Distanced and Digital Dance Potentialities

Join our Artists in Residence
throughout August.

The Research Exchange is our annual Artist in Residence Programme. This year in response to the impacts of Covid-19, we invited collaborative teams to use the residency as an opportunity to explore digital opportunities for their work and practice.

This residency  supports artists to share their process with their peers and the public via their MAP webpages where the artists upload reflections, texts, images and videos throughout August; via Zoom workshops held on 10am - 12pm Saturdays on the 8th, 15th and 21st August as well as taking over the MAP Instagram.

Artist showings will be live-streamed 6.30pm Sunday 30 August to Youtube and we invite the public to attend live at the Audio Foundation in Auckland, XCHC in Christchurch and Dampfzentrale in Bern, Switzerland.

‘Less Sermon More Song’ [working title] builds a space for dialogue around mental health in dance. This team will ‘break ground’ on a digital space centered around the mental health and wellbeing of dancers; via a website and a podcast series they will begin the critically important, and much overdue, work of reflecting the lived experience of dancers.

‘A Live Annotated Encounter with my Archive’ “questions the porosity of the screen, which triggers a dim awareness of some kind of actual space or physicality behind the screen - a place or body you can’t see but you know is there”.

“There is a need not only to support dance companies but also the artists who are going to provide the dancers and choreographers for those companies in the future.”
