LinkUP Residencies

LinkUPis Links Hall’s six month residency program supporting Chicago based independent artists and colleboratives in the research, development and presentation of new innovative work in movement based arts.

Residents receive up to 10 hours of studio time per week, a modest stipend, a paid mentorship, a works in progress showing, theopportunity to participate in the Art of Rehearsal workshop seriesto assist in the process and presentation of their work throughout the residency, and an end of residency showcase weekend.

The Art of Rehearsal

In addition to dedicated mentorship provided by the LinkUP residency Links Hall also offers resident artists support through the final stages of rehearsal prior to performance. This portion of the program, called the Art of Rehearsal, is structured to help artists deepen their LinkUp residency experience and the resultant work by building time into the creation process to hone, refine and edit a new work before it is presented to audiences. During the course of the residency Bryan Saner and Ginger Farley lead two workshops for residency artists and their performers in methods of rehearsing. Additionally, they will work closely in rehearsal with the creators, cast and mentors in the weeks leading up to public presentation.

The application for LinkUPresidencies is currently CLOSED.
