Harbourfront Centre is currently seeking proposals from Toronto-area artists and companies for the 10th anniversary season of the performing arts residency series HATCH, guest curated by HATCH alumni Michael Wheeler and Aislinn Rose of Praxis Theatre.

Deadline: July 12, 2013

HATCH is designed to incubate and foster invention and innovation in performance practice and over the past decade has become a vital laboratory for development within the local performance ecology.
We invite projects from emerging creators as well as established artists engaging in new collaborations or entering into new artistic territory. Performance proposals from artists working across all disciplines, including, but not limited to:
dance, theatre, performance art, music, digital art, etc.
are encouraged. Of specific interest are proposals that demonstrate how HATCH will benefit the development of the project and the artist. In addition to providing mentorship over the course of a year, HATCH enables the concentrated experimentation and incubation of an idea that culminates in a public presentation, recognizing how vital audience feedback is to the creative process.

Companies and artists selected to participate in HATCH will receive a one-week residency in the Studio Theatre, located at Harbourfront Centre. The Studio Theatre is an intimate, 192-seat proscenium venue featuring a full lighting grid, raked seating and sprung stage floor. Use of the residency period is at the discretion of the artist and needs of the project (i.e. workshop, rehearsals, performance, etc.) but there must be at least one presentation of the work for the public at some point in the week.

For HATCH 2014, our guest curators are particularly interested in projects that experiment with how social media can be used artistically in creation and performance.
