AiR2020 : Following a successful pilot programme in 2019,  ŻfinMalta - National Dance Company, is excited to offer 3 residencies between the months of March & June 2020.  

 

Located in the Mediterranean, Malta is a bilingual country, speaking both English and Maltese, with year-round sunshine.  Within this unique setting, and based at the ŻfinMalta studios on Valletta’s Grand Harbour - one of the most scenic harbours in the world - the National Dance Company offers national and international dance-makers a space for research and dialogue.  ŻfinMalta is looking forward to welcoming both experienced and emerging, Europe-based dance artists currently undertaking choreographic research to develop and explore their work further in a new context, providing the time and space for focus on the creation and development of work.

 

WHO ARE THE RESIDENCIES FOR?

ZfinMalta, is offering three residencies between April and June 2020 for local and Europe-based dance practitioners to further develop their choreographic research/practice. Each residency will run no longer than a week

 

These residency programmes are designed for choreographers, regularly creating work, who need to carry out research which will push the boundaries of their practice.

 

Choreographers from all dance backgrounds are encouraged to apply; whether their research is interdisciplinary, community-based, or dance practice based.

 

WHAT WILL BE PROVIDED?

ŻfinMalta will host the selected artists in their studios in the island’s capital, Valletta, which enjoy the inspiring view of the Grand Harbour, defined by a coastline of forts and churches in yellow limestone.

 

Made up of two studios, ŻfinMalta welcomes selected artists to work in their space between 10am - 6pm. 

 

ŻfinMalta studios are equipped with a sound system, air conditioning, storage space, bathrooms, showers and kitchen facilities as well as WiFi access.

 

We regret that ŻfinMalta’s studio is currently not wheelchair accessible.

 

WHAT IS REQUIRED FROM RESIDENCY ARTISTS?

An informal presentation or sharing of work in a format which suits the artist’s practice. The audience will be facilitated by ZfinMalta and the approach discussed with the artist. The company believes that this interaction with an audience is fundamental in the research stages of creating work.

 

Permission for ZfinMalta to film agreed parts of the residency

 

Inclusion of ZfinMalta logos and/or  ZfinMalta word credit on publicity (print and digital) for any future work which is developed from research undertaken during this residency.

 

FINANCE 

ŻfinMalta offer a token of €1000 for each residency.  €500 will be offered as a first token, to cover the cost of accommodation and flights for artists based outside Malta, whilst another €500 will be offered for use of travel in Malta and other expenses necessary for the duration of the residency.

 

50% of the token will be offered upon the signature of the residency agreement with the respective artists, whilst the other half of the token will be presented upon the start of the residency, both on presentation of invoice.

 

Local artists who may not need the token in order to cover flights and accommodation expenses, are asked to outline how the token would be used.  Artists may want to bring in other people to explore their research on or even bring in other people to document their process. Such applications of the token are eligible as long as they are included in the budget within the application form.

 

TIME FRAME

3 residencies are currently available, one residency per month for the months of April, May and June 2020.  The ideal dates for the artist must be outlined in the application and upon selection, will be discussed and finalised with the company.

The deadline for application is Saturday 8th February 2020 (00:00)

all for Submissions: HERE Artist Residency Program (HARP)

Created 20 years ago to address a compelling need in the field—the void of artistic, administrative, and financial support for artists with certain professional accomplishments, but without breakthrough recognition—the HERE Artist Residency Program (HARP) assists artists who are developing distinct artistic voices and experimenting with new approaches that expand the parameters of performance work.

As one of the most robust residency programs of this nature in the country and serving as a national model, HARP provides a commission, developmental support, career planning, and a full production to cross-genre artists, within a collaborative environment of peers working across disparate art forms – including theatre, dance, music, puppetry, visual art, and new media. HARP provides significant long-term support, as well as $50,000 in cash and $50,000 in space, equipment, and services over 2-3 years to tailor each residency to each artist’s individual needs. Through significant investment of time and resources, dynamic work within a strong community is created.

“ChoreoLab – Made in Ulm 2020”. 249 Choreographic Failures.

Following the success of the choreographic works created, sold out performances and critical acclaim we are proud to announce our second open call for “ChoreoLab – Made in Ulm” in 2020. We are offering three choreographic residency opportunities to talented upcoming dance makers. This is an open call to choreographers up to 35 years young on the 21st of August 2020. We will commission talented emerging creators and give them the opportunity to conceptualise, create, execute and premier their work in a black box stage with four professional dancers. You will be collaborating with local choreographer Pablo Sansalvador to create an evening of dance inspired by this years theme and title: ‘249 Choreographic Failures’ (249CF).

The 2020 theme is in memory of Albrecht Ludwig Berblinger’s 250th birthday. Berblinger was an ingenious and a risk-taking inventor from Ulm. Better known as "Schneider von Ulm" he went down in history in 1811 for his failed flight attempt.
As part of the anniversary celebrations "Berblinger 2020” is generating artistic works based on innovation, inventiveness, courage and adaptability in our urban society. Berblinger’s resilience through failure is what defined him and what inspires us. “ChoreoLab – Made in Ulm” is honouring Berblinger by inviting dance makers to create choreography from a leaping off point that we constantly try to avoid; Failure.

We invite dance makers, choreographers, film-makers and artists to connect to create a 60 second short film demonstrating a ‘Choreographic Failure’. A jury will select 10 finalists of whom each will be awarded 100 euros for their efforts. Then the ten shortlisted films will be shared in a public space where people from Ulm can watch each film and vote for whom they would like to see awarded the residency. We have up to three one week residencies to offer. Be brave, there is no wrong way to fail.

How will the winners of the residency be selected?
A jury will select 10 finalists by the end of May and each will be awarded 100 euros. The ten finalist films will be displayed in a public space in Ulm's city centre and presented during the Ulm Moves Dance Festival in June 2020. Members of the public and dance aficionados will vote for up to three choreographers to create a short work representing ‘choreographic failure’ for ChoreoLab - Made in Ulm 2020.

Prizes: 

What does the residency offer?
-A fee for the creation of your work
-A travel budget to Ulm and local accommodation during your stay
-Four professional dancers to create the piece
-A creation week with a minimum of 32 hours rehearsal with the four dancers, inside the performance space
-A professional recording of your piece and a 60 second trailer
