Choreolab Opportunity: Big Ideas on a Small Scale – Open Call for Applications

Scale & Scope ChoreoLAB

Big Ideas on a Small Scale

Open Call for Applications

Monday 4 April – Friday 8 April 2016

Pavilion Dance South West and South East Dance are working in partnership to increase development and choreographic opportunities for artists who want to explore creating work that is big in ideas but small in scale, where technical and practical limitations complement the work, rather than compromise it.

Applications are now open for the 2016 Scale & Scope ChoreoLAB. The lab will be an opportunity for two artists to experiment with ideas and test possibilities with a collaborator of their choice (if they wish), investigating new work over a week without the pressure of producing a finished piece of work.  In addition, the participating artists will be invited to the Small Spaces & Rural Places Dance Summit at PDSW in May, and offered the opportunity to take part.

Each artist will receive a budget to cover fees, accommodation and travel. Producers from both organisations will be present throughout the LAB week offering support, advice and feedback.

How to apply

Full details and an application form can be found at:

To apply please complete and return the application form to by 5pm on Tuesday 8 March 2016. Successful applicants will be informed by Thursday 10 March 2016.

Applications for this opportunity are being managed by Pavilion Dance South West.

South East Dance is an Equal Opportunities employer. Supported by Arts Council England, South East, Brighton and Hove City Council and Kent County Council.

PDSW is supported by ACE, Bournemouth Borough Council and BH Live.

COLLABORATE – Dramaturgs for choreographers

COLLABORATE is an open access investment pot for people wanting to involve a dramaturg in their choreographic practice.

·         A combination of the above…

We are open to your ideas and hope to be as flexible as possible.
