THE DEADLINE HAS NOW PASSED FOR THE 2019-20 EtM CHOREOGRAPHER + COMPOSER RESIDENCIES IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE JAMAICA CENTER FOR ARTS & LEARNING. THE APPLICATIONS AND GUIDELINES BELOW ARE FOR ARCHIVAL PURPOSES.

THE 2019-20 AWARDEES WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN LATE JUNE/EARLY JULY 2019. 

 

2018-19 JAMAICA RESIDENTS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED.

 

Exploring the Metropolis (EtM) is sponsoring the fifth 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 2019 or January 2020 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. Dance collectives, collaborative choreography groups, or companies are also welcome to apply.

Choreographer applicants must be at least 18 years old. Applicants must be residents of New York City as of the application deadline, Monday, April 15, 2019 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.

 

All applications must be received by 5:00 PM Eastern Time, Monday April 15, 2019.
