Let’s Dance In the City Artist Call Out

Let’s Dance in the City was launched as part of Let’s Dance International Frontiers 2022, the annual festival of dance. We are reimagining and continuing to capture Black dance in the hopes to leave a visual legacy of Black British dancers, within the local areas of Leicester, Leeds, London and Newcastle.

Now more than ever it is important for artists to take ownership of public spaces, whether they are structures of power, places to gather or historic landmarks.  Dancers respond to the energy of the cities to which they are connected. 

The four selected dance artists will have the opportunity to choreograph this new responsive piece, whilst keeping in mind how will your movement reflect and respond to the surrounding environment? What a particular location means to yourself and the community? and how natural improvisation enhances the translation of choreographic thoughts within the dance film. 

Application coming soon
