Over the past 25 years, artists in the International Summer Program have utilized The Watermill Center as a home and a workshop to create and develop works that critically investigate, challenge, and extend the existing norms of performance practice. Today, the International Summer Program welcomes over 100 artists from across disciplines to create works that engage the local community.
The Watermill Center Artist Residency Program began in 2006, when The Center officially opened as a year-round facility. Each year, up to twenty collectives and individual artists take up residence at The Center. In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Residency Program, The Watermill Center reflects on the work of our alumni artists.
