Artist EOI / New Biennial Dance Festival

Artist EOI

New Biennial Dance Festival / 1–31 March 2023

A new biennial dance festival is coming. This will be the festival’s pilot year; an experiment.

This is a call for dance artists to propose ideas and projects for the festival to be supported, presented, and realised by up to 11 Festival Partners. The festival will feature all kinds of dance projects: shows, talks, films, public programs, sharings, workshops, labs, dinners, publications, gatherings, installations — both in-person and digitally. Dance projects must be led by independent dance artists and small to medium dance companies based in Australia. International collaborators are welcome.

For the 2023 Festival, Chunky Move will support 2 x independent artist-led programs for the Festival with an investment of $35,000 + in-kind. The lead artist for these programs has been confirmed.

Additionally, through this EOI, Chunky Move can provide a single opportunity for an artist/s to propose a one-off event. This may come in the form of a guided participatory experience, talk, screening, showing of a work-in-development (ready to share with an audience and not requiring development investment) or other.

Expressions of interest open Tuesday 31 May and close Monday 27 June 2022.
