 Ausdance NSW’s Dance Artist in Residence Program (DAIR) offers space residencies at various host venues for members of Ausdance NSW who are independent dance artists, collectives, or companies. DAIR is a direct response to the ongoing challenges of access to affordable and appropriate spaces to dance artists for the development of dance making and practice. DAIR activities may involve creative development, research, mentorship, rehearsal, and remounting of work. DAIR recipients in 2020 received a stipend for the duration of their residency which was supported by the Australia Council. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions and the closure of our venue partners, each artist had to adapt their residency as hey worked from home. Today’s conversation is between Alice Weber and Monica Blaszczak as part of a residency that was held online due to COVID 19 restrictions.

(DAIR 2020) This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
