Pacific Dance New Zealand now invites New Zealand based Pacific Islands choreographers, directors and dancers to apply for the Pacific Dance Choreographic Lab 2013.

Choreographers are requested to submit an ‘expression of interest’ (below) to the Pacific Dance Choreographic Selection Committee 2013 no later than 5pm, Thursday 18th July, 2013.

To qualify for this project, choreographers must present a proposal that will include:

• A CV with references

• the concept (what is your dance about?)

• the intended length of the work

• how many dancers (a solo, duet, trio etc)?

All applicants must be of Pacific Islands descent, be an emerging to mid-career choreographer, demonstrate in their submission that they will be able to complete the choreographic lab and submit a new work that has not been performed previously.

This is a wonderful opportunity for Pacific Islands choreographers to create new works and have it promoted and developed. The three choreographers selected for the choreographic lab will be provided with:

• A dance studio equipped with a sound system

• Dancers

• A mentor

• An allowance during the three-week choreographic lab

• Publicity and promotional opportunities

Each work will be presented at the closing night of the Pacific Dance Choreographic Lab 2013 to be held at the Mangere Arts Centre – Nga Tohu o Uenuku in Mangere on Saturday the 2nd of November.

Location of project: This project will be presented as part of the Southside Arts Festival 2013.

All successful applicants will be notified in late-July and workshops will take place at the choreographers choosing from that date forward at several venues in Auckland.
