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 Theater, our neighbors in the Archive Building, we provide independent theatre companies with that most elusive and invaluable resource: an artistic home.

What is the Archive Residency?

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.
