Coaching Residencies for Choreographers

International choreographic residencies under the guidance of experimented and world-renowned coaches

Jean Gaudin & Dominique Rebaud

Event place:

18–25 August 2016
Prague, Czech Republic

Centre for Choreographic Development SE.S.TA invites you to participate in our annual coaching residencies for choreographers

The residence’s priority is to question choreographers’ own research and lead them to look for new ways for their choreographic approach within their own work as well as to deepen their own artistic direction. The residency is conceived as a dialogue between choreographers and experienced coaches who guide them through the whole process. The workshops offer space for intense individual work while their community aspect is not to be forgotten. This is a great opportunity for networking on an international level for all.

Concept :

Participating choreographers will prepare a new choreography draft or will elaborate on an extract of already existing choreography (15 minutes maximum) that will serve as a foundation for the work during the training course. The coaches will see the basis material on a video recording beforehand so they can get acquainted with the inner world of each choreographer and understand their way of perception before the beginning of the training course. During the workshop participants will analyse individual elements of their choreographies. Furthermore they will try to define these, andtogether with their coaches re-identify what is important and what could be further developed. The results of their work will be presented to public as work in progress. The goal is to present a phase of creative process rather than a final product or whole choreography.


The focus of this residence is neither on technical skills of dancers, nor the aesthetics of their expression. The priority is to question their research and lead them to look for new ways for their choreographic approach within their own work as well as to deepen their own artistic direction. The residency is conceived as a dialogue between choreographers and experienced coaches who guide them through the whole process. The workshops offer space for intense individual work while their community aspect is not to be forgotten. This is a great opportunity for networking on an international level for all.
