The Randjelović/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.

The 2021-2022 Randjelović/Stryker RCA, Faye Driscoll, is known for crafting an alchemy of bodies and voices, objects and live sound to open new intimacies that grapple with power and presence, as well as yearning and absence. Driscoll’s new work, Waves (working title) is a choreography of persistent, oscillating entanglement. In it, ripples of light, singing, sound and skin surge into currents that crest and cascade through bodies awash in the physicality of touch. It will have its world premiere at Live Arts in 2023.

Driscoll’s new work Waves (working title) is a choreography of persistent, oscillating entanglement. In it, ripples of light, singing, sound and skin surge into currents that crest and cascade through bodies awash in the physicality of touch. Waves radiates throughout the space, through voices, through audiences, through objects. It asks: how can we know this flesh through, and beyond, its limitations? What forces sustain us as we struggle, push, flood and disappear into each other?
