We are glad to announce that we are now offering the opportunity to join Tr.IPP for specific sessions with a few of our interstate and international guest artists.
We are opening our doors to contemporary dance artists who are not full time Tr.IPP participants but would be interested in obtaining creative opportunities with our guest artists, we are launching the Tr.IPP associate program.
Inspired by our aspirations to realise a hybrid environment which embraces exchange and sharing as methods of learning and development, we have decided to open some of the experience at Tr.IPP to artists who are not full time participants in the pathway.
Tr.IPP is a pathway for graduates and emerging contemporary dance artists for competence and professional development.
Under the artistic direction of Israel Aloni, Tr.IPP has been uniquely designed for dance artists to obtain the necessary methodologies and practices suitable for artists who aspire to develop their own artistic practice as makers and/or perform with companies and independents.
We strongly believe that by joining the cohort of artists in Tr.IPP for a short period, the Tr.IPP associates will earn significant artistic and learning endeavors as well as stimulate our own domain at Tr.IPP by bringing their own identities and values into the group.
The selected associates will be involved in the session with the particular guest artists, as integral members of the cohort and will be fully welcomed into Tr.IPP’s environment and context for the specific time frame.
This opportunity is suitable for tertiary contemporary dance students in their final year of studies, postgraduates as well as independent contemporary dance artists.
Please note: Only 3 associates will be selected for each opportunity.
