This year-long program, suitable for choreographers approaching mid-career, is an opportunity that focuses on supporting the individual’s specific goals and interests as they look to take their next steps as an artist.

The Resident Director receives a $12,000 fee (plus superannuation) and up to 6 weeks of dedicated full-time access at WXYZ Studios to support the creation and development of new work. LGI also supports the artist with advice on applying and securing funding and presentation opportunities for new works created during this period. Additionally, the Resident Director has regular access to LGI’s office and year-round studio program (including daily class and all workshop programs), and is invited to participate in artistic planning meetings with the Artistic Director and staff, including participation in LGI’s Curatorium.
