FABRIC, is delighted to announce the seven successful recipients of an exciting new residency programme to provide artists based in the UK with financial investment, space, and staff time to explore new ideas and support the realisation of projects.

Reflecting FABRIC’s ambitious vision to inspire people through dance, transforming lives, communities and places, these substantial new residencies are part of our strategy to improve the working conditions of artists, and to invest in new research and creation that will engage and resonate with audiences in fresh and different ways.

FABRIC will be working with the selected artists over the next 6 months and will open a new application process for a further residency opportunity in 2023.

The opportunity offers support in two strands:


This opportunity is for research into new ways of thinking about and doing dance, movement, and choreography with an emphasis on ideas that need time and space to explore, test and develop, rather than creation of new work.


This opportunity is for projects that have already undertaken research and development processes and could benefit from a residency to support the final stages of creation. All of these include public showcasing and future touring work supported by a range of additional partners and funders.
