To be held in New Delhi between 5-26 June, the 2016 edition of Gati Summer Dance Residency (GSDR) has been conceived of as a 3-week laboratory for young choreographers, with an intensive programme that includes classes, workshops, lectures, discussions on choreography, context and criticality with a range of practitioners from the field of performance-making. This special edition of GSDR, with a distinct focus on finding a choreographic starting point through directed tasks and discussions, will culminate in a sharing of short sketches created by the residents during the laboratory.

GSDR 2016- Laboratory for Young Choreographers will include the following components:
1.    An intense programme of workshops with experienced practitioners
2.    Studio time with feedback and discussion
3.    Final sharing of choreographic sketches

NOTE: Residents will not be creating new works during GSDR 2016, unlike the previous editions of the residency.
