Gati Summer Dance Residency 2013: Open Call + Application Form
This piece centres around 100 works of 100 choreographers and is inspired by the text/painting"The Hot One Hundred" by British artist Peter Davies.
Brazilian choreographer Cristian Duarte proposes a dance list that has no valuation by numbers and is made by manipulation, appropriation and the mixing of content and choreographic material. The list can be found at: www.lote24hs.net.This is a UK premiere.
Cristian Duarte choreographed pieces for Transition Dance Company, amongst others, and collaborated internationally with artists including Thelma Bonavita and Thiago Granato. He currently coordinates the Artistic residency project LOTE# (supported by Sao Paolo Municipality Cultural Department).
‘Cristian Duarte exposes the multiplicity of choreographers that marked his route as a dancer. His dance unites them, besides loans and techniques, it awakens the ghosts that inhabit a body-landscape.’ Gérard Mayen presenting the work at CNDC
There will be a post-show discussion with Cristian hosted by Simon Ellis.
Price: £15 (£12)
We are excited to invite you to join us at Creating in the Moment, a week-long intensive Lab for disabled and non-disabled dancers, performers and makers.
Two years after our hugely successful International Summer Lab at London’s Southbank Centre, Candoco is heading north with an exciting residential Lab programme delivered in partnership with Live at LICA (Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts). From Sunday 4 to Saturday 10 August 2013, we invite you to engage with Candoco’s working practice, exploring your own interests and impulses through improvisation.
This was my first time in an integrated setting and it has made me think a lot about what work I find interesting, how a choreographer approaches such a wide variety of people and how integrated dance enriches artistic process. This week has made me question why people are so attached to ‘trad’ body aesthetics and the wisdom and fullness that’s gained by using a much larger spectrum of society in dance
The fee for the Lab is £395 and includes 6 nights accommodation in the beautiful grounds of Lancaster University and full board (breakfast, lunch and dinner). To take advantage of our early bird offer of £375 apply before Friday 26 April 2013.

A seminar organised by Dance UK for dance managers & self-managed artists, part of The Business of Dance training programme

Fundraising for Artistic Projects is part of Dance UK’s new Business of Dance Stepping Stones training series. The short sharp three hour session is aimed to provide practical knowledge and information sharing for self-managed dance artists, company dancers looking to develop their own work, and independent dance managers who want to develop their skills.
Sarah Shead, freelance arts manager, gives an hour long training session focusing on:
• the types of funding available
• identifying local funds open to artists
• an overview of Arts Council England Grants for the Arts funding
• top tips on how to write successful funding applications
A panel of independent local dance artists, including Hakeem Onibudo (Impact Dance) and Rachel Birch-Lawson then share their personal stories of how they have raised funds to create their own works.
Dance UK recently organised the same training session in Leeds. One of the dancers who attended said about the event:
“It was very relaxed and quite intimate. It was nice to meet different artists from different fields and to learn from their experience. What I found most useful was learning about how to apply for funding. It can seem a bit daunting but the speakers were helpful and gave very useful information”.
The Business of Dance is presented in association with Independent Dance Managers Network (IDMN) and Sadler’s Wells. Thank you to Sadler’s Wells generously donating the venue for free.
