BATS Studio Residencies

Nau mai! piki mai!

e ngā iwi e,

ngā reo, ngā mana.

Tēnā ra koutou katoa

BATS is pleased to be able to host two residencies in the STUDIO during the second half of 2022!

The residencies will last for a period of 4 weeks.

This is a rare opportunity to be able to work uninterrupted in a rehearsal space and for you to be able to truly test and play with ideas without the pressure of a performance deadline.

There are no boundaries as to what you could do - this could be a hub to hui, a space to move your body or an opportunity to explore digital technologies.

Are you an artist who wants to push the limits of what live art can be!?

We champion live art that enlivens the many, not the few.  We also seek to better understand what value we give and where we can grow our reach to underrepresented communities.

For a closer look at BATS' current mission please see our Strategic Plan.

In 2022, BATS offers a $2000 grant per residency thanks to a PRIVATE DONOR.

We are looking at applicants who:

  • are at any stage of their career
  • are interested in collaboration between multiple artforms

To apply you can fill out this form

Due by June 18, 2022

There is also an option to attach a video at the bottom of the form if you'd prefer.  The quality of your video doesn't matter, we just want to provide an alternative to writing.  If you're doing a video, make sure to tell us WHO is involved, WHAT it is you want to do and WHEN you would ideally want to do it.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with our Programming Team - Alesha ([email protected]) or Carrie ([email protected]).
