Technology, the Body, and Choreography
Free residency at Lake Studios Berlin sponsored by TroikaTronix – Mark Coniglio
We invite dance makers invested in the field of technology to apply for this special 4 - 6 week residency hosted at Lake Studios Berlin between July 1 – August 15 2018

We look for work that uses technology to expand or intervene in the body’s performative and choreographic possibilities while keeping the human body in the foreground of the work.

- A description (no more than 500 words) of what you would like research and develop during the residency
