STRUT Dance provides ongoing opportunities for Australian dance artists, supporting the development of choreographic methodologies and the creation of new work. A key component of this support for artists is STRUT’s SEED residency program.

Since 2007, STRUT’s SEED residencies have offered choreographers financial and administrative resources to explore new concepts, and begin new artistic projects. In this way STRUT works to ‘SEED’ new projects for performance.

Since becoming a national organisation, STRUT’s SEED residency program has expanded to include artists working across the country. However, in line with our State to Federal government funding ratio, and our ongoing commitment to WA artists, our 4 x annual SEED residencies are awarded as follows:

- 3 x SEED residencies to WA choreographers (minimum)

- 1 x SEED residency to interstate choreographers

STRUT has joined forces with ilDance in Sweden and it is now possible to undertake your 2018 residency with this organisation. Visit ilDance for more information on our newest partner.
