Open Call: Tyrone Guthrie Residential Residency

What is the Tyrone Guthrie Residential Residency?

Dance Ireland and the Tyrone Guthrie Centre continue their partnership to offer an opportunity to a dance artist to undertake a two-week residency in Annaghmakerrig in 2023.

“Part of the benefit of Tyrone Guthrie was the physical environment where we could explore the stimulus provided by a natural environment  – by forest, field and especially the lake”
