Call for Body-workers, Dancers, Small Dance Groups and Choreographers
Five individuals/groups will be selected for a twelve-month subsidized studio-share residency at CAVE.
Due to scheduling changes this is a 5 and a half month residency. There are only two of these available.
The regular year residency will begin October 1 2012 to September 31 2012. Applications are not yet being accepted for the twelve month residency.
This studio space is 450 sq ft; with 16' - 11' high ceilings; pillar free; with a sprung, black marley floor, and an adjacent restroom. It is equipped with a CD/ipod player and speaker system. Sunlight filters through from overhead windows. No air conditioning, only fans. Good heating during the winter. Please note: this is not our white studio, it is the black studio in the back.
Resident artists will receive UP to 12 hours per week of rehearsal/private class space, bi-monthly inclusion of their activities on CAVE’s e-mail newsletter, access to Material for the Arts donated supplies, the use of two small camcorders and one video projector (in-studio use only) during the one-year period, all for a flat monthly fee of $270 USD.
Chosen artists will be responsible for self-management and keeping the studio clean.
Each artist will have 12 points per week to use the space. Every hour before 5pm counts as a one point, and every hour after 5pm, will count as one and a half points. All weekends hours are counted as a one and a half points. So you will be able to use the studio UP to 12 hours per week (48 hours per month).
The deadline to apply for this opportunity is: March 28th 2012. This Residency begins: April 15th, 2012 and ends September 30, 2012. Results will be announced April 2nd, 2012.
