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 fear of failure. The project is realised with the partnership of Hyde Productions (Christchurch, New Zealand), The Dance Centre (Vancouver, Canada) and Critical Path (Sydney, Australia).

Alice Weber and Tim Darbyshire from Australia, Ileanna Cheladyn and Vanessa Goodman from Canada and Alexa Wilson and Josie Archer from New Zealand will participate in the residencies across three countries. As part of Critical Path’s developing Koori Producer program in partnership with Blakdance, the First Nations Australian Artist Mariaa Randall will also participate in the International Visitors Program at Dance In Vancouver, 20-24 November 2019.

The artists will participate in residencies across the following dates & places;
Vancouver, Canada 20 – 29 November 2019
Christchurch, New Zealand 15 – 23 February 2020
Sydney, Australia 24 February – 2 March 2020
