Help support New Zealand dance artists Alexa Wilson and Josie
Space to Fail is a process based international reciprocal
exchange residency project which will be taking place in Vancouver
in November 2019 and Sydney and Christchurch in early 2020.
Space to Fail is a project designed by Adam Hayward of Hyde
Productions and for this first edition presented by Hyde
Productions (Christchurch), Critical Path (Sydney) and the Dance
Space to Fail places process at its heart as it focuses on the
craft of the artist and not the need to constantly churn out
product. It shifts the focus away from short periods of energy
expended to make a work that is seen by a few before the demands of
making the next work kick in and rather says take the time to play,
to simply be an artist, in space with other artists from other
places and see where that takes you.
This boosted campaign is to support these two phenomenal New
Zealand dance artists to take part in the Vancouver part of this
first residency alongside artists from Australia and Canada during
Dance in Vancouver in November this year.
All onshore costs, accommodation, per diems and studio hire etc.
are covered and we simply need to get them there and let them
Your support will go towards flights and fees and any stretch
target will go towards the Sydney and Christchurch leg of the
project in 2020.
