Submissions for the 2013-14 NC Dance Festival touring artists are due by this Friday, February 8!
We are committed to presenting the works of North Carolina dance artists in many forms, and strive to represent the various styles and interests within the NC dance community. The NCDF tends to showcase modern/contemporary dance, but has successfully presented works in other dance genres as well. Regardless of the genre, we are looking for dances that demonstrate strong choreographic sense, including attention to structure, timing, pacing, spatial relations, and development of movement and thematic ideas.
The Festival goes to five communities within the state (Raleigh, Charlotte, Boone, Greensboro, Wilmington) and participating artists are expected to perform the same dance at all sites. Each choreographer is asked to contribute 8-12 minutes of dance. We also expect touring artists to take part in Festival outreach programs when asked, which involves teaching master classes or performing in mini-concerts in a variety of settings in association with concert weekends. Additional pay is involved for these programs.
To apply, send a video/DVD of the work you would like to present on the Festival. Please let us know if you have presented this work in North Carolina within the last year, or plan to present it instate within the next year.
Works are selected by a blind review process, so please be sure that the recorded material does not have your name on it.
Send dvd along with a vitae and a $20 application fee to:
