On Residence.

In 2021, Dancehouse is piloting a new residency program: On Residence, offering Australian independent dance artists time, space and cash to create and connect with Dancehouse’s network of dance-loving organisations and their communities in outer-metropolitan and regional Victoria and NSW.

This paid opportunity is flexible and adaptable. It moves with you, your project or work, and the host partners’ specific context. On Residence supports any stage of a dance project or work’s development from initial research through to creative development. This first round of On Residence will support at least 6 residencies between July 2021 and June 2022.

On Residence is a direct pathway to future presentation or realisation of projects with Dancehouse from 2022 — this might be on site at Dancehouse or offsite through affiliated partnerships or contexts.

With On Residence Dancehouse will support artists to develop works and projects at any stage, establish relationships and connections with Dancehouse, communities, practices, and partners. The program draws on Dancehouse’s experience cultivating similar meaningful alliances internationally.

Locally and globally, our collective experience of COVID and climate emergency demand we connect and form stronger local networks and deeper relationships.

EOIs close midnight Tuesday 1 June 2021.
