INTEGRATED ARTIST RESIDENCY EXCHANGE (THE I-ARE):
For more information about the I-ARE program and application.
The Dance Complex is seeking artist partners whose own vision, like ours, is turned toward next steps. The artist would be in residence for 10-‐12-‐week periods throughout the year, with an initial artist residency beginning September 2013. Artists would be afforded space for both studio and administrative use to further their own explorations. Applicants whose intended focus intersects with a need of The Dance Complex community will be given special consideration. A key goal for a successful residency exchange is that the artist, The Dance Complex and the wider community benefits from the knowledge and practice of the other is. The artist/s will be asked to share outcomes of their work from their time while in residence with the community and the public through dialogue, performance or other means. Applications will be available no later than July 8 and due by August 12 with a fall residency beginning in September.

Process/Performance/Production: Mentoring has long been a tradition in dance and at The Dance Complex. A new choreographic/production/administration laboratory will be added to our fall line up. The lab will be open to choreographers, dancers and those interested in any aspect of producing dance work including technical, design, translation (pr/marketing, graphics, writing about dance…). Interested individuals will apply with written statement of goals, and submit a work sample appropriate to their main interest. Class size will be limited, and participants will be chosen to create a group with a balance of skills and interests, so diverse genres and those with multiple perspectives on dance are most welcome. Each session of the lab will include segments on choreographic tools, production and design, and administrative/business tools and strategies for producing work. While each participant might have a main focus, all participants will take part in all aspects of the workshop for a maximum cross learning experience.
The lab will be facilitated with an eye to current practices and collaborative learning, lead by guest mentors working in the field alongside staff.
Work developed in the lab will have the potential to be nominated by involved mentors and staff to be performed in a produced concert at The Dance Complex, continuing the process through to production. All involved in the lab will participate in the producing of the works in concert.
Applications will be available no later than July 15 and due by August 30. The series of workshops will begin meeting on Sunday, September 8 and continuing through September 29. The produced concert will take place on October 18, 19.

WORKSTUDY PROGRAM at the DANCE COMPLEX
WORK STUDY PROGRAM EVOLVES TO DIMENSIONAL LEARNING EXCHANGE:
Participants in our revamped program (we’re working on a name…maybe you’ll have a suggestion?) will continue to be a vital life force and take on different roles at The Dance Complex in exchange for classes. With the new program, we will engage participants on a deeper level, creating applied areas of engagement. Those involved will have the benefit of working with staff on areas of interest -‐ administration, production, artistic process, for example -‐ and attend monthly gatherings designed especially for them. There will also be an opportunity to share individual skills with others in the program and with The Dance Complex, building a network of collaboration with and among each other.
Informational and idea-‐gathering meeting: Sunday, July 28, 6:45p
If you have any questions please contact the WorkStudy Coordinator at 617.547.9363 X11.
