LOUD BODIES Dance: CALL FOR CHOREOGRAPHERS!
LINK TO APPLY:
Application DUE: January 15th 2021 @5PM CST
1st meeting with choreographers & LOUD BODIES: February 2021
Creative process: March-June 2021
Performance: An outdoor experience in July of 2021
What is it?
A collaborative, creative process between choreographer, LOUD BODIES, and a non-profit organization associated with the choreographer's social justice related theme. Meaning, the choreographer selected will be the main choreographer of their work, but not the only person involved in the creative process. LOUD BODIES believes in the benefit and power of having multiple voices heard in a work. In addition, LOUD BODIES will pair the choreographer with a non-profit organization giving back to the Chicago community that is related to the social theme the choreographer is exploring. We are asking for you to create a new work that is between 15-20 minutes. This time is negotiable.
We are providing a stipend for each choreographer, as well as a separate stipend for all dancers involved. We are also providing two hours of rehearsal space weekly at Free Mvmt Shop in Wicker Park. Professional photography and videography of performances will also be provided.
*We encourage all types of dancers and dance styles to apply. LOUD BODIES believes in the importance of representing styles that may not be seen among the concert dance world. We encourage BIPOC, LGBTQIA2+ & non-binary artists to apply, as LOUD BODIES will always be a safe and welcoming space for you.
