A brand-new creative residency programme from McNicol Ballet Collective offering paid opportunities for composers and choreographers to experiment together at DanceEast, with the Collective’s professional dancers.

Where: DanceEast, UK

When: 15 – 20 July 2024

Deadline for applications: Monday 15 January 2024

Compositions & Configurations will foster collaboration between dance and music, continuing McNicol Ballet Collective’s mission to shape the future of contemporary ballet and original composition.

Successful applicants will have the opportunity to explore original music and choreographic concepts during a one-week studio residency at DanceEast with McNicol Ballet Collective’s professional dancers and live musicians. The residency programme also offers pre-residency meetings and workshops, guest speaker sessions, and mentoring and support from a dramaturg throughout the creative process.

The residency concludes with an informal sharing of the artist’s work to an invited audience and industry professionals.

Following the residency, McNicol Ballet Collective plans to commission at least one choreographer and composer to further develop their work and present it as part of the Company’s 2024/2025 season.
