The Research Series is a residency program designed to support the kinesthetic and choreographic inquiries of artists from all disciplines engaging in dance and/or movement-based research by providing resources such as artists fees, studio space, and public presentation and discussion opportunities. The purpose of the residency is to allow for in-depth research, critical thinking, risk-taking, professional development, skill enhancement and an exchange of ideas, without the pressure of a finished work or conclusion.
Two (2) artists or artistic teams will be selected to participate in the 2022 Research Series via the following application process. No less than one (1) of these teams will be Manitoban-led, and up to one (1) of these teams will be out-of-town-led. The Residency will take place in Winnipeg, MB. We encourage applicants from local and national contexts to apply. *YLDE is happy to provide letters of support for selected out of town artist(s) seeking additional funding to cover travel and living costs while in residence.
