The Outlet Dance Project seeks:

  • Site-specific choreography

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

  • Dance films of site-specific choreography

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.


The Outlet features site-specific dance, dances for the stage, and dance films. Films will be shown on October 4, 2018 during the evening length Dance on Film portion of the Festival, in the Screening Room of the Seward Johnson Center for the Arts. Several of the films selected will be looped throughout the weekend of October 6-7th.

On the Day of Dance, October 7th, half of the performances take 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 oof, James Carl's installation there. The other half is outdoors – in and around the 42 acre park that is Grounds For Sculpture.

Dress Rehearsal takes place on the day of the performance (October 7th, 2018) from 9 am to 1 pm. Each group will be given a time slot. We provide sound equipment. For those performing in the East Gallery, our marley floor is not sprung and is 25' wide x 20' long. Photographs will be taken during dress rehearsal, filming will occur during the performance. Professional photos and video of your performance will be provided to you after the festival. 

Application information for staged and site-specific choreography can be found here. This year's sculpture options for site-specific proposals are here.


Dance film application can be found here.
