Art Omi: Dance / Deadline: January 2
Art Omi: Dance brings together ten accomplished dance artists from around the world for three weeks of creative exchange each summer. Residents experience each other’s creative process and the freedom to play in this collaborative residency program.
The emphasis of the Art Omi: Dance residency is not a performance product; rather, a gently facilitated process of experimentation and collaboration. This exploration is enhanced by providing resources that dancers and choreographers often lack: space, time and other artists with whom to work. The result is a model of creative process and community building that envisions consequences for the participants beyond the sphere of art making.
Informal showings each summer invite the public to experience the residents’ creative process, collaborations, and the development of their ideas.
Art Omi: Dance welcomes professional dancers and choreographers of all styles who have the desire to share ideas and process with dancers from around the world. Applicants should not have specific projects in mind, but should come open to working with others on jointly conceived projects. Applications for the summer residencies are accepted each winter.
Art Omi residency programs offer artists the vital opportunity of space and time to create. Lodging, meals and studio space on Art Omi’s beautiful 200-acre campus in the Hudson Valley are provided at no cost to the residents.
