NEXT Festival 2024 Sat 23 Mar 2024, 5-7.30pm

NEXT Choreography 2023/24 comes to a close with a building wide sharing.

NEXT Choreography is a 6-month course for 16–25 year olds who want to experiment with dance and choreography. It’s a space to question, challenge and nurture ways of making outside of formal education.

Presenting a collection of transdisciplinary works, this sharing will traverse all three floors of our studios. The group envision solos and collaborative performances, as well as material installations. Considering relationality and transformation in volatile times, the work will permeate across forms, showcasing a tapestry of creative curiosities, encounters and asymmetries. Together, the collective invite you to be brave with them as they make their way into the after.

NEXT is co-held by SDS’ Artistic Director Annie Pui Ling Lok and producer Nancy May Roberts. The 30 participants have worked with artists Kat Hawkins, SERAFINE1369, Freestylers, Angela Andrew, Rebekah Ubuntu, Anna Alvarez, Anna Seymour, Jules Cunningham, Seke Chimutengwende, Adesola Akinleye, Billy Morgan, Maya Leeke and the NEUROLIVE project.

Applications for NEXT Choreography 2024/25 will open in Summer 2024. Find out more here, or sign up to our mailing list to receive updates.
