    In response to the ongoing challenge of accessible space for the development of dance practice, Tracks is again offering an opportunity for Northern Territory dance artists to use our dance studio, free of charge, to work on contemporary choreographic development, either through research or development.

    Why not make the most of this wet season to work in our air-conditioned studio. Availability will be organised in consultation around Tracks Dance’s scheduled working periods. There is no requirement to complete a work. However, there will be a showing and forum of the artist’s development with a small group of industry peers.

    This residency is not for commercial practice, such as classes or for rehearsals for funded projects. Dance artists of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. There is no money attached to this opportunity.

    Criteria
    Successful artists are chosen on the basis of the quality and innovation of work, and the potential benefits to the applicant and to the broader community. Decisions are ultimately subject to the availability of the studio.

    The number of successful applicants will depend on studio availability and time requirements of applicants, as well as:
    • Calibre of artist / collaborating artists.
    • Clear articulation of concept, rationale and process.
    • Benefit of receiving the Studio Residency at this point in the development of a work OR to developing their practice.
    • Benefit to the broader community.

    A great Christmas present for Tracks dance. Why not support us by pledging money for our 2013 Festival show - Zombies in the Banyan Tree. Tracks Dance needs you!  Yes you!

    We are seeking funding in order to bring Dewa Soma - gamelan player and musician from the Bina Remaja Troupe -  to Darwin to be part of the creative development and performance of Zombies in the Banyan Tree. Zombies is a youth focused, outdoor site specific performance where traditional Balinese, break and contemporary western dance and music forms collide. Zombies explores our fast changing cultural landscape and the excitement and fear that comes when popular culture and long held traditions clash and merge.

    Our aims for the project are to:

    • Forge new relationships with Balinese cultural workers which will lead to the creation of choreography, cultural content and music for the Zombies in the Banyan Tree performance
    • Build long-term collaborative relationships with cultural institutions in Bali to encourage and support future exchanges
    • Engage with the local Indonesian community and ensure that Tracks staff and the company in general are more informed about the cultural life of contemporary Bali through a series of workshops and masterclasses.

    This project will strengthen the relationships between performance practitioners in both Bali and Darwin and showcase the music and dance created as a result of these new connections. We aim to bring together a mix of traditional and contemporary dancers, choreographers and musicians, as well as filmmakers and cultural leaders to guide this project and ensure that it has cultural integrity and relevance both in the Australian and Balinese context.

    We are seeking a total of $5,000 and we only get it if we reach this amount, otherwise all donated money gets returned to the donor.

    Go to pozible.com   Click the green 'support project' box and follow the prompts. It's that easy. We will be forever grateful to you.
