Creative support: UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance provides select artists with creative time, space and resources to explore new ideas and develop new work through artistic residencies on the UCLA campus.
Creative development: Invited to participate by CAP UCLA’s creative leadership team and supported by the Residency Fund, CAP UCLA artists-in-residence enjoy a period of concentrated creative development. During this time, they may receive early phase project development support through direct funding, commissions, access to rehearsal space and production resources.
Logistical support: CAP UCLA provides logistical support through its departmental staff and facilitates dialogue with UCLA faculty and researchers in other university departments. It also offers access to UCLA Special Collections archives and research libraries.
UCLA community workshops and presentations: CAP UCLA creates opportunities for UCLA students, faculty and community members to experience workshops and other work in progress presentations by artists-in-residence to provide feedback and build an understanding of the creative process behind creating new works of art.

Annie Saunders with Emma O'Halloran, Christopher Rountree and Wild Up
Annie Saunders is a multidisciplinary director and artist as well as the founding artistic director of the site-specific performance company Wilderness.
Irish composer and vocalist Emma O’Halloran freely intertwines acoustic and electronic music, writing for folk musicians, chamber ensembles, turntables, film and theater.
Wild Up, the popular Los Angeles–based new music ensemble under the direction of Christopher Rountree, has been called “ . . . a raucous, grungy, irresistibly exuberant . . . fun-loving, exceptionally virtuosic family” by the New York Times. While in residence with CAP UCLA, they will be developing Rest, an interactive performance installation that looks at multisensory experience, the nature of consciousness, the suggestibility of the mind, “dopamine fasting” and sensory deprivation. This residency is in partnership with Ucross Foundation.
