We accept applications for Deep Space starting in November for the upcoming presenting season (typically May-October). Application deadline is January 31. Applicants will be notified of decisions by email in early March.

Deep Space is a performance residency program for artists and groups who make devised, original, or ensemble performance. NACL will support artists who need extended time in the theatre for projects in an advanced staged of development, to incorporate production elements, execute technical rehearsals, and/or refine artistic choices. Companies must work with their own technicians, designers and full artistic core.

DEEP SPACE provides artists with exclusive use of the NACL theatre and artist residence for one week. At the end of the week NACL will produce and present the performance as part of its presenting season. NACL provides limited technical assistance as well as all front of house staffing. Artists will receive a stipend to support their work.
