AiR2020 : Following a successful pilot programme in 2019,  ŻfinMalta - National Dance Company, is excited to offer 3 residencies between the months of March & June 2020.  

 

Located in the Mediterranean, Malta is a bilingual country, speaking both English and Maltese, with year-round sunshine.  Within this unique setting, and based at the ŻfinMalta studios on Valletta’s Grand Harbour - one of the most scenic harbours in the world - the National Dance Company offers national and international dance-makers a space for research and dialogue.  ŻfinMalta is looking forward to welcoming both experienced and emerging, Europe-based dance artists currently undertaking choreographic research to develop and explore their work further in a new context, providing the time and space for focus on the creation and development of work.

 

WHO ARE THE RESIDENCIES FOR?

ZfinMalta, is offering three residencies between April and June 2020 for local and Europe-based dance practitioners to further develop their choreographic research/practice. Each residency will run no longer than a week

 

These residency programmes are designed for choreographers, regularly creating work, who need to carry out research which will push the boundaries of their practice.

 

Choreographers from all dance backgrounds are encouraged to apply; whether their research is interdisciplinary, community-based, or dance practice based.

 

WHAT WILL BE PROVIDED?

ŻfinMalta will host the selected artists in their studios in the island’s capital, Valletta, which enjoy the inspiring view of the Grand Harbour, defined by a coastline of forts and churches in yellow limestone.

 

Made up of two studios, ŻfinMalta welcomes selected artists to work in their space between 10am - 6pm. 

 

ŻfinMalta studios are equipped with a sound system, air conditioning, storage space, bathrooms, showers and kitchen facilities as well as WiFi access.

 

We regret that ŻfinMalta’s studio is currently not wheelchair accessible.

 

WHAT IS REQUIRED FROM RESIDENCY ARTISTS?

An informal presentation or sharing of work in a format which suits the artist’s practice. The audience will be facilitated by ZfinMalta and the approach discussed with the artist. The company believes that this interaction with an audience is fundamental in the research stages of creating work.

 

Permission for ZfinMalta to film agreed parts of the residency

 

Inclusion of ZfinMalta logos and/or  ZfinMalta word credit on publicity (print and digital) for any future work which is developed from research undertaken during this residency.

 

FINANCE 

ŻfinMalta offer a token of €1000 for each residency.  €500 will be offered as a first token, to cover the cost of accommodation and flights for artists based outside Malta, whilst another €500 will be offered for use of travel in Malta and other expenses necessary for the duration of the residency.

 

50% of the token will be offered upon the signature of the residency agreement with the respective artists, whilst the other half of the token will be presented upon the start of the residency, both on presentation of invoice.

 

Local artists who may not need the token in order to cover flights and accommodation expenses, are asked to outline how the token would be used.  Artists may want to bring in other people to explore their research on or even bring in other people to document their process. Such applications of the token are eligible as long as they are included in the budget within the application form.

 

TIME FRAME

3 residencies are currently available, one residency per month for the months of April, May and June 2020.  The ideal dates for the artist must be outlined in the application and upon selection, will be discussed and finalised with the company.

 

ZfinMalta will put every effort to accommodate the preferred dates but this may not always be possible.

 

The deadline for application is Saturday 8th February 2020 (00:00)

 

Candidates should expect a first contact by the 21st February 2019 and ultimately, the chosen applications will be announced by the end of February 2019.

Professional experienced and emerging choreographers residing within Malta and based in Europe, who are regularly creating and researching dance.

Applicants must be over the age of 21

CPR - Center for Performance Research’s Artist-in-Residence (AiR) program seeks to support a wide range of artists from emerging choreographers to established companies, working within the various aspects of dance and performance. Since its inception in 2012, with the generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, CPR’s AiR Program has provided up to 15 artists per year (selected by invitation) with 100 hours of deeply subsidized rehearsal hours at advanced booking. In an effort to create a more inclusive and equitable selection process, we are piloting an open call application by a peer artist committee this year. The committee will review applications, and through a scoring and discussion process, select CPR’s AiRs for 2020. Using this approach, CPR aspires to increase visibility, opportunities, and resources for a diverse range of dance artists in the field.

Our 2020 AiR Program will provide 10 artists with an increase of deeply subsidized rehearsal hours (150) with advance booking privileges and a $1,000 stipend. Artists will have opportunities to share their current practice with the larger CPR and NYC dance communities, have several informal opportunities for community engagement, and receive complimentary time in the large studio to share their practice with other AiRs. 

CPR's AiR program is supported by Dance/NYC’s New York City Rehearsal Space Subsidy Program, an initiative made possible by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Additional funding generously provided by the Howard Gilman Foundation, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
