Budapest/ Philadelphia
Dance Artist Residency Exchange


Download application here.

Two Philadelphia dance artists will be invited to explore dance and other cultural resources, as research for their own creative work and professional growth, in a 3 week Residency in Budapest, Hungary this Fall 2017, from October 9 thru October 29.
The guest artists will be hosted by The Hungary Workshop Foundation. Artists are free to develop an open ended residency with activities that could include, creative time, informal studio showings of work, attending performances, meeting other artists, among other activities. BILATERAL artists receive housing, per diem and a small stipend. Roundtrip airfare is provided.
The BILATERAL Budapest/Philadelphia Dance Artist Residency Exchange is artist centered, but the intent is to reveal some of the experience of dance artists in both cities as well as build connections between the two artistic communities.

To date ten dance artists have participated in this unique 3 week artist residency exchange through partners Philadelphia Dance Projects (PDP), DanceUP (2012-2014) and the Hungary Workshop:
2012 Ferenc Feher, Katya Lengel/Budapest
2013 Tori Lawrence, Guillermo Ortega/Philadelphia
2014 Adrienn Hod, Judit Szamos/Budapest
2015 Nichole Canuso, Gabrielle Revlock/Philadelphia
2016 Anna Biczok, Imre Vass/Budapest

This special project is made possible with support from the Trust For Mutual Understanding

Dance Games for Engagement and Empowerment with Bethany Formica

October 30, 2016 - 1:00pm

Join in for dance games that develop community and communication skills, and encourage all players to have a blast. Adaptable to multiple settings and ages, from school and studios to open events, from children to adults. We’ll be passing pulses, blowing kisses, tiptoeing and moving rhythmically through the space. Forget about technique for a bit, put on your thinking caps and turn off your serious self.

Trio A - a workshop with Pat Catterson

October 15, 2016 - 1:00pm
October 16, 2016 - 1:00pm

What can be learned today from Yvonne Rainer’s 1966 influential work Trio A? Fifty years later, the impact of Rainer’s revolutionary ideas and work is still evident in the current choreographic scene. Although Rainer’s famous “No Manifesto” was not written about Trio A, this dance is a manifesto in itself. Its form, vocabulary, and performing stance challenged traditional choreographic methods and modes of presentation.
