is a collaborative residency, which aims to elevate as well as educate the interdisciplinary performance art field of south Florida. It offers a much needed experimental program platform for an underserved art field, through an original residency opportunity. Collaborating artist teams will consist of a visual artist and a performing artist, applying together with a project proposal.
The residency is hosted by FATVillage Projects (the 517 Warehouse), giving selected artists space to work, time for research and a platform for exhibiting and performance opportunities.
