Guest Artist Residency
A SPACE WHERE IMAGINATIONS OPEN
Now in its 12th year, the DANCENOW Silo Guest Artist Residency is a vital part of how DANCENOW assists urban dance makers by encouraging and supporting the creation of new work. In addition to offering artists free rehearsal space to work, Silo is opening doors for urban dance makers to develop important and new relationships with Bucks County/Lehigh Valley arts presenters and educators to help advance their careers and introduce the area to the vast spectrum of dance innovation. Just 76 miles from NYC and 56 miles from Philadelphia in the heart of Bucks County/Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, Silo is highly accessible to the dance communities in these cities, but serves artists all across the country. by providing unlimited and free use of two large and fully equipped rehearsal studios located in the farm’s renovated horse and bank barns. To offset the costs of maintaining the residency program, Silo offers housing in the Guest House at Kirkland Farm, which can accommodate companies of up to ten artists, for a very minimal fee of between $150 for a weekend residency to $350 for a two-week residency. The residency program is open to all artists on a first-come, first-served basis.
