Meet the Bora Bora Residency Centre Artists

If you’re curious to get to know the artists in our programme, you’ve found the right place!
We would like to introduce you to our Bora Bora Residency Centre Alumni – the artists behind the research. Each of them have worked on new material, new research and new pieces, where some material becomes award-winning performances, and other material stay in the notebooks.

Either way, we are thrilled to be able to help support so many talented artists, and we hope you’ll keep your eye on their future work.
