Co3 Contemporary Dance Pathways Program IN RESIDENCE is an annual opportunity for mid-career choreographers or artists based in Western Australia. The initiative is founded on the Company’s philosophy of facilitating our next generation of artists, enriching artistic practice and relieving associated pressures in the pursuit of creating and presenting new work.   

IN RESIDENCE supports the final development and presentation of a full-length work in Co3's annual artistic program. All submissions will be assessed by the artistic programming panel and an invitation extended to the successful recipient by the Artistic Director. 

Over the next three years, with the generous support of the Wright Burt Foundation, each recipient will receive: 

  • In year one: a financial contribution of $10,000 for salaries and creative development.
  • In year two: a financial contribution of $40,000 for salaries, production and creative development.
  • A contribution towards studio and venue hire, production / stage management, and documentation.
