In 2014 Scott McPheeters, with Niki and Jorge Cousineau bought the old Shamrock Farm on Guinea Road in Biddeford, Maine to create an artists residency. Subcircle, founded in 1999, by Niki and Jorge, is a performance and installation company based in Philadelphia for the past twenty one years and has been spending summers in Maine in preparation to moving here full-time in 2021.Subcircle’s work transforms theatrical and site-specific spaces, merging dance, sound, set design, lighting and film. Whether site-specific or performance for the stage, the work aims to convey to audience and performer alike – an inseparability of performance from environment. With collaboration at its core, the company has worked with choreographer/director Carol Brown (London/New Zealand), composer Toby Twining, actor Geoff Sobelle, choreographers Darla Stanley and Gin MacCallum among others. Some of their works include Hold Still While I figure this out (2016) Thine Eyes (2013), Only Sleeping (2010), SEED (2011) and Still unknown (2006). Six years ago, choreographer and performer Scott McPheeters joined the Cousineau’s as a co-director and together they expanded the company’s mission to include Subcircle Residency - to give artists space and time for creative dreaming. After fundraising for four years, they were able to renovate the barn to house a beautiful studio and invite their first artists in residence in 2019.
