Creation, research and rehearsal residencies in Toulouse, France.

The notion of “development” is the driving force of CDCN – La Place de la Danse. Development applies to: creation (of artistic residencies, production), professional training (Extensions – a two year training programme), and enabling a culture of choreography for audiences. Every year, CDCN Toulouse co-produces and offers residencies to 15-20 artistic teams.

Residency programme

The programme is established baesd on the demand from companies, selected according to the interest in their project, its feasibility, the quality of the participants, the presence of other partners, etc. Residencies are not necessarily linked to presentation.

Residencies are usually short-term - one to two weeks in length - and are made to host about 20 teams per season. Residencies can be for research, creation, rehearsal/cast replacement, re-creation.

Residencies can include use of premises (studio), accommodation, and possible financial support (coproduction or support for the residency costs or travels/food). This needs to be listed in your application.

2021 Applications

The call for residencies between 4 January and 17 December 2021 is open until 30 June 2020.

Download the call for application in French or English on the website of La Place de la Danse.
