Big Pulse Open Air Commissions - OPEN CALL

Big Pulse Open Air Commissions - OPEN CALL

As one of the partners of Big Pulse Dance Alliance (BPDA), we are delighted to launch a new series of co-commissions for free, outdoor dance performances for the people of Europe

BPDA is a 4-year partnership (2021-2024) of 12 European dance festivals and institutions united by their passion to promote, strengthen and broaden the reach of the contemporary dance sector.

With this series of Open Air Commissions, our aim is to bring artists and audiences together. To present bold, captivating choreography that celebrates our creative imaginations through the power of the body in motion.

We are inviting Expressions of Interest from artists interested in developing portable, ecologically aware choreographic ideas with the 12 pan-European BPDA partners.

The co-commissions are aimed at a small creative team of up to six people touring to create / re-create performances with local participants in a series of public spaces, supported by the BPDA partners.

Deadline for Expression of Interest: Friday 16 April 2021
