UpRiver | Incbator Residency for development of New Australian Performance Work

Riverland Youth Theatre (RYT) has a wonderful gift of space in our venue to share with artists in South Australia and from interstate. The recently upgraded Renmark Institute is a comfortable and versatile rehearsal and performance space.

A new partnership with Australian Landscape Trust has given RYT access to a range of accommodation options at Calperum Station, a 250,000 hectare former leasehold sheep property with frontage on the River Murray and, further north, an expanse of mallee country. The Riverland offers an inspiring environment conducive for creative dreams to take shape.

UpRiver provides groups of artists with in-kind accommodation and workshop space towards the development of new performance works. Residencies of one to four weeks will be open to young, emerging and experienced independent artists across all art-forms.

Through this residential program RYT will bring creative teams of writers, actors, directors, designers, dancers and other performing artists to the Riverland during the creative development stages of arts projects. In receipt visiting artists will be asked to share their skills with young people and the community in a gift-back workshop arrangement.

Please contact RYT’s Artistic Director Julie Waddington for more information and application forms.
