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 longitudinal support to artists for research and experimentation through access to thinkers in other fields.
Provide the opportunity for artists to focus on technical or theatrical aspects of new work.
Reach beyond traditional limitations of time, space, and place to support choreographic research of artists wherever they are.
