Dance Limerick offers supported residencies to professional dance artists and choreographers to research and develop work in the beautiful surroundings of St. John’s Church dance space and studio throughout 2024.

The residency aims to support research, experimentation, practice development and/or creation of work.

Residencies are open to national and international dance artists in all dance genres and at any stage of their career.

The residency is for a one or two week period. It supports individual artists or a team of up to 4 artists/collaborators. Three-week residency proposals are also welcome but are less available than the two-week slots.

Dance Limerick will provide:

  • Two weeks in a large studio space from 10am-5pm Monday – Friday.
  • Accommodation for up to 4 artists/collaborators in studio apartments or artist friendly houses.
  • A contribution of €75 per week, per artist, toward living costs – payable to the lead applicant
  • Vouched receipted travel stipend up to a maximum of €200 per residency – payable to the lead applicant.

Dance Limerick has a particular interest in receiving applications from artists who will:

  • Engage with local artists (through classes, conversations, workshops, or performances).
  • Share their work through a proposed engagement – e.g. work-in-progress showing or discussions with local peers.
  • Cultivate connection with Dance Limerick for future work presentations or collaborations.

Deadline: 28 September 2023
