RESIDENCY 23 APRIL – 10 MAY 2019

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Performance Space and Critical Path are committed to developing innovative, bold and experimental approaches to choreography and movement practice. We are currently seeking proposals from artists or artist collaborations, for a 3-week residency focusing on experimental choreographic practice taking place from 23 April – 10 May 2019.

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

We are seeking to support a period of creative development for an artist or collaboration that:

• Explores experimental and/or interdisciplinary approaches to choreography and movement practice in innovative, rigorous and engaging ways.

• Investigates our place in time and the complexities of making work in the contemporary moment situated in an Australian context.

We are particularly interested in foregrounding a diversity of artistic voices: artists exploring diverse positions on gender and sexuality; Indigenous artists; artists from culturally-diverse backgrounds; artists who critically engage with new technologies; and differently-abled artists.

WHAT WE ARE OFFERING

The successful project will receive:

• Up to $7500 towards project expenses: artist fees, equipment and materials costs.
• 3 weeks of space at Critical Path, Drill Hall, from 23 April – 10 May 2019.
• Production and technical support.
• Producing support from Performance Space.
• Creative advice and feedback from Performance Space and Critical Path.
• A facilitated feedback session at the conclusion of the residency.
• Photographic documentation of the work-in-progress showing.
