CYCLE 5 AUDREY RESIDENCIES
WELCOME 2018 NEW GEORGES AUDREY RESIDENTS!
Announcing Cycle 5, the new group of Audrey residents at New Georges!
Named for Audrey Bernfield, Susan’s mom, an innovative mentor and of course a great supporter of our company, the year-long residencies that make up our core play development program are project-based and collaboration-focused. Residency consists of up to 3 weeks of space in The Room to spend working on a new-play project over the course of the year, a monthly meal and conversation with the full resident community, and additional resources we muster as needs emerge.
Big thanks to prior residents Saviana Stanescu, Leigh Fondakowski and Jacqueline Goldfinger, who joined Susan, Jaynie and Sonya to select the new batch in one very long inspiring day of conversations with potential residents — good job! This cycle, we sense a (perhaps unsurprising) theme: disruption. Of process, of mode of presentation, of classics from the canon. Also: MUSIC! And our first composer residents, 3 of ’em. Welcome our biggest class of Audreys EVER! 16 residents and 8 amazing new-play projects!
