  • At The Place, our unique ecology of dance training and artist development allows us to offer artists at every stage of their career the chance to experiment and take risks.

    Through  Choreodrome, our annual residency programme, experienced makers are encouraged to explore new artistic territory without the pressure of creating a finished product. 

    As we move through this period of global, societal challenges, we are working with these questions:  

    • How can dance help us respond to the big questions facing society – social and racial injustice, care and wellbeing, ecological sustainability, and more?  

    • How can both live and online dance experiences create new connections with audiences and participants locally, nationally and globally? 

    • How are fruitful relationships between artists, organisations, audiences, and participants maintained, deepened and expanded?   

    • What can new models of sustainability and ethical stewardship of resource look like in the cultural sector?   

    With these questions in mind, we invite artists to apply for the Choreodrome Research Residencies via this open call. We are keen to hear from people who are interested in tackling these questions in their work and their practice and also from artists who are looking to work with their own, different artistic questions.  

    The  next  edition of  Choreodrome  will run from Mon 19  Jul - Sun  19  Sep 2021.  

    The Choreodrome Research Residencies allow artists to develop their own choreographic work or ideas. Artists will receive studio space and be invited to take part in work in progress sharings and weekly lunch-time get-togethers, as well as receiving £1200. Artists from any discipline who wish to research an idea that has choreography or dance as a key component are welcome to apply. If you are working with Hip Hop, you may also apply for the Artists 4 Artists Programme.  

    For details and how to apply for the  Choreodrome  Research Residencies clickHERE.   

    If you have any questions about Choreodrome Research Residencies, including queries about the Artists 4 Artists strand, we will be holding an Open Clinic from 4-5pm on Thu 7 Jan via Zoom. If you would like to reserve a place at the Open Clinic please email    

    Deadline to apply for  Choreodrome  Research Residencies:  Mon 25 Jan 2021 at  midnight.
