Artist in Working Residence Programme in Theatre and Performance

School of Arts and New Media
University of Hull @ Scarborough

About Us:
The School of Arts and New Media, University of Hull @ Scarborough is 
home to an innovative team of subject specialists working together to 
offer a range of degree courses in the following subject areas: Creative 
Music Technology, Digital Media, English, Theatre and Performance and a 
range of Interdisciplinary degrees. The programmes offered in the school 
are designed to prepare students to engage with contemporary art and 
media in the world today. Studying in SANM offers artistic and 
intellectual skills and experience that enable students to work in 
cultural and new media industries. See: 

Following two successful residencies by Proto-type Theatre in 2009-10, 
and Reckless Sleepers in 2010-11 (the outcome of the second residency is 
currently showing at Flare International Festival in Manchester), the School
of Arts and New Media, University of Hull @ Scarborough seeks to 
commission a professional facilitator and/or performance artist(s) to 
make one or a series of new performances working with Year 3 students of 
our BA in
Theatre and Performance and the BA in Media Performance. We are looking 
for an experienced contemporary performance practitioner or company, 
with a strong body of innovative work. Some experience of facilitating 
workshops is
required. Experience of teaching /facilitating workshops within HE is 

We envisage this as a two-week working residency, which should result to 
performance work(s) of professional (or near-professional) quality. The 
performance outcome(s) will be presented to the public at the end of 
this residency, as part of Coastival, see http://www.coastival.com/ The 
materials and work methods involved should allow and encourage students 
to undertake a high degree of initiative and responsibility in 
developing the work further after the end of the residency, for touring 
to national or international festivals, as the foundation for individual 
artistic practice or for funding a graduate company.

The residence will be hosted within the University of Hull's Scarborough 
campus. Our facilities include three professional, flexible 
workshop/performance venues of up to 80 capacity, a workshop studio and 
other facilities that can be booked according to requirements. The 
venues are equipped with professional lighting, sound systems, 
computers, wireless broadband and projectors. Other equipment can become 
available if required, upon negotiation. The artist will be supported 
before and throughout the residency by the module coordinator and 
production tutors.
