It is geared to choreographers who are wanting to develop a specific area of their practice, or who want to focus intently on a specific aesthetic, methodological or theoretical question that impacts their practice. It’s a program that fosters creative risk-taking and deep research in a safe and supportive environment.
Choreographers are paired with up to two Alberta-based dancers, and have dedicated studio space at cSPACE King Edward for 15 hours over 5 days. All artists involved have the opportunity to share practice questions over lunchtime think tanks.
Research this year is supported by DSW artistic director Sasha Ivanochko and Vancouver-based artist Justine A. Chambers.
