After a successful initial event in October 2013, Hull Dance is pleased to hold a second Hull Dance Prize.
You are invited to submit an idea though an open application process with the potential to win a commissioning prize. A panel of industry specialists will choose five shortlisted choreographers to show their work. The TWO evenings of dance will encourage audience members to apply their critical faculties through audience response technology equipment and vote for their favourite dance piece from the five presented. This means each shortlisted company will have TWO chances to woo the audiences and win £500.
A prize of £1,500 will be awarded at the end of the second evening by a panel of dance specialists. This money will fund the artist/company in Hull to develop their work further through space, time and advice tailored to what the company and panel feel they need through Hull Dance. All choreographers who have their work performed will receive structured feedback from the panel and will be given the opportunity to share skills and practice with their fellow nominees.
