Emerging Artist Residencies
Choreographers and composers develop and workshop new collaborative work
This annual program, begun in June 2017, offers emerging choreographers and composers in the New York City area an unprecedented opportunity to create collaborative work on an experienced company of dancers and musicians, workshop it under the guidance of a guest teacher, and perform the new work for an audience. To our knowledge, nothing like this exists in New York City.
The opportunity for choreographers and composers to work closely together in a collaborative setting is very rare for emerging artists in the professional field, and to be able to create and workshop new work on a company accustomed to such collaborations is almost unheard of. We’re pleased to provide such an opportunity, further fostering the development of a new collaborative repertoire within a spirit of artistic experimentation and innovation. By making the final performance open to the public, we believe we can further the dialogue among our fellow artists and the greater dance and music audiences about the possibilities inherent in interdisciplinary collaboration and increase access to new, innovative work.
