Resource (Banff): The Final Turning Dance Residency Winter 2023 – Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity

The Final Tuning dance residency provides two choreographers or dance companies with the time, space, and resources to advance an already developed work to the next stage.

The selected companies will receive access to a Banff Centre dance studio for 3 weeks. In the first week with support of our Director of Dance, Alejandro Ronceria and visiting Faculty, you will work on adjusting and solidifying the proposed project in the studio. During the second and third weeks, artists will have access to our newly renovated mainstage, the Jenny Belzberg Theatre, to begin implementing technical elements into the projects and work with our production teams.

To conclude the residency you will present a 60 minute work or work-in-progress to the public.

What does the program offer?
You will receive the support of Banff Centre’s dance faculty and production teams in applying final production elements to your existing project including lighting, live sound, projection, etc. Projects will enjoy hands-on engagement with the faculty – dramaturgy, choreography, sound composition, and other design – to assist in fine-tuning your work in progress to present a final production for a public audience.

Participants will gain experience honing their technical communication skills to see their vision from the imagination phase to the page and to the stage. This is a great experience to fine tune a show that may be looking to tour to a variety of venues.

Companies will also have the option to receive professional production photographs taken of the project to add to a portfolio.

Who should apply?
Emerging and/or established choreographers and established dance companies, working in any form, who are seeking to work on the finishing touches of their projects. You should have a project and 60-90 minutes of choreography almost entirely developed and want to work on layering in elements of lights, projections, sound, etc. to do a production of it on the stage. You are expected to have been working with a composer at this stage of the process and should be arriving with a developed score for their public performance at the end of the program.

We can only accept dance companies with up to 25 artists. Final Tuning invites applications from anywhere in the world, and artists of all ages, backgrounds, gender identities, and expressions.

*Financial Aid of 100% of the tuition fee and 50% of room and accommodation is available for this program.

Application Deadline: November 09, 2022
