THE DEADLINE HAS PASSED FOR THE 2017-18 EtM CHOREOGRAPHER + COMPOSER RESIDENCIES IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE JAMAICA CENTER FOR ARTS & LEARNING. 2017-18 CHOREOGRAPHERS AND COMPOSERS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED.  GUIDELINES AND APPLICATIONS ARE FOR ARCHIVAL PURPOSES.

Exploring the Metropolis (EtM) is sponsoring the third round of our Choreographer + Composer Residencies in partnership with the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning (JCAL).

This residency will provide four choreographer/composer teams (8 artists total) with use of consistent, suitable rehearsal space over a three-month period starting in October 2017 or January 2018 to develop and create new work. Each choreographer and each composer will receive a stipend of $1,500. There is no requirement to complete a piece of work during the residency. Each choreographer/composer team is required to perform one free public program in coordination with the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning.

Choreographers may apply individually without a composer. However, as this is primarily a choreographic residency, a composer MUST apply with a choreographer and cannot apply as an individual.

Choreographer applicants must be at least 18 years old. Applicants must be residents of New York City as of the application deadline, Thursday June 1, 2017 OR have a significant, documented track record of artistic activity in Queens. Queens residents will be given preference for this residency. Previous EtM Con Edison Composers-in-Residence are eligible to apply for this program.
