Choreolab24: Apply as a Choreographer

29th April – 17th May 2024

Applications close: 22nd March 11:59pm

What is on offer: 
2 Emerging Choreographers (< 5 years experience)
2 Established Choreographers (>5 years experience)

Each choreographer will have dedicated studio time (partitioned studio) to research and develop their choreographic work. At the end of each of the first two weeks there will be collective time to share the work in progress material and discussion in private sharings with only the cohort and engage in a supportive dialogue facilitated by Alison Currie, to give space for reflections, responses and ideas.
By the end of the 3 wks each choreographer will have shown the work 2 times privately in a facilitated discussion with the cohort of other makers and a 3rd time with a select group of invited peers.
Presenters and peers invited to the 3rd showing will be selected based on their possibility to present or support future developments of these works or the choreographers with their ongoing careers. These presenters will include respected colleagues from across the sector. The cohort of artists will be invited to add suggestions to this list which will make the most of their existing connections as well as provide a platform to form new ones.
Choreolab24 will be open to applications from choreographers currently residing in or with an ongoing connection to South Australia, to propose an idea they are interested in developing for any presentation medium (stage, gallery, site-specific, video).
3 wks fees will be paid to each choreographer as per the dancer weekly award Dancers Australia Code of Practice 2023, plus super.
Two (or more*) emerging dancers will be employed for two weeks in the development period and will work across the projects. The dancers and choreographers will decide together how to make the most of the time. *current fundraising may lead to additional dancers joining the cohort.
