Plug-N-Play Residencies

Throughout the Season

Through our Plug-N-Play residencies, Toronto Dance Theatre (TDT) is offering six local dance artists an opportunity to research and create in our rehearsal studios free of charge during the 2022/23 season. These will be 6 individual week-long, half-day residencies that are made available artists who were selected from an open call in September 2022.

We view these residencies as an integral part of TDT’s commitment to supporting the professional development of Toronto’s dance artists. The residencies are intended to provide the artists time and space to support the development of an artistic idea, to dig deeper into a project they have on the roster, or to have access to a large space that allows them to experiment with collaborators.

Mary-Dora Bloch-Hansen is sitting on their knees on a white floor of a studio space with a wooden wall behind them. Placed over their head is a light pink, mesh sheet that drapes down and covers their upper body. Their legs are bare, showing various tattoos. To their right side, they are holding up a bunch of long skinny branches that are still attached together by the roots.
