Holstebro Dance Company wants to promote the effects of dance by creating choreographic performing arts, which invite the audience to highly topical experiences that put reflection and dialogue in motion. We are determined to support and encourage diverse and choreographic performing arts.

In order to accommodate this challenge and fulfill our ambitions about supporting and establishing continuous interactions with a wide and diverse choreographic field, as well as increasing our local audience’s knowledge about dance and choreographies, we have created and are contributing in three different Residency Programmes:

Choreographic Residency at Holstebro Dance Company

  • Time and space for choreographic art and immersion

With this Residency Program, we want to support professional choreographic art rather than isolated projects. We want to support with time and space; without obligation to content or results.

The project is supported by The Danish Arts Foundation, which, among others, is collaborating with The Dance Halls

This Residency Program is addressed to choreographic artist, with base in Denmark, who have ambitions to embrace seniority, background, practical approach and aesthetics.

From December 2021 up to and including December 2022, the following choreographic artists will be in residency at Holstebro Dance Company:

Kasper DaugaardJulie Schmidt AndreasenPernille GardeMarie ToppSimone WierødTwo Woman Machine Show (Ida-Elisabeth Larsen and Marie-Louise Stentebjerg), and DeLéon Company (Jens Schyth Brøndum and Stina Strange Thue).

Besides, The Dance Halls has the opportunity to offer residency in Holstebro to an artist, who, in their opinion, is relevant and beneficial.

At the present moment, it is not possible to apply for this Residency Program.

Bora Bora International Residency Centre

  • International collaboration

Bora Bora Residency Centre is an international residency center, based in Jutland Denmark, with a focus on artistic and economically sustainable production conditions and development,  for professional artists within the field of contemporary dance.

The centre is run by Bora Bora in Aarhus and Holstebro Dance Company is proud to be a partner and co-host.

All Bora Bora residencies will take place at either Bora Bora or one of the international partners and Danish co-hosts of the project that counts both theaters, folk high schools, and other performing arts organizations.

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. It is possible for Danish or Danish-based artists to apply for consideration for our international residency programmes, which are based on exchanges with our Residency Centre partners. Danish or Danish-based artists can also apply for a co-production, through our open calls.

We currently do not have any active open calls.
