DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM

 

DAC's Research and Creation Program supports choreographers in their creative process and in their artistic development by providing suitable spaces where they can test new ideas, collaborate with their peers, share and network with the community.

Our Program aims to nurture the research, development and evolution of the choreographic signature of creators from all cultures and aesthetics. The fusion and exploration of styles is supported and encouraged, be it contemporary dance, ballet, contemporary ballet, street dance, just to name a few.

 

DAC's Research and Creation Program is distinguished by the pairing of each of the residency recipients with a mentor or consultant. The collaborating committee is made up of seasoned professionals (dramaturges, rehearsal directors, sound and light designers) who have loads of professional experience as well as extensive knowledge in their respective fields.
