PTC is convening our fourteenth annual 10-day residency, WrightSpace, in Vancouver, BC, December 7 – 19, 2020. Each year, PTC welcomes a small group of professional Canadian playwrights to join us for a short-term residency to work on one of their projects. This year, we are inviting proposals for projects engaged with creatively increasing access for audiences. We encourage playwrights and creation teams to grapple with hybrid (live/digital) experiments from an aesthetic perspective. Small audiences, distanced participation, and creative ways to bring people together will be part of our shared explorations. Residency participants may re-think a piece that already exists and consider specific experiments to develop it further. PTC will engage technical support as required to assist in executing creative proposals. Artists receive a stipend ($2000) and should be available to dedicate significant periods of studio and writing time to the work during the residency. We will follow public health guidelines in designing any in-person contacts, and will engage digital processes in the residency. Applicants should be based in Canada, in Pacific or Mountain time zones to ensure sufficient time cross-over.
