bringing contemporary movement

into the conversation


Artist Residencies provide space for our artists to develop ideas and methodologies outside of a commission, performance or institutional framework. In turn, this research is shared with the wider community through Movement Labs, online platforms and open Research Performances.

“There is a need not only to support dance companies but also the artists who are going to provide the dancers and choreographers for those companies in the future.”

- CNZ Dance Review 2.3.1
