New Opportunity for Choreographers and Composers in 2019:
Rabbit Island and The Rozsa Center Create Residency Program
The Rabbit Island Foundation and Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts announce a new 2019 residency opportunity: The three-week Choreographer and Composer Residency encourages collaboration between a choreographer and composer in a wild natural setting offering time, space, and financial support to explore environmental concerns through dance and music. The two applicants selected, one choreographer and one composer, will spend two weeks on Rabbit Island, then one week of studio time at the Rozsa Center, and their final work will be premiered as part of the Rozsa Center Presenting Series season in 2020-2021. An honoraria of $2000 USD will be awarded to both the choreographer and composer.
The opportunity is an open call available to anyone working in the fields of choreography and composition. The selection committee is made up of each organization’s directors, Rabbit Island alumni, and accomplished choreographers and composers. The deadline for applications is Friday, February 15th, 2019 at 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time. Awarded residents will be notified in early May, 2019. A complete application guide and online submission form can be found at http://www.rabbitisland.org/art.
Rabbit Island is a 91-acre wilderness island partitioned from the mainland by the largest body of freshwater in the world, Lake Superior. As such, the location provides artists a remote contextual challenge to create works which add to the evolving contemporary conversation of art and the environment. Since 2013 the Rabbit Island Residency open call for all disciplines has received over 1000 applications from 45 countries. The Choreographer and Composer Residency marks the Rabbit Island Foundation’s first focused residency and first collaboratively created residency with the Rozsa Center.
Rabbit Island Foundation President Rob Gorski states, “The Choreographer and Composer Residency contests the status quo. Rabbit Island exists to encourage the creative community to focus intensely on the most fundamental narrative of our age—the environment and the human relationship to it. This residency challenges applicants to take risks and create bold work challenging the assumptions of the cultural landscape created by previous generations of choreographers, composers, and thinkers. We presume that there exist more meaningful ways to contextualize music and dance to the evolving understanding of ethics within the Anthropocene. This residency offers time, space, and context to take a shot at precisely this.”
