Among a competitive pool of applications, Ana was awarded residency space at New Works within the 2022-23 season. New Works strives to build process-focused artist-lead residency space that is responsive to the creative’s need. This may look like time in the studio, in the theatre, or a mix of the two, and may or may not include a public sharing.
A New Works residency is a safe space for creative risk taking. Ana is still in process and will let us know if a public sharing is planned as part of their residency time. Keep an eye on this space for updates!
