Studio Residencies 2015
In response to the ongoing challenge of accessible space for the development of dance practice. Tracks is again offering an opportunity for Northern Territory dance artists to use our dance studio, free of charge, to work on contemporary choreographic development, either through research or development.
Make the most of this wet season to work in our air-conditioned studio. Availability will be organised in consultation around Tracks Dance’s scheduled working periods. There is no requirement to complete a work. However, there will be a showing and forum of the artist’s development with a small group of industry peers.
This residency is not for commercial practice, such as classes or for rehearsals for funded projects. Dance artists of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. There is no money attached to this opportunity.
Contemporary dance artists living or working in the Northern Territory pursuing an innovative practice are eligible to apply.
Successful artists are chosen on the basis of the quality and innovation of work, and the potential benefits to the applicant and to the broader community. Decisions are ultimately subject to the availability of the studio.
The number of successful applicants will depend on studio availability and time requirements of applicants, as well as:
• Calibre of artist / collaborating artists.
• Clear articulation of concept, rationale and process.
• Benefit of receiving the Studio Residency at this point in the development of a work OR to developing their practice.
• Benefit to the broader community.
Proposals should address the applicant’s reasons for wanting to undertake the studio residency and an outline of their project (which may be simply to pursue independent studio practice, or cultural exchange opportunities, etc.)
