Call for Proposals - TDT Creation Residency

Toronto Dance Theatre invites proposals from Toronto-based dance artists wishing to pursue a short Creation Residency at the Winchester St. Theatre, Toronto.

The theatre will be made available to successful applicants, free of charge, for the purpose of creative rehearsals during the weeks of May 29 - June 2, and/or June 26 - 30 (full schedule below). This is a great opportunity to research and create work in a large, bright theatre space.

Artists will have use of house rehearsal sound system and work light if necessary (the studio is very bright in June) but will not have access to theatrical lighting instruments. This is not a production residency.

  • A brief description of the project you will be working on (100 words max);
  • A link to an online example of your work;
  • Clearly specify, in order of preference, the times and dates that you would use the space. Projects can request multiple time blocks, which will be allocated to selected proposals according to preference and availability.
    • Monday May 29 - Friday June 2 from 9 AM - 1 PM
    • Monday May 29 - Friday June 2 from 1 - 5 PM
