What is the Archive Residency?

The Archive Residency offers artists a two-year commitment of space, artistic support, and institutional continuity for the development and presentation of a new work. In partnership with IRT Theatre, our neighbors in the Archive Building, we provide independent theatre companies with that most elusive and invaluable resource: an artistic home.

In the first year, resident companies are provided one month of development at IRT and a workshop presentation as part of the New Ohio's Ice Factory. The second year includes another month of development at IRT and a world premiere presentation in our mainstage season.

The partnership between New Ohio and IRT that forms the Archive Residency helps further establish the West Village's Archive Building as one of the premier destinations for the development and presentation of NYC's best and brightest theatre makers.
Who we are

New Ohio Theatre develops and presents bold new work from New York's independent theatre community. We believe that the best of this community, the small artist-driven companies who operate without a permanent theatrical home, are actively expanding the theatrical boundaries of the American theatre. We use our development and presenting programs to nurture, strengthen, and promote this community for Manhattan's most adventurous theater audiences.

IRT is a grassroots laboratory for independent theater and performance in New York City, providing space and support to a new generation of artists. IRTís mission is to build a community of emerging and established artists by creating a home for the development and presentation of new work.
