Kate Weare of the Kate Weare Dance Company, educator and choreographer Laurence Blake and Rosanna Gamson, artistic director of Rosanna Gamson/World Wide are expected to participate in the program, according to a CalArts news release.

Supported by a two-year grant from the Evelyn Sharp Foundation, the residency is designed to facilitate the creation of new works and includes studio space for rehearsals, opportunities for creative research and access to theater facilities and support staff.

Weare, Blake and Gamson were commissioned by the Evelyn Sharp Foundation and the Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance at CalArts and are scheduled to assemble on the CalArts campus in Valencia from May 19 to 30.

“This residency is an extension of the high volume of creative work that happens within the Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance throughout the academic year,” said Stephan Koplowitz, the school’s dean. “The Evelyn Sharp Foundation has provided us with the opportunity to recognize exceptional choreographers from across the country and bring them to CalArts so that they can work here alongside our remarkable faculty artists.”

At the end of the two week process, the choreographers will present an invitation-only showing in CalArts’ theater to showcase the work they accomplished during their residencies and provide career opportunities to CalArts’ dance students.

“The timing of the residency is positioned so that students will have the opportunity to engage with these artists separate from the obligations of the academic year,” Koplowitz said.

Other ways students can benefit from the program include an opportunity to be hired by Weare, Blake or Gamson as an understudy and artistic intern or provide support to the choreographers.
