Critical Path - Explore Experiment

Established in 2004, Critical Path is a dynamic, responsive organisation. The principal goal is to support innovative research by NSW choreographers.

The program delivers research opportunities which promote innovation by creating opportunities for choreographers to explore new ways of working, develop new networks and engage in debate and critical appreciation of dance. Best practice in artistic research is incorporated into a diverse program which features a 3-strand model of Curated, Responsive and Mentoring projects.

The program provides support for experienced choreographers to tailor make research projects addressing their personal needs
Offers group professional development opportunities in workshops and masterclasses, where peer support and sharing is encouraged
Creates a context for mentoring and peer exchange through a program of projects instigated and led by experienced artists
Provides a platform for the sharing of research outcomes to peers, presenters and funders within a supportive critical context
