La Mama Residencies

La Mama Residencies offer theatre-makers, playwrights, directors, cross disciplinary artists, and other creatives the essential time required to develop practice in a focused and framed context. Based at the La Mama Courthouse, our residency program, whilst open to all, is designed to maximise opportunities at La Mama for regional, interstate and international artists. This is essential to build our artist network, to ensure La Mama is as open and accessible as possible and to offer ways to introduce interstate/ regional and international artists to our local artist community and visa-versa.

The program offers artists up to two weeks in the space, keys to the venue (in the usual La Mama fashion) and freedom to come and go as required. Artists aren’t required to deliver a formal outcome in exchange for the residency, however should they wish to present findings or a showing at the end of their time it would be welcome. Through partnerships with regional, interstate and international companies and collectives, the La Mama Residencies program will strive to secure additional financial support for travel and accommodation, but in the instance this doesn’t come to fruition, the space will remain available and through years of discussions with regional and interstate groups, we trust this would remain an attractive offering.
