Open Call Deadline: 12noon, Friday 09 January 2015

Dance Ireland in association with Dublin Dance Festival and Culture Ireland, invites proposals for consideration for Re-Presenting Ireland: a showcase initiative by Culture Ireland, Dance Ireland and Dublin Dance Festival.

Re-Presenting Ireland is an opportunity for national and international programmers and audiences to experience some of the work currently being made in Ireland. It is our intention to curate one studio mixed bill of ‘works in various stages of development’ that are representative of current dance practice and of the very highest standards.

It is also a networking opportunity for national dance makers to present themselves to their international peers and to press during the festival, with the attendant panel discussions and festival encounters.

For 2015 Re-Presenting Ireland will take the form of one studio mixed bill platform to be held over two weekends at DanceHouse (Fri 22, Sat 23 and Fri 29, Sat 30 May). This is an opportunity to present work in a studio-based showcase (up to a max length 15mins) with minimum set-up requirements. Please note, while there will be a small honorarium to cover expenses, no rehearsal or production costs are covered; applicants are responsible for the total costs of remounting their work.#

  • All applicants must be Dance Ireland members;
  • Proposals will be considered by a panel, comprising Culture Ireland, Dance Ireland, Dublin Dance Festival and national/international colleagues;
