Citymoves Artist in Residence
We accept a wide variety of artists and collectives, with each bringing a completely different outlook on movement to Citymoves' studio. Each Artist in Residence typically will lead the Thursday morning ProClass, which is attended by Aberdeen/Aberdeenshire based professional dance artists of varying levels of experience. It's a great opportunity to meet some of the Aberdeen dance community.
During my “Residency from home” I found that I was challenged and pushed differently as a creative, from different space availability to personal mindset. It forced me to think differently and really focus on what it is I want to accomplish and really utilise every small detail and surrounding. I also came to realise that as there was no official sharing of what I was exploring, the pressure of creating something set was lifted and I could just enjoy exploring the movement and thought process. I am extremely excited to pursue the creation even further and I cannot wait until we can all share and appreciate live dance again soon.
I would very much like to thank Citymoves (Dance Agency SCIO) for still supporting artists through this uncertain time, its organisations like this who really are pillars of support in the artistic community that others really should strive to be like.
