Artist-in-Residence Programs

Our Artist-in-Residence Programs are intensive, hands-on workshops that introduce participants to Arm-of-the-Sea’s distinctive style of making theater. The programs seek to provide experiences of collaborative creativity.Each residency is organized around a particular theme drawn from art, history, science, literature or social studies. Under the direction of teaching artist Patrick Wadden and other AotS staff, participants work with painting, sculpture, mask-making, puppetry, creative writing and music to create the parts of a show. The “artifacts” produced in the residency are combined in rehearsals with characters from Arm-of-the-Sea’s repertoire. The culminating one-of-a-kind performance event is presented to the entire school or community.Residency programs are generally 5 to 15 days in length and can involve anywhere from 15 to 75 participants. Requirements include a designated workspace where our equipment and materials can remain set-up. Good planning is essential. .In a school setting, our residency programs are effective not only with high achievers but often & most notably with students lagging in academic and language skills. We have conducted very successful residencies with young people from inner city schools, immigrant families, adjudicated institutions and the hearing-impaired.
