Boston, Massachusetts

In addition to our now established year-long Boston Dance-makers Residency program, Boston Center for the Arts has added a layer of artistic development in the form of our Dance Lab to further broaden support for more local dancers and dance-makers.

This residency offers choreographers and dancers the opportunity to further research and revise works that address pressing issues and reflections on humanity. Through a series of open rehearsals, the artists create a feedback loop with mentors and those impacted or involved in the addressed topic.

Dance Lab at BCA supports a handful of dance-based artists to continue to explore and develop existing work through the lens of process extending beyond the initial premiere of a work. Resources such as rehearsal space, industry advocacy, and dramaturgical support will be tailored for each dance-maker’s needs and point of their artistic arc.

The current 2022–2023 season of Dance Lab supported artists to further work focused on climate change, physics, emotions attached to simple human tasks and the ever-shifting landscape of love, featuring work from Audrey MacLean, Laila Franklin, and Wendy Jehlen. Throughout their time on BCA’s campus, each dance-maker will invite guests and colleagues to share feedback on their work through a series of studio visits and open rehearsals.

This program is open to a range of dance genres and movement-based artists. We welcome applications from choreographers based in the Greater Boston area (within route 495). Artists of color, artists with disabilities, artists whose original work is based on culturally specific dance forms, and those working in non-proscenium formats are encouraged to apply.

Artpil periodically publishes submitted announcements of outside opportunities we do not administer. We recommend researching further prior to submitting, especially if entry fees are required.

    Strictly brunettes. Indeed brunette one, brunette the other.
    Capricious by poetics the first by birth, smooth as a straight line the second. The birthplaces of both are Parthenopean. As for one rooted on the cliffs of Posillipo where she also spent the resilient months of the recent Pandemic, while the other belongs to that blood material that protrudes into the vessel of the great swarming artery of Via Foria and its labyrinthine environs, where she still resides.
