RESA – Residency for Exchange and Sustainability in the Arts

Open Call for Transnational Research Residencies
Within The Field of Choreography
Deadline: June 8, 2018 at noon CEST

Dansehallerne has invited a European network of arts organisations, academic research platforms and artist-driven venues active in the field of choreography, to design a pilot programme dedicated to experienced, mid-career choreographers conducting research with own artistic practice as its base and object, aiming for deepened insights, knowledge and collegial exchange needed for artistic development and sustainability in the field.

What are RESA objectives?

  • Support the development of artistic quality, content and substance
  • Exchange and disseminate knowledge, experiences and insights within the field and across borders
  • Promote artists, creating new professional opportunities and expanding markets
  • Create sustainable careers, supporting activities that provide new skills and know-how in a strong collegial setting

What is a transnational residency?
The network has created a support scheme complimentary to existing residency formats and academic opportunities, in order to support the transnational research trajectories of artists. The network is committed to artists’ development by supporting each participant to shape the best transnational research trajectory, connect with artists and academic researchers, and make the most of opportunities existing in the different European contexts. The network has a solid expertise and benefits from the knowledge and other resources of its galaxies of contacts at local, regional, national as well as international levels. The network aims at establishing a quality and trustful dialogue with artists, on the long-term, and provide them with tailor-made services.

Who can apply?
For this first call, the network invites experienced, mid-career artists who want to deepen knowledge and push the understanding of choreography, work with choreography as artistic mode of intervention in society, and have a genuine interest in developing new formats for inclusive and interactive dialogues.

RESA is therefore open for artists who want to contribute to sustainable strategies for the role and the relevance of choreographic practices, with a take on various elements for action, thought, reflection and writing.
