Run by Lou Cope’s Centre for Applied Dramaturgy (CoAD), the course is for:

Choreographers who want to engage in professional development, refresh or clarify their practice and get external input on their making strategies and Dramaturgs who want to learn from and with choreographers about the potential of their approach and forge relationships with new collaborators.

CoAD are excited to offer 5 bursaries, supported by DanceEast, DanceXchange, Pavilion Dance South West, Greenwich Dance and South East Dance, to enable 5 Artists to join the programme for a 50% discount. 

Lou Cope, Dramaturg & Director of CoAD, says: 

I am so excited to be developing this course. For years people have asked me if such a course exists, or they’ve asked me for mentoring or shadowing opportunities which never feel deep or far-reaching enough. But now is the right time to get it all out there – share everything I’ve ever learned, read or experienced – and really help people dig deep into their dramaturgical thinking and practices, in a private, supportive, rigorous and accessible context. 

Garry Stewart – Artistic Director of Australian Dance Theatre and collaborator with Lou:

This course is a brilliant opportunity for artists to develop their understanding of dramaturgy with one of the UK’s leading dance dramaturgs. Working with Lou online was both a pleasure and inspiring, and it’s great that people across the world can now get access to her work and experience.
