Choreographic Program 2019

For the first time DRILL is offering the opportunity for aspiring makers to create and present their own short dance works, as a part of our inaugural Choreographic Program.

Through a new partnership with Tasdance, Artistic Director Adam Wheeler, alongside DRILL Artistic Associate Angela Barnard, will mentor young dance makers as they create and present their own short dance works. Over four weeks participants will be given space, guidance, and provocation while undertaking a choreographic exploration that is of interest to them.

In partnership with Salamanca Arts Centre, participants will be invited to use the entire building and grounds during their choreographic exploration. DRILL has been creating site-specific dance work since 2012, and our young choreographers will be encouraged to consider the alternative spaces available, and create work that is shaped by and responds to this unique Tasmanian building.

The works will be shared with invited guests, providing a supportive platform for audience engagement and feedback. DRILL will also invite a dance reviewer to give critical feedback to each choreographer.

Interested participants must apply below by September 25th.
