The Bonnie Bird New Choreography Award is a biennial award of £10,000, open to applications from choreographers and artists working choreographically, who are UK-based, and have been working professionally for more than five years.

The award has been created to support a bespoke range of activities, identified by an artist that will support their overall creative development, rather than producing a completed new work. The ambition is to support a programme of individual research that can effect a step change in the artist’s practice, with the potential to impact nationally.

Proposals are welcomed from choreographers/artists working choreographically in any style or genre. This can, but need not necessarily include, artists working with an experimental or interdisciplinary approach to dance, choreography and performance. The overriding criteria is that we are seeking convincing, ambitious and clearly articulated ideas.

Where: UK

When: 2017-19

Deadline for applications: 5pm, Friday 27th October 2017
