NCCAkron knows that artists/companies each have their own creative process. With the space, time, and resources we can invite individual artists/companies to co-design a residency experience unique to their needs. The following represents general ways in which we support artists in their research, dreaming, development, and creation of dance-based work.
Offer development resources for artists to experiment, play and explore the realization of new work, usually in a studio.
Provide the opportunity for artists to focus on technical or theatrical aspects of new work.
Provide longitudinal support to artists for research and experimentation through access to thinkers in other fields.
Reach beyond traditional limitations of time, space, and place to support artists wherever they are to continue their choreographic research.
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.
