Exchange residency Dance+
An artistic residence between four dance artists from Lithuania and Sweden, two from each country. The aim of the exchange residency is to explore the limits of movement beyond the normative canons of the stage and combine dance with unexpected activities/hobbies/occupations. Dance+ is a connection between contemporary dance and the artist's chosen activity – swimming, bread baking, knitting, or anything that is interesting and is relevant to the dance artist as a person. Another important element of this residency is creative and human resources exchanges between Swedish and Lithuanian artists. The residency will consist of two periods: Spending one week Vilnius, Lithuania, working in Art printing house dance studio, and one week in Region Västra Götaland, Sweden, location to be decided at a later date.
The residency does not have a fixed time period, it will be adjusted after the artists availability.
Included in the residency is a fee of 700 € per week (total 1400 €), accommodation, travel expenses, studio and two public presentations.
The residency is organised by Lithuania Contemporary Dance Association and the Cultural Development Administration, Region Västra Götaland, Sweden. Funded by Lithuania Culture Council and Region Västra Götaland.
The artists are Linda Wardal and Takuya Fujisawa from Sweden and Paulius Prievelis and Giedre Kirkilyte from Lithuania. They were selected by two representatives of Lithuania Contemporary Dance Association and two from Region Västra Götaland.
