Choreographers come to the residencies with their own projects which they want to develop during the stay in cooperation with an experienced artist ("coach"). The goal of the residence is neither the training of dancers, nor the aesthetic aspect of the expression, but gaining new points of view on one's own creative work, space and possibility to deepen one's individual elements or to seek new ways of expressing artistic intention. The whole residency has the form of a dialogue between choreographers and coaches who direct them. Deadline: 13 May 2018.
