Filament Theatre seeks members for Cooperative Theatre Residency Program, beginning 2016.
More than a transactional rental agreement, Filament’s Co-Op Program will unite Chicago theatre companies in the spirit of support, cooperation, and mutual benefit. Member companies will pay a competitive monthly rate, corresponding with weeks of space use. That monthly fee includes use of Filament’s 4000 square foot blackbox theatre, rehearsal studio, production support; administrative support including scheduling, box office, and facilities management; access to a shared email database for a monthly Coop e-blast; insurance; repairs and maintenance.
Though companies operate in a spirit of administrative collaboration, each Member Company will remain artistically distinct and autonomous. The Co-Op currently consists of Filament Theatre and Two Pence Theatre Company, and we are looking for 1-2 additional companies to complete this program.

By working together we are all stronger.
Please submit a letter of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us a little bit about your organization including a recent production history (including length of run and performance venue), and why you are interested in the Co-Op program.
After we receive your letter of interest, you may be asked to prepare a few additional materials and schedule an in-person meeting with Filament and co-op member Two Pence Theatre Company, at which point we will give you a full tour of the space and discuss the program in more detail.
