Long-term residency gives space for depth and produces lasting results

July, 2018

One of Dance Info Finland’s main international activities is being a partner in exchange or residency programmes for dance artists around the world. Why do we think this is important? What kind of results can be expected? Sari Palmgren, one of Finnish artists participating an exchange programme writes about her experience – and the benefits we also see this kind of activity can mean to the artistic development.

Sari Palmgren has been involved in a joint residency programme for dance artists from Hong Kong and Finland. Now, following the fifth residency period, she is giving us an insight into what she has learnt. “The best thing about the residencies has been getting some distance from my own work and conventions. Being a long way from home gives you the impetus to see your environment and methods afresh. It helps clarify what is important to you.”
