Bora Bora

About Bora Bora

Bora Bora Residency Centre is an international residency center, based in Aarhus, with a focus on artistic and economically sustainable conditions for the development of the artistic practice and works, for professional artists mostly within the field of contemporary dance.

Bora Bora Residency Centre activities

This year the Residency Centre organizes an open call to find artists in need of a residency. Either to immerse themselves in their artistic practice and/or the development of a project. We design each residency by engaging in analytical dialogue, where we explore the artistic focus for the residency. Each of these residencies includes fees for participating artists, paid transportation and accommodation, as well as a contributing person (see below).

All Bora Bora residencies will take place at either Bora Bora or one of the project’s Danish co-hosts that encompass theaters, folk-highschools and other performing arts organizations.

International exchanges

In addition to the annual open call, which is open internationally, the Bora Bora Residency Centre is also a partner in the Nordic Residency Exchange Program, where five major performing arts houses in the northern Europe, collaborate on exchanging artists once a year. Bora Bora sends out a Danish artist, or an artist based in Denmark, to a partner and receives an artist from either Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland or Lithuania. These residencies are selected by the partners and can not be applied for.

Furthermore, the residency centre is a member of the international residency exchange collaboration “Dance & Dramaturgy EU” and has been a member of CROWD – International Dance Exchange.
