Each year there is an opportunity for choreographers to use our studio space free of charge, to work on a new contemporary dance project.

There will be no presentation outcome to this initiative but artists are encouraged to arrange a showing of the work they develop at the studio and invite feedback from peers and audience. There is no cash component to this residency – only free space.

In 2017 we will provide two types of Residencies:

Full Time two-week Residencies – for four artists.


Out of Time residencies, providing small chunks of time after hours (after 6pm) and weekends throughout the year – for two artists.

Opportunities for Full Time Residencies will be available in the mid to late part of the year (post Easter – April 17th onwards). Out of Time Residencies will be available at times when the studio is free throughout the whole year.
