A new biennial dance festival FROM 1-31 March 2023 is coming.
This will be the festival’s pilot year; an experiment
EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST for 20 dance artists to propose ideas and projects for the festival to be supported, presented, and realised by up to 11 Festival Partners.
Biennially, from March 2023, a new dance festival is being created through the collaboration and collective organisation of independent dance artists and organisations to celebrate and convene audiences and communities and expressions of interest are now open.
An evolving and transformative congregation for audiences, artists and partners alike and seeks to represent dance artists from across forms, practices, cultures, histories, lineages, styles, disciplines, anti-disciplines, aesthetics and experimentations. Looking to feature all kinds of dance projects: shows, talks, films, public programs, sharings, workshops, labs, dinners, publications, gatherings, installations — both in-person and digitally. Dance projects must be led by independent dance artists and small to medium dance companies based in Australia.
The festival will be running from 1-31 March 2023 and is an opportunity to test ideas and models in this pilot year. The festival will comprise programming from multiple Festival Partner organisations. Each Festival Partner also committing to programming works by independent artists, selected via this Expression of Interest and reviewed by a centralised festival Curatorium.
Looking to be adaptive and responding to current conditions in its scale and ambition over a 10-year cycle. It aligns and supports an arts community both recovering from, and preparing for, large-scale shifts in how the arts, climate crisis, and global mobility intersect.
This EOI needs a short 1 page submission, please consider your dance project carefully.
