The ResearchLab consists of up to four residencies per year. It is aimed at supporting dance by nurturing emerging choreographers to realize their ideas from concept to live performance.
Each ResearchLab provides 3 weeks of studio space, travel, a living allowance, a production budget and local accommodation for up to 5 artists in total. Through a national/international open call the selected "dance makers" are invited to co-produce the work created in the ResearchLab, to premier in our PerfomranceLab program. The ResearchLab powers imagination through dance, it champions innovative ideas and embraces risks. By creating optimal conditions for dance artists and establishing a dialogue with our audiences through open rehearsals, the ResearchLab provides greater awareness of the limitless potentials that dance has to connect and inspire.
