CALL FOR ENTRIES – APPLY NOW AT WWW.AEROWAVES.ORG
Aerowaves is a Europe-wide project started in 1996, which brings together dance specialists from 32 countries to look at the work of young choreographers. For the last 14 years this has resulted in ten performance opportunities at The Place in London as part of the Resolution! festival as well as many other informal presentations around Europe.
For the first time in 2009, over 70 additional performances were confirmed in 21 other European cities: Moscow, Oslo, Tallinn, Vilnius, Copenhagen, Dublin, Amsterdam, Luxembourg, Frankfurt, Prague, Poznan, Warsaw, Zurich, Lausanne, Bassano del Grappa, Rome, Porto, Limassol, Osijek and Zagreb. We anticipate a similar number of opportunities in 2010. Application for 2011 is open to any artists in geographical Europe (including the UK), although performances will not be offered in their country of residence.
Who is it for?
It’s for emerging choreographers and companies who have not yet done much touring abroad.
How does it work?
Artists complete an online application by 20 September 2010 and send 2 identical DVDs to London of the work they wish to present. They may now add performance dates for the proposed work under ‘Candidates’ in the Aerowaves calendar. The Aerowaves partners meet to assess the DVDs in late October and their advice helps the Presenters in choosing works for the following year. The performance opportunities above are confirmed; however, each year other informal opportunities arise and work has been presented through Aerowaves in the majority of the countries represented at the meeting.
