New for 2020

Our NEW Artists In Residence programme is a financially supported residency programme for experienced professional artists with a reputation for strong and distinctive choreographic practice. The programme invests in the development of a new production or the time to undertake specific choreographic research, that will result in a step-change for the artist and their practice.

The annual programme is designed to allow flexibility and can take between 3 – 6 weeks over a period of 18 months, to be scheduled to suit the artists’ needs. The artists may also benefit from access to a production space in the Patrick Studio at Birmingham Hippodrome.

We are interested in working with artists whose choreographic practice resonates with our artistic policy (see information pack) and whose residency promises an output within the performance or discourse events at DanceXchange or Birmingham International Dance Festival. This includes work for outdoor places, site-specific locations or studio theatre spaces.

In addition to the financial support and provision of time and space, the resident artists will benefit from mentoring and advice from the dx Artistic team and will also have access to guidance from the Marketing or Learning and Participation teams if desired.

Artists will need to commit to undertaking their residency at DanceXchange’s studios in the centre of Birmingham during the period October 2019 – March 2021. 

We actively encourage applications from artists from a diversity of backgrounds with different experiences, skills, perspectives and stories. We are particularly keen to hear from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and/or disabled and LGBTQ+ candidates.

The deadline for applications is Monday 2 September 2019, 12 noon. Please fill in the below application form and monitoring form to apply and return to
