|The Dance Omi International Dance Collective Is Accepting Applications for its Summer 2016 Residency
Application Deadline: Jan. 4, 2016
Residency Dates: July 19 – August 8, 2016
|For Immediate Release
Ghent, NY – The Dance Omi International Dance Collective is now accepting applications for its 12th Annual Dance Residency. Each summer, Dance Omi invites ten international dancer / choreographers to upstate New York for three weeks of artistic and cultural exchange. This year’s residency will take place July 19 – August 8, 2016 at the Omi International Arts Center in Ghent, New York.
Under the direction of Dance Omi Director Christopher K. Morgan and the 2016 Guest Mentor, Stephanie Miracle (Dance Omi alumna from 2012, from the USA but currently living in Germany), the selected group of ten highly accomplished, diverse dance artists will experiment, create, and collaborate in a facilitated, supportive setting. Although the Residency will include informal showings, it does not emphasize the creation of a final performance product; instead, it emphasizes the process of experimentation and collaboration.
Applicants active as both dancers AND choreographers, who work within any style of dance, are encouraged to apply. It is recommended that applicants do not come with specific projects in mind, but that they are open to working with others on jointly conceived projects. Applicants must have a genuine openness to collaborating with multi-national artists of diverse cultural, socio-political, linguistic and dance backgrounds.
More information, guidelines and the online application for the 2016 Dance Omi International Dance Collective can be found at: http://www.artomi.org/dance. The deadline to submit applications for the Summer 2016 Residency is January 4, 2016. Notification will take place by March 2, 2016.
