Artists in Residence
Are you an aspiring artist needing space? Apply to The Muse Brooklyn’s Artist-in-Residence program and become part of our community of high-flyers and artists. At the Muse, we are well-acquainted with the hustle -- we know that artists do not necessarily have the resources to produce the work of their dreams. Our Artists-in-Residence receive support from the Muse on all fronts: with discounted or free rehearsal space, reduced event rental rates, and access to materials and promotional support. We make it possible for emerging artists to incubate new works that add dynamism and depth to the growing world of circus arts in NYC.
Please fill out our event rental questionnaire with detailed info about your proposed concept.
Please also send an email to info@TheMuseBrooklyn.com with further information about your rehearsal needs, creative vision, and work history.

Born in Sichuan, China, artist Millie Li focuses on abstracted forms of internal bodies, which she deems "portraits of the universal, visceral bond of all sensuous life forms". A graduate of Columbia University with Departmental Honors in Film Studies, Li has worked for Tony and Academy-Award-winning producer Scott Rudin (No Country for Old Men) and Michael Hausman (Brokeback Mountain) and was an animator for comedian Negin Farsad's Nerdcore Rising and 3rd Street Blackout. Li also co-produced The Land Is Stale, an independent mystery-thriller web series. Li was the former Administrative Director and Marketing Manager for the STREB Lab for Action Mechanics (SLAM) -- a circus arts and modern dance training facility, performing arts space, and home to MacArthur 'Genius' Award Fellow Elizabeth Streb and her Extreme Action dance company!
