Event Description : Gati Summer Dance Residency (GSDR)

About GSDR : Gati Summer Dance Residency (GSDR) now in its seventh edition, was first conceived to address a burgeoning demand for a critical space that supports the art of dance making. Established in 2009, GSDR has been conceived of as a space that supports the development of emerging choreographers and their engagement with dance-making. It provides 6 choreographers each year with an opportunity to propose, conceptualise and realise their own choreographic works, and in doing so gain skills and experience in the art of choreography. At the end of the residency, the residents are expected to have created a choreographic work that will be showcased in a performance open to the public.
GSDR supports selected residents with feedback and assistance from established mentors. A mentor in this context is someone who helps raise questions, develop ideas and introduce other perspectives in the course of the choreographic process. GSDR provides each resident-choreographer with financial support, individual mentoring, rehearsal space, production assistance, and a final performance. 
While this 10-week residency takes place in New Delhi, the artists are drawn though an open call from all over South Asia and represent a wide geographic spread. Many of the residents in the past editions of this mentored residency have come from cities such as Pune, Imphal, Gurgaon, Meerut, and Guwahati.

The Residency in its Essence and Spirit: 
The idea of the residency emerged from the need of emerging talented dancers in India looking for opportunities to create and showcase their own choreographic works. By providing the selected residents with the basic components of not just time, space and money, but also mentors to guide them, the Gati Summer Dance Residency is a truly intensive and rigorous experience for the residents. 
The intensive programme of morning class, rehearsals, peer-sharing meetings, mentor meetings and workshops ensure that weekdays (and sometimes weekends) are packed. 
The mentoring programme is designed to support residents as they go through their choreographic process. The task of the mentors is to be the ‘outside eye’, to ask questions, reflect on the works being created, redirect the residents when they are stuck, and mirror what they see. Their role is an integral part of the residency. Another essential part of the residency is the weekly peer-sharing session. The spirit of GSDR is to facilitate learning through the sharing of resources and ideas. Peer-sharing gives the residents the opportunity to support each other as they share their progress, discoveries and problems during each week of the programme.
During GSDR, the residents are encourages to build a context for their engagement with dance through exposure to other artistic and theoretical work. Gati facilitates their journey of dance-making through various inputs.
