DAIR TO BE 2021 APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN
Ausdance NSW’s Dance Artist In Residence program supports the development of new dance work and originated in response to the need for NSW dance artists to access studio space. The residency program supports the development of new work at any stage of its incubation. In 2020, in midst of the public health and economic crisis, the program was quickly adapted to #DAIR Online.
In 2021, the Ausdance NSW Dance Artist In Residence program looks a bit different. The program has been revamped once again to accommodate a range of remote modes of working in our “new normal” as well as virtual platforms on which to present work. There will be three streams: DAIR to be Live, DAIR to be Digital, and DAIR to be Hybrid. While all DAIR recipients must be in residence at a host venue in NSW, they can choose to produce live work (DAIR to be Live) or digital material, either exclusively (DAIR to be Digital) or as part of a live/screen format (DAIR to be Hybrid).
DAIR 2021 thus brings artists closer together. Recipients can collaborate not only with NSW-based artists, but also remotely with regional NSW, interstate and even international artists to be specified in this application form. Ten selected artists will each receive an honorarium for a one-week residency with the option to extend their residency in the form of a one-week space grant. Artists will receive a mentor/dramaturg who can be requested in this form or suggested by or discussed in consultation with Ausdance NSW.
Please note, honorariums and mentor/ dramaturg fees are subject to funding from Create NSW.
Ausdance NSW is the key support & advocacy body, for the creation, presentation and practice of dance in NSW.
Ausdance NSW is part of the Ausdance National Network.
Ausdance acknowledges and respects the Traditional Custodians of the Lands on which we work and dance and pays respect to elders past, present and emerging.
