Opportunity Details

Closing Date

Dec 17, 2021





Channelled Impulse is a new residency programme by LJ Projects in partnership with DANCE.HERE.NOW that aims to support dance artists in innovative dance making to build their professional network, exchange with others in the field and develop their practice while generating new knowledge. Across the programme, Channelled Impulse invites two dance artists to work and collaborate with emerging dancers to create a new dance work.

As a choreographing artist you will be grouped with a selection of young dancers in the region with the purpose of exploration of new ideas and creation of a new short work. The residency involves a two week rehearsal period with a public showing at the end of the development. Throughout the residency industry mentors will visit to work with and support the artists in their process.

The application is divided into two sections one for choreographers and another for emerging performing artists.
