Luail – Ireland’s National Dance Company, with the Irish World Academy at University of Limerick, invites applications from dance artists who are based in Ireland, for the Activating Archive Residency, in partnership with the National Dance Archive of Ireland and the Irish Arts Center, New York.

The residency, which will take place in November (US) and December (Ireland), is also in association with Our Steps in New York, The Jerome Robbins Dance Division of The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and Solas Nua, in Washington, D.C.

With the Irish World Academy, Luail is creating a fully-supported, multi-faceted residency opportunity for a dance artist to spend time immersed in various dance archives across multiple genres. The selected dance artist will be encouraged to engage with the materials for their own research purposes, or to work on developing a response – either choreographically or through further artistic documentation.
