At the TPL, artist residencies are an integral part of our artistic process, of our overall development and important in creating links with the community. We have two types of residencies
- External creative residencies
- Internal residencies for up-and-coming theatre artists
EXTERNAL CREATIVE RESIDENCIES
TPL’s artistic residencies aim to set up dialogue between artists and the community. In order for this dialogue to happen, we have to work together, setting up new partnerships, and targeting the issues or parts of the community in which we have a mutual interest. Then comes the building of bridges that allow us to meet, to talk, to tell each other our stories, and to create together.
INTERNAL RESIDENCIES FOR UP AND COMING ARTISTS: “The Meeting That Transforms”
An Internal residency is a service that a theatre company offers artists to help them evolve and develop their craft within the theatre, and during the residency the company is itself also changed in turn.
