Two Philadelphia dance artists will be invited to explore dance and other cultural resources, as research for their own creative work and professional growth, in a 3 week Residency in Budapest, Hungary this Fall 2017, from October 9 thru October 29.
The guest artists will be hosted by The Hungary Workshop Foundation. Artists are free to develop an open ended residency with activities that could include, creative time, informal studio showings of work, attending performances, meeting other artists, among other activities. BILATERAL artists receive housing, per diem and a small stipend. Roundtrip airfare is provided.
The BILATERAL Budapest/Philadelphia Dance Artist Residency Exchange is artist centered, but the intent is to reveal some of the experience of dance artists in both cities as well as build connections between the two artistic communities.

To date ten dance artists have participated in this unique 3 week artist residency exchange through partners Philadelphia Dance Projects (PDP), DanceUP (2012-2014) and the Hungary Workshop:
2012 Ferenc Feher, Katya Lengel/Budapest
2013 Tori Lawrence, Guillermo Ortega/Philadelphia
2014 Adrienn Hod, Judit Szamos/Budapest
2015 Nichole Canuso, Gabrielle Revlock/Philadelphia
2016 Anna Biczok, Imre Vass/Budapest

This special project is made possible with support from the Trust For Mutual Understanding http://www.tmuny.org
