “What is your performance lineage? Where do you come from?” This family tree can be experiential from reading and watching work, or your actual training, or some of both, depending on how you regard your roots.

4. video link(s) that include two finished pieces that you have created out of school
