Applications for the 2019 SUITE/Space program are now closed. Applications are now being reviewed and four artists will be selected in August. Thank you for applying!



Mabou Mines’ new performance initiative SUITE/Space provides artistic mentorship, development, rehearsal space, and opportunities for public performances in our new 99-seat theater to artists that reflect NYC’s rich cultural landscape and share Mabou Mines’ commitment to breaking new ground in form and content.

For the inaugural year 2017-18, SUITE/Space artists were nominated by curators. For 2019 and beyond, the SUITE/Space artists will be selected through nominations and a public RFP process. The 2018 curatorial team included Mabou Mines Co-Artistic Director Karen Kandel, Mabou Mines Associate Artist David Neumann, and playwright and former Mabou Mines Resident Artist Carl Hancock Rux.


This program is supported, in part, by The New York Community Trust’s Lila Acheson Wallace Fund for the Arts, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council and the Indie Theater fund.
