Two year residency at PACT for three independent companies.

In 2018 we are launching atPACT, a 2 year residency for independent companies. PACT is looking for three innovative, emerging companies to make our warehouse space their home in 2018 and 2019.

atPACT is for companies exploring new ideas, new performance platforms and new forms of audience engagement.

This exciting opportunity is open to independent companies working across theatre, dance, live art and interdisciplinary performance. Companies must have been established within the past ten years and must not be in receipt of operational funding from local, state or federal government bodies. Companies must commit to a two-year residency, pay a nominal yearly hire fee and be able to produce at least one public presentation season per year.

EOI’s for atPACT are now open to independent, unfunded companies in their first ten years of existence. There are three residencies available in 2018/19.

Further information including terms and conditons are available via downloadable PDF.

To apply, fill out the form below and return to Danielle Taylor by 5pm 11 August 2017. Late applications will not be accepted.
