We offer two artist’s residence during a period of three weeks. Each residence refers to 1-4 people.  

Location: Ronneby municipality, in eastern Blekinge.

The application is open to all professional dance and performing artists. We welcome new graduates as well as experienced artists, national and international. Those with connection to Blekinge are prioritized. In the selection process, greater emphasis is placed on the artistic idea and method, rather than experience.

 

Blekinge Dance Residence 2020

This year's theme is Human / Nature. Throughout the residence, Dance in Blekinge wants artists to make space to ask questions and create dialogue between place and people. The theme is a starting point, we are interested in your concepts and ideas. The participating artists are encouraged to work freely within the themes. We encourage you who are applying to base your application on the theme of the residence, but if you already have an idea of ​​what you want to work on, we would love to hear it and process your application with or without connecting it to the theme.

Dance in Blekinge likes to see that the artists are interested in experimental approaches, interdisciplinary work and social practice, with dance as the central point of view. This year, we also plan to partner with Land404, an artist residence that runs parallel, which can open up interesting opportunities and collaborations.
