With support from the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation and other generous donors, The Performing Garage has established a residency program that offers artists space and time at The Performing Garage to develop work in all contemporary arts disciplines — no fee. We encourage applications from performing artists, visual artists, artists working in the moving image and digital media, architects and designers — anyone at all whose interests may intersect with performance ideas and actions and would like some time and a place to work.

We currently are accepting applications for residencies that will take place in fall-winter 2014-15. The deadline for submitting applications is January 15, 2014. We will announce the Fall 2014 residencies on Monday, March 17, 2014.  application form.

The Performing Garage has been The Wooster Group’s permanent home and performance venue since its beginning and all of their work has been developed there. It was bought in the early 1970s when Soho was still an empty warehouse district being reinhabited by artists. The Wooster Group owns and operates it as a shareholder in the Grand Street Artists Co-op, which was originally established as part of the Fluxus art movement in the 1960s. Before the formation of The Wooster Group, The Performance Group developed and produced work at the Garage. From 1975-1980 the two groups shared the space. Prior to The Performance Group founding The Performing Garage, 33 Wooster Street was a metal stamping/flatware factory.

Residencies may follow any of the three scenarios described below and may be used to advance work in any stage of development. All residencies offer free space, technical assistance and a page on www.theperforminggarage.org. There is no fee to apply and artists whose work results in a public presentation at the Garage will receive an honorarium.
