Voice & Vision is looking for projects initiated by women theater artists including performers, directors, writers, designers and groups of collaborators

Voice & Vision Theater’s annual summer retreat offers selected participants an artist-centered workshop environment where they can develop projects with women at the core. Voice & Vision provides ample rehearsal space on the Bard College campus, dramaturgical support, round-trip transportation from New York City, housing, a daily stipend and most meals. The ENVISION retreat affords each artist a highly focused workspace and opportunities to informally present their works-in-progress.

Projects will be chosen to reflect a broad range of aesthetic and cultural perspectives. Past Retreat participants include Ruth Maleczech and Mabou Mines, Kia Corthron, Estelle Parsons, Olympia Dukakis, Yeardley Smith, Lola Pashalinski, Lynn Nottage, Chiori Miyagawa, Caridad Svich, Kristen Marting, Karen Hartman, Jennifer Miller, Lisa D’Amour and Theodora Skipitares.
