Trespass Residencies offer emerging performing artists complete access to Future Tenant as they develop and present an original work. The residencies are a week in duration, culminating in two presentations/performances.

2015 Trespass Residencies were offered to 3 Pittsburgh-area artists:

Groove Aesthetics: because she said so
Music Performances: March 13 and 14 at 8pm
Because she said so is an exploration of storytelling across diverse musical genres. The interdisciplinary performance, directed by classically trained vocalist Anqwenique Wingfield, will combine jazz, classical music, media, dance, and poetry readings by a diverse group of women artists into a night celebrating the spirit of collaboration.

Cupid's Brand directed by Andrew Huntley
Theatrical Performances: March 20 and 21 at 8pm
Cupid’s Brand is a new one act play which reinvents Shakespeare’s sonnets in order to tell a fresh love story in a contemporary fashion. Created by Andrew Huntley and performed by Theatre Sans Serif, this raw, intimate production will bring some of the Bard’s most beautiful poetry to life.

Detritus, Vestige, and Dross
Performing art Performances: March 27 and 28 at 8pm
Detritus, Vestige, and Dross is an exciting new piece of performance art that explores what we try to rid ourselves of. Through the use of dance, sound, and text, Creator Moriah Ella Mason will transform Future Tenant’s space to a geography of rubbish and ruin.
