Catalyst Dance Residency 2016

In partnership with Accessible Arts.

An intensive choreographic laboratory over six-days at the Drill Hall, Catalyst Dance participants will have the opportunity to engage with three leading dance practitioners as they undertake practice-based research. This process will reflect each choreographer’s interests and choreographic explorations.

The Catalyst Dance Residency is a national artist development program across two years supporting 14 dance practitioners with and without disability who have a demonstrated commitment to integrated dance practice. In 2015 participants attended a 7-day Skills and Career Development Residency.

The residency will include an interactive sharing and feedback session of the work discovered over the week.

Participating Artists: Joshua Campton, Tara Coughlan’s, Chris Dyke, Elle Evangelista, Jianna Georgiou, Zakaria Ghomri, Kayah Guenther, Lorcan Hopper, Matthew Massaria, Max McAuley, Annabel Saies, Charlie Smith, Allycia Staples, Karen Veldhuizen

Program Director: Sarah-Vyne Vassallo
