Four weeks of toiling and sweating in studio and theatre where makers are stepping in a new adventure. In that period, Dansmakers Amsterdam is a laboratory for innovation in dance and performance art.
Out of all applications, each year four choreographers are selected with their research project for a residency period. They are challenged to return to the core of their artistic practice. Ideas are further explored and deepened and there is space for experimentation and reflection. The period ends with a short public performance, in which the makers connect with the audience and provide context to work.
The selected artists 17/18 are Riccardo Guratti, Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen / Andrea Zavala Folache, Keren Rosenberg / Charlie Prince and Jésus de Vega.
From 11 November to 9 December Riccardo Guratti, Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen /Andrea Zavala Folache are at work in the studios with a public presentation on 9 and 10 December.
From 2 January 2018 on, Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen/Andrea Zavala Folache & Keren Rosenberg/Charlie Prince will be Residents, with a presentation on 3 & 4 February.
