Artist Performance Residencies

These Artist Performance Residencies are currently on pause, pending the completion of our 60-Seat Studio Theater. To read more about the construction process, please visit our Growing Community page.

The Artist Performance Residencies empower artists by providing resources they need to more fully produce a reading, scene sharing, or small production. Artists are provided a TBG staff liaison, marketing and ticketing resources, front of house assistance, and the TBG Studio for one or two public performances.

In the Artist Performance Residency program, any NYC theater artists may apply at no charge to rehearse and publicly present their own created work.  TBG staff review and curate selected artists.

We review applications on a rolling basis.  To submit an application, please click the below button.

TBG understands that space rental costs can be a barrier to entry for artists to share their work.  By donating space in this way, TBG seeks to provide access and give actors, directors, and playwrights the opportunity to refine their work while providing audience members a window into the process of developing original theatrical work.
