You Can Be My Wingman is a week-long, hosted retreat for performance makers of all kinds. Produced by Action Hero, supported by Dartington Trust, and with mentoring from Britt Hatzius  (DE / UK). The retreat is an open-ended, non-pressurised space for mid-career artists to explore new collaborative processes in a supported and friendly environment. You Can Be My Wingman isn’t a residency or a workshop. Instead of being ‘productive’ time, the retreat is intended to be restful and nourishing to your practice. 

You Can Be My Wingman will run from Saturday 12h February – Friday 18th February 2022 at Dartington Hall in Totnes, and artists who wish to join the retreat are invited to apply, together with a proposed collaborator, to spend a week exploring an area of mutual interest. The deadline for applications is 5pm, Monday 13th December. More information can be found here
