Choreographic Lab, Exploration and Research
May 13-18, 2018
Deadline to apply April 5, 2018
Presented by Mocean Dance in partnership with the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts, CLEaR Forum – Choreographic Lab, Exploration and Research Forum – is a residency-based choreographic research lab that takes place in rural Nova Scotia. The program provides two choreographers with a skilled support team, studio space for the duration of the week, a forum for dialogue and exchange, 1 to 3 skilled dancers to work with, and a small stipend.
CLEaR Forum is intended as a collective artist residency focused on exchange and community suitable for emerging to mid-career Canadian-based dance artists. The lab will provide choreographers the opportunity to question and progress their art making in an intimate, yet rigorous and engaging forum to work within. With an aim to contribute to the growth of all participating artists, both choreographers and dancers participate in the morning programming and evening discussions. Through facilitated dialogue, led by the mentor team, discussions will be held to address the day’s work, support arising questions, and consider the diversity of art-making practices.
The Lab will take place in the picturesque setting of the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts, in Canning NS.
