Club Żak is pleased to invite entries to the Residency/Premiere 2018competition which accompanies the 11th Gdańsk Dance Festival. Applicants are welcome to submit projects of pieces in broadly conceived contemporary dance. The purpose of the competition is to support and promote contemporary dance and contemporary ballet. The contest is addressed to Polish dancers and participants of the Solo Dance Contest, organised by Club Żak as part of the Gdańsk Dance Festival. Entries may be submitted by persons living in Poland since 1 January 2018 (or longer) and by dancers based abroad who presented their pieces at the Solo Dance Contest, organised as part of the Gdańsk Dance Festival in 2014-2018.


Selected projects will be developed at Club Żak from February through June 2019. Dancers will be allocated with PLN 6,000 (duo pieces) and PLN 10,000-20,000 (large cast performances); the organisers will also provide technical assistance during general rehearsal (acoustics and lighting engineers), publicity, and rehearsal space.


Those selected will be assisted by mentors – eminent dancers and choreographers: Patricia Apergi  (Greece), Eva Duda (Hungary) and Jean Gaudin (France). The February and April residencies will conclude with public premieres, while the piece developed in May will premiere at the 11th Gdańsk Dance Festival on 7 June 2019.
