_IN RESIDENCE

_IN RESIDENCE

Dancehouse believes that nothing can be more inspiring and enriching for an artist than mobility and connectivity to wider contexts/networks/territories and audiences. We seek to develop strategic, sustainable and meaningful partnerships with like-minded organisations, in Australia and overseas. The partnerships are guided by a shared interest in exchange, reciprocity and dialogue. These relationships are vital in order to maintain viability of dance artists and companies, creative vibrancy of the sector, and ultimately to prevent the loss of talent.

_IN RESIDENCE is Dancehouse’s program of international artist-exchange. These programs stem from long term organisation-to-organisation conversations with similar ‘sister’ organisations globally and is anchored by the idea that nothing can be more inspiring for an artist than being exposed to different contexts and territories.
