Cove Park Residency

As part of a wider project to develop, celebrate and promote dialogue between cultural organisations based in Europe, Dance Ireland and Cove Park have partnered to offer a dance artist, based in Ireland, a residency at Cove Park. 

We are delighted to announce the Residency has been awarded to Dance Ireland Performer / Choreographer Member Aliina Lindroos. The residency will take place 23 September to 7 October 2019.

Her long term collaboration Landing Collective which deals with displacement and post-migration topics have presented film, dance and installation work in USA, Germany, Ireland, UK and Greece.

ABOUT THE RESIDENCY and COVE PARK 

The residency is intended to bring a new dimension to a creative practice by offering a fully supported two-week research and experimentation residency, responding to the themes of national identity, migration and borders.

The aim of the residency is to support a period of research and experimentation, focused broadly around the themes of national identity, migration and borders.
The residency supports an artist with a weekly fee of £425 per week (2 weeks), covers en suite accommodation and travel. The residency is self-catering.
There may also be the opportunity to meet with other dancers and choreographers through Cove Park’s wider partnership network, including members of The Work Room, based within Glasgow’s Tramway.

Cove Park creates year-round residencies across art forms for national and international artists, collaborative groups and organisations. Located on an outstanding 50-acre site overlooking Loch Long on Scotland's west coast (60 minutes from Glasgow by road or rail), Cove Park supports the creation of new work and new ways of working, especially through collaboration across disciplinary borders, and research that takes artists into new professional or creative territory.

Cove Park hosts national and international artists from all creative disciplines. Its European Residency Programme will welcome artists from Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, The Netherlands, Norway and Sweden.
