CALL FOR INTERNATIONAL CHOREOLAB CHOREOGRAPHERS, DANCERS & SCHOLARS

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: CLOSED

International Choreolab is designed for four emerging and mid-career choreographers to work intensively for almost one week under the mentorship of CNDC Director Robert Swinston and another internationally known choreographer (to be announced) resulting in a public showing of works in progress. Several dancers with various dance backgrounds and skills will work with each choreographer. Two scholars will document the process of this project.

Please note that the registration fee for all successful applicants will be waived. All other costs, including travel, are the responsibility of the recipient. CNDC will provide lodging for the four choreographers. The dancers and scholars are responsible for the costs of their accommodation. Also, the project is quite intensive in effort and time. During the whole summit, the successful applicants might only have little time to attend other presentations except viewing the showcases and evening performances.
