Led by Canadian choreographer Ame, this residency brings together 12 artists to engage with methods and ideas distilled from contemporary choreographic practice. The goal of the residency is to explore how choreographic thinking – spatial, temporal and sensory – can enhance a diverse range of artistic practices.
The program is for professional artists working in disciplines other than dance who are leaning towards choreographic ideas, and for dance practitioners investigating choreography in dialogue with other art forms. Applications will be open nationally to makers, with a focus on South Australian makers and an interest in uniting the dance and making communities.
Critical Path is partnering The Mill to offer two bursaries for artists from outside of SA to attend.
