RoseAnne Spradlin is the 2017-18 Randjelovic/Stryker Resident Commissioned Artist (RCA). This award continues a long relationship with New York Live Arts and Dance Theater Workshop, beginning with Fresh Tracks in 1990, and several presentations and commissions since. RoseAnne will be working on a commission to premiere in Fall of 2018.
The Randjelovic/Stryker Resident Commissioned Artist program was created in 2011 by New York Live Arts to address what we perceive to be an overall lack of support for mid-career artists. The program is by-invitation only and offers a salary, health benefits, two years of residency time and a commission of a new work to premiere at New York Live Arts. Select works will then be chosen for a fully produced national and/or international tour managed by New York Live Arts.
Okwui Okpokwasili is the 2015-2017 New York Live Arts Randjelovic/Stryker Resident Commissioned Artist (RCA). Okpokwasili’s Poor People’s TV Room New York City premiere is on April 19, 2017.
