Bridge Project 2018 Choreographer Application / Winter + Summer
The Bridge Project is Velocity’s four-week program for contemporary movement-based artists new to
making work in Seattle, or who have been making work in Seattle for three years or less. This intensive
residency offers four artists up to 45 hours of free rehearsal space for a new project while working with a
cast of auditioned dancers. Additionally, all artists receive the creative, financial, and administrative
support of a fully produced weekend of performances at Velocity.

We are now accepting applications for both Winter and Summer 2018 Bridge Project. We invite artists to
apply for either one or both residencies, dependent on interest and availability. There will be up to seven
artists selected: four artists for Winter 2018 (one a UW Dance Resident), and three for Summer 2018.
