Deadline for submitting Expressions of Interest is Wednesday 20 June 2018.
BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art (Gateshead) and Siobhan Davies Dance (London) are pleased to announce a new four-year partnership - CONTINUOUS. This ambitious collaboration seeks to advance the creation, presentation and development of audiences for experimental independent contemporary dance within visual arts contexts.
The partnership begins with an open call to dance artists and choreographers for two CONTINUOUS commission opportunities. Selected artists will be hosted at BALTIC and Siobhan Davies Studios for up to seven weeks of making, with these first commissions premiering at BALTIC in Autumn 2019. This opportunity is both a commission to create an ambitious new work and an opportunity to exchange knowledge with the staff of BALTIC and Siobhan Davies Dance.
CONTINUOUS aims for artists and organisations to learn from one another about how to create the best conditions for making and presenting dance in a gallery context, and for engaging audiences. Throughout the partnership knowledge will be shared with colleagues and the public through a series of affiliated public events.
HOW TO APPLY
We are looking for artists with at least three years demonstrable professional experience. Our primary concern is with the rigour of the artist’s practice and the artist’s interest and enthusiasm for working in a visual art context, evidenced by expression of interest. Previous experience of working in galleries as a performer or choreographer is not required.
We are committed to recognising the value of practices reflecting a range of backgrounds. We are inviting artists with different skills, experiences and voices to join us. We actively encourage applications from those who consider themselves as having a minority representation in this field.
Deadline for submitting Expressions of Interest is STRICTLY 23:59 on Wednesday 20 June 2018.
