Commissions for Round Two have now been awarded
ROUND THREE: COMING SOON
DCNW has been inviting north west dance artists and organisations to create or develop work which explores the future of dance.
Through commissioned Dance Labs, showcase events and sharing knowledge, DCNW is looking to re-create the future of dance with more people dancing from more backgrounds in more dance styles. The Dance Labs, part of the commissions programme, are set to support artists and organisations to adapt to creative life post COVID, to resolve challenges and to find new opportunities.
The programme has invited NW-based dancers, dance creatives and organisations to create new or develop existing work, explore opportunities for research and development, collaborate with others and further dance careers and productions.
The programme has been striving to challenge inequalities and make space to share ideas, performances and knowledge with other artists, professionals and venues. The Dance Lab commissions have been open and flexible, and have actively encouraged dance from all sorts of practice.
The DCNW Research Programme wants to reach more people from more backgrounds, both professional and personal, and supports people developing a proposal or project.
Round one commissions for the DCNW Research Programme were awarded in February 2022. Discover the projects commissioned for this round.
Round two commissions for the DCNW Research Programme were awarded in May 2022. Discover the projects commissioned for this round.
Dance Consortia North West is delighted to recognise the support of Arts Council England for its programme of research to find new ways of making and sharing dance.
