Making Space is a process-led residency that takes place alongside the Summer Dancing festival 2010. The residency offers time and space to support artists to further develop and investigate a particular area of interest.
Making Space takes place in the three weeks prior to Summer Dancing (4-26 June) and full participation at the festival is included in the package.
The residency provides space, materials, accommodation and where appropriate other dancers to support the artists' enquiry. The emphasis of the programme is on process although there will be performance opportunities or studio based sharings where appropriate. There is the possibility for mentoring from a Summer Dancing 2010 artist.
Applications are welcomed from artists working with movement as their primary practice, but acknowledge that this may manifest in a variety of forms such as new media, performance and live art. Making Space welcomes applications from artists based in the West Midlands, UK and internationally.
Submissions should express an interest in two or more of the following:
- Somatic informed work.
- Process-led practices.
- Work that is informed by site or environment.
- An openess to collaborations and/or interdisciplinary performance.
- An interest in developing a discourse about own working process and aesthetic.
