Punctum X Dancehouse are delighted to announce a two-part On Residence for a regionally-based dance artist/s to develop a new work experiment in 2024 in Bendigo, and in 2025 in Melbourne.

On Residence with Dancehouse is among several Punctum responses to our local and global collective experience of the pandemic and climate emergency demanding we connect and form stronger networks and deeper relationships. Dancehouse is supporting six regional residencies.

This paid opportunity is flexible and adaptable. It moves with you, your project and each of our specific contexts to support the research and development of your new dance project.

With the ability to expand in the future, Dancehouse and Punctum hope On Residence will become a key pathway for artists to develop work and/ or establish relationships and connections to communities, practices and partners. The program draws on our experience cultivating similar meaningful, long term alliances.

The PunctumXDancehouse On Residence opportunity is for regionally-based artists undertaking experiments that connect with one or many layers of place.

This On Residence opportunity offers 4-weeks over two parts:

Part 1 in 2024, is hosted by Punctum in association with Bendigo Venues and Events;
Part 2 in 2025 is hosted by Dancehouse (the dates of Part 2 are negotiable).

On Residence Part 1 and Part 2 each culminate in the On Residence artist/s offering a public presentation of aspects of their experiment.
