(Part of Dancin’ Oxford 2018)

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS!  (Deadline: Tuesday 8 May 9am)

Oxford Dance Forum is delighted to be once again curating this evening of work, as part of Dancin’ Oxford’s Summer Festival programme.

Up to five artists / companies will be selected to present & showcase new work as part of the evenings’ programme. Pieces can be up to a maximum of 15 mins in length and must be performance-ready for a fee paying audience. They can be works still in progress but must be further developed than scratch stage.

There will be full technical support for the work and dress rehearsals will take place on the day of the performance. Please note that all artists / companies selected must be available for a technical rehearsal slot during the day and a full dress run prior to the show. Professional photographs will be taken during the Dress Rehearsal and will be shared with each artist following the event to be used as promotion for the development of your work.

We are opening a call for any Oxfordshire-based dance artist to submit an application to show new work. Proposals are welcome from artists outside of Oxfordshire but priority will be given to artists based locally.
