Denver’s home for innovation, experimentation, and excellence in live performance
WORK|SPACE DENVER IN PROSCENIUM SET-UP WITH WHITE MARLEY.
As part of our core mission, Control Group co-directs work|space Denver, a black box performance venue in Denver’s River North Arts District. Our permanent resident status at work|space allows us to create and present our work in close dialog with the physical space that houses it. It also allows us to impact the local arts culture in broader ways, through curating local and touring works, offering residencies to local artists, and serving the community with classes, workshops, and special events.
Our Artist Residency Program gives emerging artists a comprehensive 3-month residency including rehearsal space, administrative and marketing support, a fully produced performance run, and a small stipend from ticket sales. Residencies are awarded by application and are free to the artist. We are open to any medium and award residencies to a broad range of experience levels. See the Residencies page on work|space Denver’s website for more information, and submit proposals here.
The Extraordinary Performance Importation and Circulation (EPIC) Program brings exceptional artists from across the country and the world to perform at work|space, and sends local artists through out the region to share their work. We aim to broaden our audiences’ access to the global arts dialogue by presenting independent work by emerging and cutting edge artists. Please contact us if you are interested in touring work to work|space, or bringing Control Group to your theater.
Control Group’s Professional Development and Community Education Programs give professional artists and interested community members the opportunity to study with our master artists. Offerings range from weekly dance, yoga, and movement classes to special-topic intensives and festivals. See our Classes page for course listings, and contact Kristine if you are interested in offering a class at PHCA.
work|space is a black box theater with attached gallery/foyer, back-stage area, and small studio. Staging, seating, and technical set-ups are highly versatile, and we also present non-seated installation/performance events.
