Open Call for Commissions
Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company will award three small commissions for works to be included in the next edition of its annual festival of dance and movement. The festival will run between 20th and 27th February 2021.
The main festival programme will be made up of commissioned pieces made with the idea of being “pandemic adaptable”. To minimise risk of cancellations due to pandemic related restrictions on international travel we are asking for proposals from artists based in The Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland for new work or adapted existing work. The proposed works should not involve any international travel which might jeopardise performance should travel restrictions be in place.
There are three commissions available. One at £3000, one at £2500 and one at £1500. 50% of the commission fee will be paid in advance with the remainder payable on completion of the project.
– Artists applying must be based in Northern Ireland or The Republic of Ireland
– The proposed work should be new work or an appropriate adaptation of existing work.
– We are looking for proposals for “pandemic adaptable” work. Circumstances are likely to remain unpredictable and changeable for the foreseeable future, so we want to commission live work that will be able to be shared in most circumstances other than a complete societal shutdown.
Application deadline is Friday 23rd October with decisions announced by Friday 30th October.
