More Than Dancing

New residency program by Dance House Lefkosia

Application Deadline: 20th of November 2022

Dance House Lefkosia invites artists to send their proposals for our new residency program
that focuses on community. The proposals could involve without being limited to a series of
workshops, performances, nights of poetry, film screenings, discussions in the garden,
educational programs, participatory events. We are welcoming proposals for new
productions as well as for already existing projects adapted for this program.

The events should be created for non-artistic audience, specific age groups (e.g toddlers,
teenagers, 60+) and/or social groups (eg parents, refugees, people with disabilities). There is
no limitation to the concept or the style. The program’s aim is the inclusion of people
interested in artistic engagement but did not have any interaction with dance or the Dance
House yet. Very important element is to have regular events/meetings starting from the
following February until the end of the 2023.

The selected proposals would be realized in collaboration with the Dance House and will
receive 2000 euros for their participation in the program with the possibility of mentoring.
We will select two proposal one of which to be focusing on people under 18 years old.

The audience outreach will mainly be the artists responsibility. The organization and
promotion of the events will happen in collaboration with the Dance House. The audience
participation fee, if any, will be discussed with the artistic director of Dance House Lefkosia.
Any income received from the public events will be shared between the artists and the
Dance House.

The selected artists will not be able to apply for the On Bodies Festival 2023. However, they
will participate in the frame of Future Bodies with a short discussion/presentation.
