International Residency Exchange

Space To Fail

Space to Fail is an international residency ‘exchange’ that through its focus on dance making processes sits in opposition to the sector’s priority of product / performance-making, by allowing time and space for artists to simply work without a fear of failure.

A partnership of Hyde Productions (Aoteoroa / New Zealand), The Dance Centre (Vancouver, Canada) and Critical Path (Australia), Space to Fail invites 6 choreographic artists to spend time together, without a leader, without an agenda; to take risks.

We are looking for 2 Australian artists to participate across the following dates & places;

Christchurch / Sydney

13 to 30 July inclusive


19 November to 3 December inclusive

You must be available for all dates/days.

There will be an honorarium for the project of $2840 AUD

Please forward an expression of interest via Survey Monkey by 10am AEST 19 May
