TEST – A 2 day dramaturgy intensive

South East Dance and Pavilion Dance South West present TEST,  a two-day dramaturgy intensive on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th September at Pavilion Dance South West, Bournemouth.

Deadline for applications: 31st August 2015

All applicants will be notified by Monday 7th September.

TEST is a two-day workshop, followed by online support, for choreographers/makers interested in exploring the potential value of involving a dramaturg, or dramaturgical practice, in their work.

Test is produced by South East Dance, in partnership with Pavilion Dance South West, and is part of South East Dance’s Dramaturg in Residence programme.

Working with South East Dance Dramaturg in Residence Lou Cope, the weekend will offer a very practical introduction to dramaturgy as a process and product-shaping practice. We will examine and seek to evolve the work of each participant, and will provide them with strategies to develop their work and the way it is made.

In addition to spaces for six choreographers/makers, there will be two spaces for emerging dramaturgs. The group will work together with Lou to understand the creative possibilities and opportunities of ‘thinking dramaturgy’. All participants will receive a bursary of £300 to cover travel and accommodation.

To apply to take part in this workshop as either a choreographer/maker or dramaturg, please complete the application form below. Deadline for applications is August 31st.

All applicants will be notified by Monday 7th September. Please send your application to:
