Zaccho Dance Theatre’s Black Futures Artist-in-Residence Programis open to diverse voices, emerging and established, called to express the Black experience through an arts practice that inspires dialogue and builds community. Our goal is to support artists at all points of their process and to give them an opportunity to conduct in depth research without the pressure of presenting a completed work by the end of the residency.
All Bay Area Black theater, dance, and interdisciplinary artists, as well as collaborative teams, are eligible to apply with preference given to residents of San Francisco.
Residencies will take place from October 2023 to June 2024. Four residencies will be awarded. Each Black Futures Resident Artist must attend a mandatory orientation at 5:00 PM on October 2nd, participate in a monthly check-in meeting, and is expected to use the Zaccho Studio as part of your residency.
