Create Space Dance Residency is an initiative between Ausdance NSW, Sydney Opera House and FORM who together recognise the lack of development opportunities for artists with disability and wish to offer a supportive and safe space for these artists to continue to expand their work and practice.
We are delighted to announce dancer and choreographer Dean Walsh as the recipient of the 2019 Create Space Dance Residency. Dean will use the two week opportunity to continue developing his solo work Threshold:NRC.
