Bilateral Exchange



Budapest/Philadelphia Dance Artist Residency Exchange

Application for 2017 download here. Deadline July 24th, 2017.

To date ten contemporary dance artists have participated in a unique 3 week artist residency exchange through Philadelphia Dance Projects (PDP) in partnership with DanceUP and the Hungary Workshop Foundation:

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

Nichole Canuso and Gabrielle Revlock traveled to Budapest in the Fall of 2015 for a 3 week residency that included attending the L1 Festival, taking workshops and classes with local and other guest artists, sharing their own work and artistic ideas with others, attending other performances, having creative time and space, and meeting presenters. It was a full and satisfying experience that accomplished the objectives set forth by each of the artists as well as exceeding their expectations. 

“It was exciting to look around the audience at the performance and see so many faces… all people that we’d met over the past 2.5 weeks.  I realized how many people we’d connected with in such a short period of time.”

“… we both recognized that one important entry point is embracing someone else’s vision, becoming part of a mini community… and the two workshops we took allowed that to happen in just the right way.” 

“By being in a new environment my work is changed. I notice the aesthetic preferences of the community [that] I am entering and I engage with those aesthetics. I consider how the people in it might receive my work and when I then show work I receive feedback that I take with me.”

PDP partners with the Hungary Workshop Foundation.

This special project is made possible with support from the Trust For Mutual Understanding and DanceUSA.
