The Choreographer In Residence

Chunky Move in partnership with the Tanja Liedtke Foundation

Calling for applications to be the company’s inaugural Choreographer In Residence

The introduction of this major new initiative extends our commitment to supporting established, independent choreographers to develop their careers over an extended 2-year period.
This initiative, developed by Chunky Move and supported through the generosity of the Tanja Liedtke Foundation, is a singular opportunity for choreographic artists in Australia.

The Choreographer In Residence will be supported to develop and present new work, further their artistic practice, gain organisational knowledge, extend their professional networks and build a meaningful and long-standing connection with Chunky Move. This program is neither a fellowship nor a direct commissioning opportunity, rather it is intended to create a structure that balances creative flexibility with clear outcomes across the residency period.

The Choreographer In Residence will receive:

- A stipend of $40,000 per year for two years
- A dedicated production budget to enable the realisation of a new work
- Regular access to Chunky Move’s studios and office
- Extensive opportunities for structured and informal professional and practice development

The Choreographer In Residence will be encouraged to work with Chunky Move as part of an integrated expansion of their own practice. Through an initial Expression of Interest process, we are asking applicants to respond to questions that consider what this might look like in practice. Proposals should be relevant to your interests and thoughtfully reflect on the potential impact this opportunity might have on your art making, now and into the future.

Detailed information, FAQs, and ways to get in contact can be found on our website by clicking the link below. Additionally we will be holding a live stream Zoom Q&A on Monday 14 September, please register below.

Applications close at midnight on Friday 2 October 2020.
