Be a part of DISCO RIOT’s second 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.
In response to the current conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic, We have had to make some adjustments to the residency format: 1) we are offering an accelerated 6-week timeline for this years’ residents and 2) only accepting applications for solo movement projects, unless you can propose a project that follows the current distancing guidelines. Projects that involve cross-disciplinary collaborators who are not required to be in physical proximity or share physical space (i.e. a movement artist and a music composer, videographer, visual artist etc.) will be given priority consideration.
