Dance Umbrella's structure undergoes some changes

Published: 23 January 2013

Dance Umbrella will host the 25th edition of the open and free platform for new contemporary choreography and dance this year. It will be part of the Arts Alive International Festival 2013 and due the current funding situation and time and allocations for the programming, the structure of the festival was reviewed and has undergone some changes.

Dance Umbrella will remain a platform for new contemporary choreography and dance and will now be structured as follows:

The Main programme: only commissioned work from South African choreographers, invited international works and selected works from the Dance Forum residency programme will be featured.

The Student/Young Choreographers programme: this is a new addition to Dance Umbrella’s programme - students who are focusing on choreography as a career, and young artists who have created at least two works, are invited to enter a work that does not exceed 20 minutes.

Stepping Stones programme: only youths, community groups and choreographers that are not working regularly will be considered. The running time may not exceed 10 minutes. Stepping Stones is an important platform to test new work for choreographers and companies and often new talent is spotted here.

Entries close on Friday, 29 March and late entries will not be accepted.
