The Artist-in-Residence Program at ODC Theater offers a crucial developmental opportunity for San Francisco Bay Area mid-career dance artists. These artists bring wonderful expression, variety, and quality to our region’s cultural life and with adequate resources can make long term contributions to the field.  The ideal candidate has been professionally choreographing for a minimum of five years, demonstrates a clear and distinct artistic vision through compelling work, and possesses an appetite for critical discussion.

Four individual dance artists are offered commissioning, critical discourse around their work, national networking, administrative guidance, and performance opportunities over three years. The next cohort of resident artists will be selected in 2018.

ODC Theater Resident Artists 2015-2018: 
Gerald Casel
Maurya Kerr
Nicole Klaymoon
Lisa Wymore and Sheldon Smith

In addition to the four resident artists, ODC Theater hosts four resident companies.  In addition to contributing to our city’s cultural life, these artists represent a national dance field context for ODC audiences and other resident artists. Resident companies are renewed on an annual basis.
