Open Call for Choreographers: Emergence 20/21

South Dublin Arts Office and Dance Ireland are pleased to announce the choreographic mentoring programme, EMERGENCE, is now open for applications.

EMERGENCE places young choreographers in a professional mentoring programme to develop a dance piece for performance.
The young choreographers will go through a journey of creating their own works of art to be viewed.

EMERGENCE 2021 has been revised and re-imagined for our current climate.
Participants will be mentored by professional Irish based choreographers: John Scott, Jessie Keenan and Lucia Kickham as well as participate in additional workshop sessions with specialists from dance and performance fields.

Mentoring sessions will be held both virtually and when appropriate, live in person adhering to social distancing rules. Workshops and sharings will take place either at the DanceHouse following their COVID 19 Policy for using the rehearsal spaces or via Zoom sessions.
