IN.HOUSE annually gives the opportunity for five independent WA dance makers to explore concepts for choreographic work. It is an initiative to support the development of work which can be considered for our IN.RESIDENCE program. 

At the completion of the week, you will present your work in a studio showing hosted by Co3, at our performance home State Theatre Centre WA.

IN.HOUSE supports the beginning ideas of work. 

Makers are encouraged to work with Co3 Artistic Director Raewyn Hill to reflect on, expand and interrogate their current practice.  

Successful Applicants will receive:

  • A fee of $2,000.
    The fee could cover their choreographer fee, any performer fees (development and performance), composer fee/ APRA, costumes and props. 
  • Co3 support with 40 hours of studio space for creative development
    Plus, v
    enue hire for production week and season, in-kind marketing support, PM/SM fees during season, mentorship from Co3 Artistic Director / Artistic Associate as required.
  • A studio showing opportunity at Co3’s performance home at State Theatre Centre WA.  

How the $2k is spent is at the discretion of the choreographer and should factor in what they personally want to achieve with the IN.HOUSE opportunity. It is not expected that the showing will be a polished work, rather an informal studio showing of small works alongside other recipients.
