Performing Arts Creation Lab - Winter 2022
In a collegial campus atmosphere of like-minded artists working in and across a range of disciplines, artists are encouraged this season to propose self-sufficient projects that require no in-studio technical labour or equipment support from Banff Centre staff beyond essential room set-up. Companies are encouraged to travel with all personnel required to handle the work.
A limited number of on-stage technical residencies with local crew support will be available in the Spring 2022 block.
