Call for projects – Technical residencies from September 6, 2022 to December 16, 2022
***Application deadline: May 8, 2022, 11.59 p.m.***

The 2022-2023 CCOV residencies provide dance artists with:

  • 1 or 2 weeks’ exclusive access to our 2800 sq.ft.
  • A daily fee for the artists and collaborators involved.

Projects that push the boundaries of form, and artists from all experience levels and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

In 2022-2023, the CCOV will award 4-6 technical residencies and 7-10 simple residencies (depending on studio availability).

Note : The call for projects for simple residencies will be launched in September 2022 and these will be planned between January and June 2023.

Faced with the disruption of activities that we have undergone since 2020, the CCOV has been fortunate to benefit from exceptional emergency funds from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts du Québec. Since our main mission is to support research and production in dance, we have decided to give back 100% of these funds to the artists, the residents and their collaborators who benefited from our studio and infrastructures during the 2021-2022 season.
The CCOV would like to thank the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec which allowed us, thanks to their emergency funds, to broaden our support for artists and their creations of productions during the 2022-2023 season.



  • 1 or 2 weeks’ exclusive access to our 2800 sq.ft. studio: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday
  • Additionally, the CCOV will provide up to $2000/residency in technical crew services, specialised equipment rental, or other specific technical requirements.
  • Access to a changing room, showers, and Wi-Fi.
  • Access to a sound system, basic lighting for rehearsals (general lighting) and a black dance floor (40’ x 40’ marley).
  • Artists’ fees (a maximum of $120/day per person present during the residency)
  • All resident artists are invited to consult with the CCOV’s artistic, administrative, and technical staff about project-specific matters.

Certain conditions regarding the use of the premises and equipment apply for all residencies and will be specified in a written agreement between the“Centre de Création O Vertigo” and the artist.

A selection committee consisting of one of CCOV’s guest co-curators and 3 members of the Montreal dance community will evaluate all applications.

  • The principal selection criteria are the project’s artistic quality, and the demonstrated need for a residency.
  • Please note that the availability of the CCOV studio on the proposed dates will also be a factor taken into consideration.

Obligations: Artists must mention the CCOV in all promotional documents throughout the presentation process.
