Call for submissions – Pacific Dance Fono: Choreographic Lab
Pacific Dance Fono 2010 now invites Pacific Island choreographers and dancers to apply for the Pacific Dance Choreographic Lab to be held on 15-30 October, 2010.
Choreographers are requested to submit an ‘expression of interest form’ - which you can download here: http://pacificdance.co.nz/workshops.php
Submit to the Pacific Dance Fono ‘10 Selection Committee no later than 5pm, Thursday 23 September, 2010.
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 Island 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 never been performed.
This is a wonderful opportunity for Pacific Island choreographers to create works and have it promoted and developed. The three choreographers selected for the choreographic lab will be provided with:
· A dance studio equipped with a sound system
· A mentor
· An allowance during the two week choreographic lab
· Publicity and promotional opportunities
Each work will be presented at the closing night of the Pacific Dance Fono 2010.
This project will be presented in Manukau City as part of the Manukau Festival of Arts.
All applicants will be notified in mid September and workshops will take place 15th -30th October 2010.
This is not only a call for choreographers. Dancers of Pacific Islands descent should also seek inclusion in these labs by emailing:
