TOPAZ ARTS announces a new open call for Dance in Queens 2012:
Space Exploration Dance Residency. Taking place at TOPAZ ARTS, this artist residency focuses on contemporary dance makers, offering choreographers concentrated time and a private space in which to explore new ideas.
Up to six choreographers will be selected to receive free rehearsal space at TOPAZ ARTS. Choreographers will each be awarded 30 hours during April to June 2012 (hours to be used within a one-month period). The intent of this residency is to support the creation process within a concentrated time, allowing choreographers a space in which to explore ideas or new working methods, with an opportunity to have informal open rehearsals or artist talks to discuss their findings of this space exploration among peers and audiences.
Choreographers from all five boroughs of New York City may apply. Also open to artists outside of NYC, but please note: there is no stipend, no travel and no housing provided. Choreographers will be chosen from a competitive application process and reviewed by a panel of professionals in the dance field on the basis of artistic merit, description of intent for the residency and video work samples. Awardees will be announced by mid-March.Get full information and download an application here.
