Website FABRIC (Dance4 and DanceXchange)

Dance4 and DanceXchange are merging to form a new single strategic organisation called FABRIC. FABRIC is launching a new residency programme to provide artists based in the UK with money, space, and staff time to explore new ideas and support the realisation of projects.

There will be two strands available to apply for:

This opportunity is for research into new ways of thinking about and doing dance, movement, and choreography with an emphasis on ideas that need time and space to explore, test and develop, rather than creation of new work. We are excited to receive proposals that have the potential to engage the public now in these processes.

This opportunity is for projects that have already undertaken research and development processes and could benefit from a residency to support the final stages of creation. The residency will include testing your work with a public and should lead to an outcome that can be presented from April 2023 onward as part of a wider tour, produced by you. Projects should already have other partners and funders involved.
