We are seeking applications from dance artists and choreographers interested in creating a new piece of performance between 5 and 30 minutes long for presentation as part of MicroMove during Summer Nights 2019.
A platform to present rigourous, innovative and dynamic dance works, MicroMove provides skills development and performance opportunities for West Australian dance artists and choreographers at all stages of their career.
MicroMove asks movement makers to step forward and take a risk. It asks for urgency and necessity; in 2019, what is it that drives you to create movement? Make a statement, be bold, explore your curiosities and question your creative practice.
The 2019 season will be curated by Laura Boynes, who will also provide mentorship for selected artists if requested. Works selected will be programmed between two and five nights of performance as part of the season, which will run 12 – 16 February 2019.
Through the presentation of a curated dance development and performance program, The Blue Room Theatre is aiming to provide opportunities to a broad range of dance artists while developing audiences in the FRINGE WORLD environment.
