Visiting Artists


Every Summer PDSW provides studio space and the support of its team to a number of Visiting Artists. Visiting Artists can explore their practice, test out new ideas or develop work for touring. There is no expectation for a finished piece, but plenty of time for conversation and creativity! The Visiting Artists scheme is a way to introduce your work to the PDSW team in a low pressure way. There is an open call for this opportunity every January.  In March and April 2022 independent dancer/choreographer Jazz Gritt, Olivia Quayle and Cathy Waller + outgoing Company in Residence Kay Crook joined PDSW staff Zannah Chisholm and Jeanette Hinton to select this year’s Visiting Artists as well as the Company in Residence.

Visiting Artists for 2022-23 are: Elena Catalano, Kashish Gaba and Claud Tonietto. 

Company in Residence for 2022-23 is: Sam Gilroy 

Base Camp company for 2022-23 is: Joli Vyan 

Guest Company for 2022-23 is: Just Us Dance Theatre


Artists who have an established relationship with us may also visit at other times of the year as part of an ongoing conversation.

Applications are now closed for our Visiting Artists and Company in Residence schemes 2022 – 23. Call outs for 2023-24 begins January 2023.
