On Wednesday 8th February 2017, Bath Spa University, Bath Dance and Theatre Bristol will be presenting a platform for graduate performance work.

This is an open call out to dance artists who have graduated in the past five years to platform creative ideas already in progress before a live audience. EVOLVE Graduate Dance Platform is specifically targeted towards artists who have a connection to the South West region.

We are looking for 3-4 dance works in progress that are between 5 and 15 minutes in length. These could be concept beginnings or an extract from a longer work, whatever it is; we are interested to hear from you.

We aim for the platform to be an opportunity for graduates to sustain and continue to experiment with their creative practice. Evolve will create an open, interactive and authentic dialogue between performer and the audience to nurture the development of ideas.

Post-EVOLVE, graduates will have optional access to individual CPD/mentoring support to reflect and review their feedback and inform their practice. Previous artistic mentors included Karla Shacklock, Laila Diallo and Lois Taylor and CPD support included transport to present at Testing Ground and access to Master-classes.

The deadline for submissions will be Friday 16 December with successful applicants hearing from us by Wednesday 21 December 2016.

For an application form please email Fleur Hoefkens-Lee, Creative Producer for Bath Dance at fleur@bathdance.net
