Fresh voices in choreography: emerging artists redefining dance
For more than 80 years, the Harkness Dance Center has supported dance innovators — like José Limón, Pearl Lang, Eleo Pomare and Doug Varone — with residencies and space grants, and as a performance venue. The 92Y Artists in Residence program provides rehearsal space, a stipend and educational resources to support the creation and performance of new works, giving these artists a place to create, explore and share their vision with the Harkness audience.
We recently have expanded our Artists in Residence (AIR) program to include four choreographers at various stages of their careers. We invite audiences and other artists to learn more about the artistic process through community engagement events, open rehearsals and informal showings throughout the year.
To apply for the 2018-19 Artists in Residence program, complete the application. Deadline is April 30, 2018. A selection committee composed of 92Y Harkness staff and artists reviews all applications. AIRs for 2018-19 will be announced in mid-May 2018. Residencies run September 2018 through August 2019. Inquiries for more information may be sent to John-Mario Sevilla.
