MOVING THE NEW
The residency programme has at its core the artistic development in the field of performing arts. The programme serves the goals of the Dance House Lemesos that focus on encouraging the continuous progress of local choreographers, dancers, artists from the field of performing arts, audience development and the participation of the artists within the broader European dance scene.
The programme supports the development of experimental and cross-disciplinary art and invites emerging as well as mature professional artists who live in Cyprus to submit their proposals. Proposals may concern the creation or the development of a current idea, a solo or collaborative work that critically investigates, challenges, and extends the existing norms and practices of performing arts. The invitation is also open to artists who had previously been selected for the programme.
Apart from the annual residency programme, Dance House Lemesos has been offering residencies for artists (both local and international) through their participation in several European programmes like ‘E-Motional Bodies and Cities’, ‘Act Your Age’, ‘Leim’, ‘Micro Macro Dramaturgies in Dance’ and through Open House Festival.
