Eadrainn / Between Us - International Residencies Call Out with Dance Ireland
Deadline: Friday 2 December 17:00
Funded by the Irish Arts Council’s International Residency Initiatives Scheme, Dance Ireland and Dance Base Scotland are delighted to work together to offer six, fully resourced reciprocal residencies for three Ireland-based and three Scotland-based artists as part of a programme of artistic and cultural exchange.
Eadrainn / Between Us is a new programme of creative exchange that will build on the existing relationship between Dance Ireland and Dance Base Scotland to provide an opportunity to connect artists across both organisations and countries, to share practice, and to develop an ecology of exchange and collegial support.
The project will take place over three weeks in March 2023 (6-24) and will provide three Ireland-based choreographers / makers with a week of residency space at Dance Base, Edinburgh, and three Scotland-based choreographers / makers with a week of residency space at Dance Ireland, Dublin.
During the residency the host organisation will support each artist with space and resources to develop their creative work, connect with the organisation and deepen their understanding of the other country’s dance sector. While the artists will work independently from each other, the residency weeks will be accompanied by a series of group conversations and moments of reflection where they can share their experience and learning.
The project will then culminate in a dance symposium in Ireland in April 2023 focusing on the continued exploration of artistic and cultural exchange. The content and form of this will be designed in response to conversation with and feedback from the six selected artists and the artists will be invited to attend and contribute to the conversations in person.
This is a unique opportunity for independent artists to develop their work in a new cultural venue while building a long-lasting creative relationship with the dance sector in Scotland or Ireland that will enable them to continue to work, present and exchange between the two countries in the future.
