Rapid Response: Sidra Bell Dance New York's 
Engagements in Sweden

Rapid Response is American Dance Abroad's travel subsidy program to assist U.S. dance companies and artists who receive invitations to perform, teach, or conduct creative research abroad.
The next application deadline is June 1, 2019.

"MÖNSTER OUTSIDE was a major cross cultural collaboration with 12 performers/technicians from the USA, Canada, Germany, and Sweden (Dancers & Live Musicians from New Tide Orquesta). The Scandinavian tour was the product of four years of creative work. Without American Dance Abroad we would not have been able to afford the international travel costs with a cast and technical crew of this size. As a result of this tour, SBDNY has increased its international footprint and has been invited to explore more international collaborations through 2021. We have also been able to forge connections with audiences of all ages in Sweden through our teaching and community outreach on tour.

There are opportunities and continued relationships that have been presented abroad for SBDNY. It was important to show a fully realized evening length work on international stages. We have gained a significant following from this tour. It is important and essential for our work to expand beyond its nuclear audience to foster larger conversations about dance's role in the contemporary landscape of politics and social change."

–Sidra Bell, Artistic Director, SBDNY
