I am pleased to announce that MARC (Milvus Artistic Research Center) will open its doors this March with our first artist in residence Benoît Lachambre. The center is a long-term project I have established with support from the region of Skåne in Sweden and the municipality of Simrishamn in Kivik, Sweden. The center will serve as a space for artistic research within the field of performance as well as a base for RTD. Stay tuned for posts as we finish construction on our studio and commence with the first residency.
Opening events include:
-One open rehearsal day March 28th, 12-4pm (visitors can drop by un- announced during these times).
-Two open studio showings with Benoît Lachambre and Rachel Tess in MARC’s studio/performance space, April 3rd and 4th, 6pm-7pm.
-Post showing reception beginning at 7pm on both evenings.
-Movement workshops open to the public TBA shortly on the website.
All events take place at:
MARC, Gladeholm/Kivik 27735 (SE)
About the Center
With one indoor studio/performance space, living accommodations, and an inspiring landscape on 11 hectares of farmland at the edge of Stenshuvud National Park in Kivik, Sweden, MARC provides a concentrated environment for artistic research within the field of performance. Three times a year we invite collaborators and individual artists to participate in up to one-month residencies at the center. Artists are invited to share their work at open-studio showings during the residency period.
MARC is a platform where performance practices, working modes, and methodologies are questioned and new work is created and shared. MARC provides the opportunity for dance choreographers and practitioners to focus on specific research questions. MARC has an interest in interdisciplinary collaboration and welcomes other disciplines with a relationship to live performance to the center for residencies each spring.
