Artist Mentorship


This is a multifaceted dance program encompassing various techniques, performances, residencies, incubation, and interactive platforms, designed to foster artistic collaboration among dancers, movement researchers, producers, and choreographers. Participants are encouraged to dig into the contemporary essence and rituals of performance in diverse formats, exploring themes of social, political, spiritual, and cultural significance. The mentorship program includes research, workshops, presentations, exchanges, artistic discussions, lectures, tours, and experimental performances. Projects developed within this program are eligible for exhibition at the Ensibuko Festival.


Our aim is to ensure that this program is accessible to young creatives, and we are actively working to make it free of charge. Through genuine and meaningful partnerships, we seek to secure the necessary support to enable artists to participate in this program.
