Criteria and Context:
Movement Research supports the creative process and emerging ideas of artists, not final product. Finished, fully produced work is not expected, nor is MR able to support final productions.

Through the Artist-in-Residence Program, Movement Research supports:

• Rigorous and wide-ranging artistic investigations that are movement-based, but that may incorporate other disciplines and collaborations. 

• Artists at all stages of their career, from those who are just starting to make work to those who have been making work for years. 

• Artists who reflect a range of directions and approaches to making work such that there is an interesting confluence of artistic ideas being explored over the course of the coming years. 
• Artists must apply as individuals, and only one individual artist will be granted each residency.

Resources provided by Movement Research during the first year of the residency: 
• A commissioning fee of $3000 
• 50 hours of free rehearsal space 
• Access to free or reduced rates for classes and workshops 
• Consideration for participation in MRX/Movement Research Exchange programs 
• Opportunities to participate in other MR programs and to create own opportunities in consultation with staff, using MR infrastructure – this can include Studies Project discussion series 
• Consultations with MR staff in individual and in group settings 
• Opportunities to write for the Movement Research blog and possible opportunities to write for Critical Correspondence and the Performance Journal 

During that year-long residency each AIR is required to: 
• Show work on the Movement Research at the Judson Church series 
• Moderate at least one Open Performance post-discussion 
• Attend a minimum of 6 artist-in-residence discussion meetings every 4-6 weeks on topics determined by the artists

• Access to free or reduced rates for classes and workshops
• Opportunities to participate in MRX programs
• An additional opportunity to show work on the Movement Research at the Judson Church series
