We movers and shakers know that the art of making dances requires SPACE, and while there seems to be plenty of it out there, it doesn’t always feel accessible. Be a part of DISCO RIOT’s first edition of S P A C E Alliance, a studio residency program promoting the cooperation of local spaces and movement-artists. This unique program not only connects dance makers to rehearsal space, but also offers an organized and mindful experience for creative inquiry, artistic development, networking, creative and cultural exchange, and a platform to share work. In alignment with Disco Riot’s mission, we seek to promote interdisciplinary movement-based art with themes of social change and storytelling. We will be working with community partners such as Art Produce to help facilitate the needs of non-movement based collaborators. With the intention of cultivating a culture of reciprocity, we are looking for up to four makers to participate in this 10-week residency from August 25 – November 3, 2019.
Applicant must be over the age of 18. Artists currently enrolled as full-time students in a dance program or with considerable rehearsal space will not be considered. Artist must be able to work around the schedule of the studios which might require daytime rehearsals. With movement at the heart of each residency project, the focus of S P A C E is to promote interdisciplinary, collaborative art-making. As such, applications with an interdisciplinary, cross-media focus will be given priority consideration.
Application is due by 11:59 PST on June 8, 2019. Artists will be notified of results by June 15, 2019.
