About the Naked Stages Program

The goal of this program is to assist individual artists in acquiring knowledge and experience in performance creation, critical response skills, marketing, and technical production. This program emphasizes the development of artistic process rather than technical production. Artists are not permitted to supplement their technical budget with additional grant funds. Artists are expected to be in residence in the Twin Cities throughout the mentorship program period. This is a time intensive program and artists should consider their ability to commit to the program prior to applying.

Two artists will be selected as 2021 Naked Stages Fellows. The selected artists meet as a cohort to participate in workshops and together provide a critical and supportive environment for creating work. All parts of the fellowship will be coordinated and facilitated by the Program Director. Artists will receive support for marketing, technical production, and photo and video documentation from PHT. Stage artists will share a one-weekend run at PHT Dec. 16-18, 2021, and PHT site-specific artists will set their own schedule depending on their concept.

Artists are selected based on the merit of their proposal which can be performance art for the stage or site-specific.

The Program Director will facilitate a panel of 3 experienced artists and presenters who in turn will review proposals and select 2 artists to receive Fellowships to present their work at PHT in December of 2021.

Selections will be announced by early May, 2021. Program begins at the end of May, 2021.
