A facilitated 1-week exchange program in Boorloo with self-identifying mid-career artists led by Sam Fox

Led by artist Sam Fox the lab will investigate embodied approaches to choreography, sustainable practices and the social-political tensions that inhere within the work, the body and choreographic relationships.

Participants will take part in peer-to-peer exchange, active choreographic experimentation and dialogue in a range of forms/disciplines (talking, writing, reading, drawing, notating, recording, encoding, decoding…).

Places in the lab are capped at 7. Artists will be paid a stipend ($1145.70) to take part in the laboratory. Participants should either reside in WA (lived in WA for 6 of the past 12 months) or have a relationship to WA.

Application form with assessment criteria can be found here.

The mid-career laboratory is for choreographers who have been practicing for 5+ years.
You must be a STRUT member to apply.
There are 7 available places in the laboratory—2 are reserved for STRUT’s Mid-Career Resident Artists Rachel Arianne Ogle and Kathleen Szalay Mulholland.

There are 2 x $1000 travel bursaries for travel and accommodation expenses available to regionally-based artists or artists living outside of Western Australia who have an existing relationship to the state. The laboratory is predominantly for WA choreographers, meaning that you have been residing in WA for 6 of the past 12 months.

EOIs for 2023 are closed.
