Danse-Cité wishes to offer additional support to dance artists leading change by offering research and creation residencies. Offered in conjunction with the MAI | Montréal, arts interculturels, the Maison de la culture du Plateau-Mont-Royal, Par B.L.eux and Studio 303, a contemporary creation company, the residencies include an artist fee. In the fall of 2020, Jordan Brown, Marie-Reine Kabasha, Soleil Launière, Nasim Lootij and Justin de Luna will participate in this new initiative. Other research and creation spaces and times will be offered in the winter of 2021.

For this first year, artists have been selected by the Advisor, Programming and Artistic Activities and the Artistic and General Director.
