Description

The residency is intended to enable a Québec choreographer or dancer to reside for two months abroad, accompanied by an artistic partner of his or her choice. The professional partner may come from one of the following fields: the circus arts, the digital arts, cinema and video, the multidisciplinary arts, the visual arts, popular song, dance, literature and storytelling, the arts and crafts, music, architectural research, and theatre.

Working as a pair in Potsdam will enable the recipients to develop their artistic relationship and explore new avenues for creative collaboration in the realm of contemporary dance.

The amount of the grant is intended to support part of the costs of the residency (insurance, travel, subsistence).
