Lower Manhattan Cultural Council


The Extended Life Dance Development residency program is designed to sustain mid-career choreographers with essential financial, administrative and presentation support. The goal is twofold: extends the lives of ephemeral, essential works of dance, and advance the creative lives of the artists themselves through a new framework where institutional collaborations are key. The residency enables choreographers to expand and experiment with their existing works, present in both traditional and site-based venues, and develop strong, collaborative partnerships with local partners and national presenters. 

Inaugural recipients of LMCC’s newly expanded Extended Life dance development artist residencies include nora chipaumire, Beth Gill, Maria Hassabi, Sarah Michelson, Jennifer Monson, Okwui Okpokwasili, Pam Tanowitz, and David Thomson
