Rosie Kay Dance Company seeks Dance Artists for 5 SOLDIERS

The award-winning show and community engagement project 5 SOLDIERS will tour in autumn 2017 and we’re looking for Dance Artists in six locations to create stunning community performance pieces associated to the work. We’re looking for emerging and talented choreographers who will respond to the themes of 5 Soldiers and create a commissioned new work. Commissioned Dance Artists will train with RKDC, receive mentoring from Rosie Kay and have their work presented alongside the theatre production.

Locations: London, Hull, Aldershot, Swindon, Colchester, Birmingham

Hard to Reach groups: we have funding for one Dance Artist in each location to work with hard to reach participants who are least engaged in the arts. Our team will facilitate the creation of the group. Dance Artist fee of £1050 plus travel expenses of up to £250.

Existing groups: we welcome applications to commission an additional Dance Artist in each location who is already funded to work with an existing dance group. You will receive the same training, mentoring and performance opportunity but no fee, a contribution towards travel to the training day may be available. Your group needs to be age 12+ and have less than 30 participants.
