2-week residency in Limerick, Ireland in 2020 to explore, research, experiment, produce or rehearse your work

Professional dance artists and ensembles are invited to submit proposals for projects to be researched and/or developed in 2020 at Dance Limerick's studio, or performance space, depending on the nature of the project. Residencies are open to Irish and international dance artists in all genres for a period of two weeks.

The Percolate Residency aims to provide professional dance artists with space and support for research, experimentation, practice development and/or performance of new work.
