Applications for the 2015 International Young Choreographer's Project are now closed. Congratulations to the successful applicant Lewis Major.
Choreographers will create a work on local dancers, many of whom will be non-English speaking. Only choreographers who feel confident that they can meet the challenges of producing a work in unfamiliar circumstances and with unfamiliar dancers should apply. The project will culminate in a performance.
Applications should include:
- what you expect to gain from this professional experience
- why you would like to work in Asia
- A brief concept of your work.
- 200-word autobiography and a resume/CV
- link/s to a YouTube or Vimeo excerpt of your recent choreography (IMPORTANT: Avoid short 'bites' and solo work. Assessors want to get some insight into your processes. One 4–10-minute excerpt of a group work is preferable. Videos need to be good quality and well lit.)
- up to three photos of your work (optional)
Accommodation, local transport, dancers, studios, publicity, production and office assistance are all provided, as well as an honorarium of US$800.
Airfares are NOT covered.
Australian applications will be assessed by Nanette Hassall (Chair, Creation & Presentation network, WDA–AP) and Dr Cheryl Stock (Secretary-General, WDA). The successful applicant will be notified by mid-March.
Previous recipients include Olivia Millard (2006), Felecia Hick (2008), Cadi McCarthy (2009) Zaimon Vilmanis (2011). Read about their experiences in Related content > Creating dance at the International Young Choreographer Project (see side column article).
