The BDE Research Project was successfully launched last month and has now brought together 20 organisations that have collectively committed £40,000 (plus in-kind support) to invest in artists and dance companies who can take forward choreographic thinking and practice in one (or more) of the following strands:
- Live-arts based work from artists in mid to late career
- Multi-disciplinary dance work
- The creation of dance work that is transferable between different formats (eg. different scales, theatre and non-theatre environments, professional / non-professional casts)
- Work for children and families
We’ve already had more than 30 enquiries and project ideas from a range of artists and companies but, with Christmas nearing, we wanted to remind potential applicants of the deadline and the available support and advice.
The initial application is a simple proposal of no more than 1000 words. If shortlisted, you’ll be asked to take part in a live pitch event at BDE on 5th February. Applications deadline: 5th January
We look forward to hearing your ideas and proposals!
