Since its inception Beacons Festival has showcased a hand picked selection of roaming performance around the festival site, from the annual Chicken Shop Shakespeare to last year’s larger-than-life #Visitors by Jordan Massarella Dance. This year, for the first time, Beacons is working in partnership with us – Yorkshire Dance – to offer the most exciting and innovative performance projects the opportunity to appear at this year’s festival to an audience of over 7,500 festival-goers!
We are inviting applications from collectives, companies and individuals to bring existing or new dance and performance work to this year’s event. We are seeking work that will delight, amaze, intrigue and engage the Beacons audience!
Beacons Festival takes place from 7 – 10 August 2014, on the Funkirk Estate near Skipton, North Yorkshire.
Successful applicants will be selected by a panel of industry professionals (selected by Yorkshire Dance and Beacons Festival) and will receive:
- A free weekend ticket for each performer and catering on day of performance.
- Inclusion on the Beacons Festival website, in social media and the printed programme.
A small number of selected projects will also receive:
- Access to a free rehearsal space to develop the performance, courtesy of Yorkshire Dance.
- Small bursaries to contribute towards travel, production costs and expenses.
