Industry Listing, Submission.

Deadline: Friday, February 7, 2020 at 5 PM

Are you a Toronto-based dance artist with the spark of an idea you would like to explore?

Through Toronto Dance Theatre's Creation Residency Program, local dance artists have the opportunity to research and create in our large, bright theatre space. During the weeks of June 15 and June 22, 2020 (full schedule below), the Winchester Street Theatre will be made available free of charge to successful applicants for choreographic research. The Creation Residencies are an integral part of TDT's commitment to supporting the professional development of Toronto's dance artists.

We welcome applications from professional Toronto artists working in any movement form and make space for dance artists and dance forms that are marginalized.

NB: This is not a technical residency. Please read the following conditions carefully to make sure that a creation residency will serve your needs.

Artists will have use of a rehearsal sound system and work light (the theatre is very bright in June), but will not have access to theatre lighting or other technical elements or support, and it will not be possible for sets, props or costumes to be stored in the theatre. The theatre grid cannot support rigging for aerial work. Footwear that leaves marks or may cause damage cannot be worn on the dance floor. The Winchester Street Theatre is unfortunately not barrier-free.

Applications must be submitted electronically. To apply, please submit the following to (subject line: Creation Residency 2020) by Friday, February 7, 2020 at 5 PM:

  • A brief description of the project you will be working on (100 words max);
  • A link to an online example of your work on YouTube or Vimeo with any passwords
  • The times and dates, in order of preference, that you would like to use the space:
    - Monday June 15 - Friday June 19, 2019 from 9 AM - 1 PM
    - Monday June 15 - Friday June 19, 2019 from 1 PM - 5 PM
    - Monday June 22 - Friday June 26, 2019 from 9 AM - 1 PM
    - Monday June 22 - Friday June 22, 2019 from 1 PM- 5 PM
