Course fee bursary for Certificate Programme for Critical Practice in Contemporary Performance with Dance Nucleus (Singapore) + two-weeks studio residency.

[CP]³ is an online academy for the development of critical praxes in contemporary choreography and performance making. The main aim of the 5-month programme is to help artists articulate and develop their own artistic practices.

In [CP]³, artistic praxis is seen as a holistic process of defining one’s research questions, outlining responses to one’s socio-political context, designing heuristic methods for artistic creation, proposing encounters with the public(s), and forwarding choreography as a vital discipline in the production of cultural knowledge. As a study programme, [CP]³ caters to dance and performance makers in the Asia-Pacific with several years of experience in choreographic creation and production, and who wish to deepen their experimental approaches to art making.

STRUT Dance offers one bursary to cover the course fee (S$1800) + two-weeks studio residency for one West Australian artist to take part in this critical practice program.

The selected artist will be part of a cohort from across Asia and will form valuable networks for intercultural exchange. STRUT Dance will also offer administrative support to the participating artist if they wish to organise local gatherings of artists to support their activities. This is an outstanding opportunity for an artist to deepen their practice and consider their work within a broader cultural context.
