PILLAR Choreography Residency

The PILLAR Choreography Residency is a process driven residency that allows professional artists the opportunity to work without the limitations of producing a product through a space grant.  The space grant will be given at BODYART Studio in Long Island City.

PILLAR will begin August 1st 2010 and will grant 4 artists 6 hours of free rehearsal space each week for 5 weeks. During this time artists may use the space, but are not limited to, exploring within their given discipline, collaborating with other artists, and researching for an upcoming project. With exploration at the heart of the residency, the focus of the studio grant is to allow artists to work in new and varied ways. PILLAR does not support the space use for auditions, classes or events. PILLAR is open to artists from across the board, including choreographers, visual artists, installation artists, musicians etc., and is available to artists at all stages of their career.


BODYART STUDIO furthers BODYART Dance Company’s ongoing mission of serving the dance and art community by providing affordable rehearsal space. This 1800 sq/ft space differs from many existing spaces by centering on a “process driven” approach, allowing artists from several different disciplines access to onsite storage, easy parking, and freight elevators. BODYART STUDIO is suitable for rehearsals, auditions, classes, workshops, photo shoots, showings and events. The studio is equipped with portable ballet barres, cd/ipod players, an upright piano, storage space and vaulted ceilings suitable for some types of aerial work. 

- open to any artist who has access to the studio in Long Island City August 1st – September 4th regardless of where their permanent residence lies.
- open to artists at any stage in their career: emerging, established etc.
- artists from any discipline are eligible to apply
