Emphasizing the articulation of a choreographer’s ideas in both movement and language, Work Up artists are selected through a two-tiered application process including a written submission and a live audition.
Nine works will be selected for presentation on three shared programs in March 2020. Selected artists receive a $1,000 performance fee, 30 hours of granted rehearsal space, and professional development opportunities at Gibney throughout the season.
HOW TO APPLY
This year’s application process will function differently than past years. An application lottery will open at 10:00 am on Thursday, September 12, and remain open for 24 hours. Artists who would like to apply may use the lottery form to submit their contact information during this time. Artists who are selected through this lottery will then be invited to submit a full application.
The application questions and program guidelines are available now, and we will host two free info sessions prior to the lottery to help you prepare.
