Technical residency

The 2 weeks technical residencies in the studio Jeanne-Renaud include:

  • 5 days of studio time per week;
  • production support during the residency;
  • access to the technical equipment of the studio Jeanne-Renaud;
  • 30 hours of technical service (set-up, touch ups, strike) in addition to the support offered by Circuit-Est’s technical team;
  • a financial contribution to their project.


Studio residency

The studio residencies are intended for emerging choreographers [generational or disciplinary]. Interpreters are also invited to submit a project. Selected artists will be offered 30 to 40 hours of studio time and a financial contribution to their project.

To be considered for a technical and studio residency you must:

  • be engaged in a professional career in dance;
  • have a research and questionning approach in their work;
  • demonstrate quality in their artistic work;
  • already have presented your work to the public in a professional context.



The mentorship program offers the selected choreographers 40 hours of studio time to work on their new creation, including 20 hours with a mentor of their choice. They also receive a financial contribution to their project. Mentorship gives the opportunity to emergent artists to work with experienced artists.

To be considered for a mentorship you must:

  • be an emergent artist;
  • present the potential of a promising artistic development;
  • have a willingness to blossom on an artistic level and demonstrate the significant contribution that a mentorship represents.
