Keshet Makers Space Experience

The Keshet Makers Space Experience (MSE) is a residency program in which choreographers/ dancemakers have access to space to develop their craft and their products, at whatever stage that might be – newly germinating ideas, final development of full productions, and/or anything in between – assisting in the process of bringing art to market.

Keshet provides physical space for the “making” at the Keshet Center for the Arts in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The Keshet Center for the Arts has 5 studios and a 220-seat black box theater within which visiting artists can use the space in exchange for providing a few master classes during their time at Keshet. These master classes are open to the community, and when Makers are visiting during a designated cohort period, the classes are also intended for Makers Space participants to learn from and about each other.

The upcoming 2018-2019 Makers Space Experience (MSE) includes three cohort periods held between Nov 2018-March 2019. Keshet will select 5 Makers for each of the 10-day, cohort-based residency periods at the Keshet Center for the Arts. Applicants/Makers can be individual artists (or an applicant team of multiple artists who plan to share a rehearsal space (and a hotel room if applying from out of town). During the cohort period, the Keshet MSE provides access to space, access to classes (movement classes and arts business workshops), lots of sunshine, and oodles of love. So if you or someone you know might benefit from this type of residency experience and would like to come hang out in New Mexico, applications are accepted July 15-Sept 15, 2018.
