Bora Bora


Bora Bora Residency Centre welcomes proposals once a year through our open call. The programme is open to professional dance artists for projects to be researched and/or developed. The residencies are open to professional dance artists or dance ensembles or stage directors with a strong choreographic idea from all over the world. Each residency will be a 2-3 week residency. In addition, it is possible for Danish or Danish-based artists to apply for consideration for their international residency programmes, which are based on exchanges with the Residency Centre partners (read more about them here). Danish or Danish-based artists can also apply for a co-production, which you can read more about at the bottom of this page.
