Dancing Labs are residency environments that bring together two or more artists who normally do not have the time or privilege to be in dialogue. A Dancing Lab is a space for rigorous play and positive failure around an issue, idea, or field-wide trend.
The Dancing Lab model helps NCCAkron subvert the prevailing lottery system approach to supporting artists. Connecting across geographical distances and subsidizing creative time without an expectation of a final product, artists share their working knowledge with each other and develop new ideas through body-based studio practice, personal introspection, and group reflection.
PAST DANCING LABS
NCCAkron’s social media and its monthly digital newsletters share inspiration, opportunities and insight on what’s happening at the Center and in the field.
