DiP is made possible by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Thanks to a visionary grant, two of this year’s artists, chameckilerner and Jaamil Kosoko, will have the opportunity to transform one of their three residency weeks into a fully supported production residency, enabling them to fully develop work that requires technical support in a theater or production laboratory setting during the creative process.
“Now entering its fifth year, DiP has provided pivotal support in the artistic trajectories of over 50 dance makers whose creative output has been resonant and impactful. The generosity and commitment of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has meant that diverse voices in the art form have been brought forth, nurtured and lifted up through expansive support. At a time when funding for culture and creativity has been called into question, Mellon’s backing of DiP is visionary and nothing short of extraordinary.” - Gina Gibney
