Exciting opportunity for choreographers at Wilton's Music Hall.


APPLICATIONS OPEN FOR WILTONíS STRIKE! DANCE FESTIVAL

ďWiltonís Music Hall is fast becoming a significant dance venue, with its festival presenting a compelling mix of new work.Ē The Observer (on Wiltonís Strike! 2014)

After a successful pilot in 2014, Wiltonís Strike! free dance festival returns in 2016, commissioning new work and exciting ideas from promising choreographers worldwide from Tuesday 3 May to Thursday 5 May 2016.

Applicants are invited to submit a proposal for a new piece of choreography on the theme of memory. Six choreographers will be selected to develop their piece which will be shown at Wiltonís Music Hall; the worldís oldest surviving music hall. Audiences, including critics, will be invited to attend and review the final performances, which will be live-streamed to expose the work to as broad an audience as possible.

ďHaving commission money meant I was able to have a small team around me - working with a dramaturg and a composer for the first time opened up so many new processes. I am now looking forward to creating a duet with ACE funding - this never would have happened if you guys didn't believe in me first!Ē Ieva Kuniskis (Choreographer, Wiltonís Strike! 2014)

Wilton's has a strong reputation for staging outstanding dance, with the Mark Bruce Companyís production of Dracula, co-commissioned by Wiltonís, scooping The South Bank Sky Arts Award for Dance in 2013. Successful applicants will be mentored by the Wiltonís artistic team with help from Jonathan Goddard and a group of experienced choreographers and industry professionals.

Applications are open to anyone aged 18 and over. Applications close Friday 26 February at 5pm.
