The Outlet Dance Project invites artists who identify or have identified as women to submit an application to participate in our upcoming festival. We seek the work of choreographers (individual and/or companies) and filmmakers. The Outlet is committed to supporting all traditional and nontraditional dance forms. We strongly invite artists from traditionally under represented or marginalized communities to apply. The festival celebrates the intersections of visual and moving arts, exploring relationships between sculpture and dance, place and movement.

What we are looking for:

  • Site-specific choreography

  • Original choreography, in any genre, created for the stage

  • Dance films of site-specific choreography

The Outlet features site-specific dances, dances for the stage, and dance films. Half of the festival performances takes place in the beautiful East Gallery of the Seward Johnson Center for the Arts. This year we are also seeking at least 2 proposals for work in conversation with Elyn Zimmerman's installation in the East Gallery. The other half is outdoors – in and around the 42 acre park that is Grounds For Sculpture. Films will be shown on October 5, 2017 during the evening length Dance on Film portion of the Festival, in the beautiful Visitors' Center Screening Room of the Seward Johnson Center for the Arts.

Application information for staged and site-specific choreography can be found here. Sculpture options are here.

Application information about dance films can be found here.

Thank you!
