Tantrum Residency (previously Trajectory Residency) is our revamped annual program for local early-career artists or groups, providing them with space, mentoring, and the opportunity to forge professional connections around the creative development of their own new performance work.
Tantrum Residency is the perfect opportunity to test and refine ideas, seek feedback, and engage in the rigorous process of developing a new work while supported by the Hunter’s leading professional youth arts organisation.
