Choreographic research is vital in the creation of Australian dance projects. It creates new forms and delivers a truly Australian voice to Dance practice and performance. Dance artists need time to explore their ideas in the studio.
As the home for Independent Dance in South Australia we serve the dance community by providing professional development and studio space to Artists and their creative teams to create and make inspired new works: to test, re calibrate and evolve art.
The Dance Hub is a new vision for research and creative development – where Independent arts and artists flourish and new creative ideas are born.
Our Artists In Residence (AIR) are the life-force of Dance culture in Adelaide and residencies allow for the creation, research and development of new work.
We need your help to extend the reach of our AIR program to encompass support for two South Australian artists to be in residence at Tasmania’s premier dance company, Tasdance in the second half of 2018.
Here are just some of the reasons these residencies are important for the development of dance in South Australia:
– the artists will have uninterrupted time to focus – away from the daily life and pressures of outside work/jobs in Adelaide.
– the artists will have access to Increased networking – and the opportunity to collaborate with new artists in Tasmania.
– the artists will gain new perspectives: Being in a new place promotes reinvigorated perspectives of one’s practice and development.
At the conclusion of each residency there will be showing of the work in progress.

“The residency in which Seeta Patel and I undertook at LWDance Hub welcomed a number of results………… it gave us the opportunity to continue our international collaboration, by offering us space and time to develop our new dance theatre work Not Today’s Yesterday.”
