Tasdance announces residency program

Tasdance recently announced its newest opportunity for professional dance artists and choreographers Australia-wide, the Tasdance Residency for Independent Practice (TRIP.) Hosted by Tasdance at it’s premises in Launceston, Tasmania, TRIP is an artist-in-residence program intended for both project-based and research-based residencies.


Tasdance has a long history of supporting dance practice and dance artists in Australia. TRIP reinforces and expands on this commitment with an artist-in-residence program that takes advantage of their unique situation and superb facilities. The Tasdance Studio and Cottage are located amidst tranquil gardens providing resident artists with much needed space and time for reflection, invigoration, collaboration and response.


Annie Greig, Tasdance Artistic Director, said: “This is a wonderful way to utilize our fantastic studio and to continue our work in nurturing artists, allowing them to focus on research and creative development without the additional pressure of performance outcomes.”


Tasdance invites Australian dance artists and choreographers to submit a proposal for a residency that may include developing a new dance work, investigating some aspect or idea in their dance practice, or undertaking choreographic or other research. Each resident artist will be offered up to three weeks between September and November 2013 with access to both the Tasdance studio and cottage free-of-charge.


To apply, artists and choreographers should submit an application, their CV, two references and a show reel. Applications close Jan. 29, 2013. For more information or to access the application visit www.tasdance.com.au
