Leah Stein Dance Company is pleased to announce the pilot program of REAP, residency for emerging artists in performance program. Created to meet the high demand for artist support in Philadelphia, Leah Stein Dance Company has initiated REAP as a pilot program in summer 2018 to offer unlimited studio access to a small cohort of artists working in dance, music, theatre, and generally performance. Other than space access, the program design is artist-driven with no requirements to produce work within parameters. The residency is a true opportunity for exploration and time for creative process.
After the summer pilot session and using artist feedback, LSDC will launch the program with more robust offerings in 2019. The pilot resident artists for summer 2018 are Belle Alvarez, Emily Bate, Lela Aisha Jones, Carl(os) Roa, and Mira Treatman.
The REAP artists (pictured below) will post process blogs about their time in the studio throughout the summer.
