2024 ADT Tanja Liedtke Studio Residency Applications Open

2024 ADT Tanja Liedtke Studio Residency Applications Open

In partnership with the Tanja Liedtke Foundation, Australian Dance Theatre is thrilled to continue the Tanja Liedtke Studio Residency program. 

Offered periodically throughout the year in The Tanja Liedtke Studio, the residencies give artists dedicated time and space to develop new works, experiment and extend their choreographic and artistic practice.

The Residencies are open to independent dance artists and choreographers from all over Australia, with artists joining us at The Odeon on Kaurna Yerta for the duration of their residency.

In 2024, they’re offering three residency opportunities: one for artists based on Kaurna Yerta, one for artists based in regional South Australia, and one for artists based outside of South Australia. 

Residents receive a stipend of $2,600 and free access to the Tanja Liedtke Studio for two weeks, giving artists dedicated time and space to develop their work. For those artists travelling to Adelaide, ADT will also cover travel costs and provide local accommodation; regional and interstate applicants are encouraged to discuss travel and accommodation options with ADT before submitting their application.

Residencies will offered during the following periods throughout 2024: 3 – 14 June; 26 August – 6 September; and 11 – 22 November.

Please note that applicants may only apply for one project per year. Applicants are encouraged to list their order of preference in their application if they’re able to be in residence across 2024.

Applications close at 5pm, Tuesday 19 March. Applicants are required to compile the following materials into a single document (PDF or .DOCX) and email their application to residencies@adt.org.au.

Applications should include the name and contact information of the application along with your preferred residency dates (or your order of preference of the dates on offer). Applicants will need to submit a cover letter of no more than two pages that include a 100-word artistic statement that outlines the project and the outcomes you wish to achieve. You will also need to include a CV outlining previous experience, as well as links to previous works.
