Call for graduate dance artists: EVOLVE
Graduate Dance Platform
On Wednesday 20th February and Thursday 21st 2019, Bath Spa University, Bath Dance and Theatre Bristol will be presenting a platform for new graduate performance and screen dance works at the Bath Spa University Theatre.
This is an open call out to dance artists who have graduated in the past five years to platform creative ideas already in progress before a live audience. EVOLVE Graduate Dance Platform is specifically targeted towards artists who have a connection to the South West region.
We are looking for 3-4 live dance works in progress that are between 10 and 15 minutes in length to take part in a sharing of work on Weds 20th February. In addition, we are
also looking for emerging screendance makers to take part in a screening on Thursday 21st February. All new works could be concept beginnings or an extract from a longer work. Wherever you currently are with your creation we are interested to hear from you.
We aim for the platform to be an opportunity for graduates to sustain and continue to experiment with their creative practice. Evolve will create an open, interactive and
authentic dialogue between performer and the audience to nurture the development of ideas.
Post-EVOLVE, graduates will have optional access to individual mentoring support to reflect and review their feedback and inform their practice. Previous artistic mentors included Karla Shacklock, Laila Diallo, Lila Dance and Lois Taylor.
The deadline for submissions will be Friday 21st December with successful applicants hearing from us by Monday 7th January 2018.

We look forward to hearing from you!
