THE REPUBLIC of Sydenham emerged in 2007 as a collective of independent artists, writers, and activists. The Republic has presented live dance performances, benefits, drumming sessions, and dialogues. The Republic Art Gallery has hosted art exhibitions and featured live music performances. On five acres of private land, it is also home to the seven mango trees, eight fig trees, countless paw-paw, tambarind and one, two mad cats. THE REPUBLIC is located in the hills of St. Ann's, Port of Spain, near Queens Park Savannah, Royal Botanic Gardens, the Prime Minister's official residence and diplomatic centre, and Emperor Valley Zoo.
Offers artists residencies (up to three months) in contemporary and traditional dance and performance studies in Trinidad & Tobago in an open, comfortable environment with many opportunities for interaction, exchange and learning. The goal of the residency is to provide a space where professional dance artists from the Caribbean can engage in creation, conversation and performance with dance and performing artists from around the world.
