@Disturbance is an interdisciplinary and experimental artistic residency and development programme, taking place at Ugly Duck. It is a project supporting diversity, under-represented bodies and voices in the arts. It intends to challenge power dynamics, offering a platform for new representations of genders, bodies, identities and sexualities. This is a paid opportunity supported by Arts Council England for LGBTQIA+ performers and video artists.

We are offering LGBTQIA+ performance artists or contemporary dancers 1 weeks residency and sharing opportunity at Ugly Duck and mentorship with Physical Computing lecturer Robert Hall and Ugly Duck’s Curator and Creative Producer Deen Atger as well as from industry professionals and artists.

This residency is an opportunity to develop a new or existing project, and an opportunity to adapt this project to a hybrid online and offline realm. The residency will culminate with public performances of up to 20 minutes showcased live from our venue to a physical audience as well as online using the latest streaming equipment.
