Press Release – Pacific Dance
Call out for Expressions of Interest
Pacific Dance New Zealand now invites New Zealand based Pacific Islands choreographers and dancers to apply for the Pacific Dance Choreographic Lab 2015.
Choreographers are requested to submit an ‘expression of interest’ to the Pacific Dance Choreographic Selection Committee 2015 no later than 5pm, Friday 7th August 2015.
To qualify for this project, choreographers must present a proposal that will include:
• A CV with references
• the concept (what is your dance about?)
• the intended length of the work
• how many dancers (a solo, duet, trio etc)?
All applicants must be of Pacific Islands descent, be an emerging to mid-career choreographer, demonstrate in their submission that they will be able to complete the choreographic lab and submit a new work that has not been performed previously. Choreographers must also be available to develop their works between August and October ready for a performance showing – although times and dates of rehearsals can be negotiated.
The three choreographers selected for the choreographic lab will have the opportunity to develop their works with mentorship and support from PDNZ. They will also receive a stipend to assist during the period of development and have publicity and promotional opportunities. The lab will also end in a public performance where choreographers and dancers will have the opportunity to work in a professional theatre setting.
Each work will be presented at the closing night of the Pacific Dance Choreographic Lab 2015 to be held at the Corban Estate Arts Centre during October.
