With the goal of developing puppetry, Casteliers and the Montréal Arts Council (Conseil des arts de Montréal-CAM) are partnering, in collaboration with The Le Schatz House, to offer two (2) creative residencies for professional puppeteers.
The residencies will each last for nineteen (19) days. They will take place in two stages: two weeks at the Maison Internationale des arts de la marionnette (MIAM) and five (5) days at the Le Schatz House in Sutton. These residencies must be held at the MIAM during one of the following three periods: from December 6 to 19, 2021, from February 7 to 20, 2022 or from March 21 to April 3, 2022, and at the Le Schatz House in the months of November 2021 or March 2022.
The residencies were developed based on the following objectives:
- Offer puppeteers in residence time to work and rehearse on a show being created, whether they are at the beginning, in the middle or at the end of their process
- Give access to MIAM’s specialized spaces, equipment and resources
- Give access to a creative space located in the heart of nature, the Le Shatz House
- Support the creation of works by the Montréal puppetry community
One of the two residencies will be reserved for a project by artists from a minority group: Indigenous (First Nations, Métis, or Inuit), racialized minorities, ethnocultural diversity.
