Greenwich Dance and Trinity Laban together…
will be commissioning a collection of extraordinary new works for performance in 2017/18. Compass Commissions is The Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership’s flagship artist scheme supporting selected UK-based artists throughout the process of creation. The programme enables innovative concepts to thrive by offering a unique set of resources: cash funds, extensive creation space, advice and production development support. The performances that follow welcome new and existing audiences and raise the standards of productions available for national and international touring.
Deadline for submissions: MIDDAY, Friday 21 October 2016
The Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership looks forward to a range of submissions by artists who may or may not have a previous relationship with either/both organisations. We hope that the simplicity of the online application form will render the process as unintimidating as possible.
Strands of work
The offer will support the creation of new works from the following three strands:
A site-sensitive performance, intervention or installation which can be re-imagined and toured to a range of non-conventional spaces.
A work conceived for performance in a conventional theatre setting which will stand alone as a full performance event with potential to tour to dance/performance venues, nationally and internationally.
Work for a family audience
A work which will stand alone as a full performance event with potential to tour to dance/performance venues, nationally and internationally. The work may be conceived for conventional theatre venues but other modes of presentation will be considered.
