Good news for South African choreographers …


Dance Forum receives funding

Dance Forum has received funding from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund (NLDTF) to host a series of Residency programmes.

Starting at the end of March 2015 and running until mid-November 2015, the residency programme will offer choreographers a space, for a period of up to six weeks, where they will be able to create a new work.

The Residency programme will offer choreographers the following:

– the use of the venue, The Dance Space, Newtown, Johannesburg, for a period of up to six weeks, where the resident artist can create a new work

– assistance on all levels, music and administration; and (depending on the outcome) the work will be presented at a space in Johannesburg

– a fee of R10 000

– airfares and accommodation for two choreographers from outside Gauteng

– fees for dancers (maximum 10 dancers per choreographer) per residency

– per diems

Dance Forum will require the following from the resident choreographer:

– a weekly Open class to be facilitated at the Dance Space during the residency

– a showing of the outcome of the residency at a space in Johannesburg

– a Face to Face conversation after the showing

– a full report-back of the process after the residency

Applications for the Residency are open to professional South African choreographers and the work must be of a minimum of 30 minutes to one hour.
