Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics


The Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics (The Lab) invites applications for the 2020-2021 cohort of its Fellows Program. The Lab’s mission is to humanize global politics through the power of performance.

The Fellows Program is an 18-month, transnational residency that connects Fellows to a community of peers, fosters collaboration, and inspires intersectional and international dialogue.


Applications are welcomed from performing artists who also define themselves as community-based and/or globally-minded activists, educators, or policymakers working at the intersection of performance and politics/social justice.


All Fellows are required to attend 90-minute virtual meetings via Zoom, hosted monthly over the course of the Fellowship.

All Fellows will attend a weeklong in-person convening during the summer of 2020 and a second one during late spring of 2021. Travel and accommodation for both of these convenings will be fully funded.

During the program, each Fellow can request up to USD $2,500 annually in funds from The Lab to support a range of activities.
