PearlDiving Movement Residency supports professional movement artists making multimedia or multi-disciplinary dance work by providing rehearsal space, technical support, mentorship, and a stipend during a two week or month-long residency. The dual-track program serves both local and visiting artists and offers time in an environment where research, play, and risk-taking are encouraged in order to create and present new work. Participants are committed to personal and professional development, community engagement, and represent diverse voices in the local and national contemporary dance field.
