Here are some projects I have worked on since establishing a freelance practice in 2015.
Between Summer 2017 and March 2018 I was Associate Director of Dance4 in Nottingham. During that time I provided ongoing support around artist development and international strategies, the development of the Nottdance festival, and provided additional artistic leadership support to the organisation as a whole.
During the summer of 2017 I worked as Interim Administrative Director, Theatre and Artist Development at The Place, providing some oversight, planning and management support during a period of staffing change.
Between May 2016 and July 2017 I was Associate Director at Greenwich Dance covering some aspects of the Artistic Director role during Kat Bridge's maternity leave.
In 2015 I spent six months as Interim Artistic Director of Yorkshire Dance, covering Wieke Eringa's adoption leave.
National Dance Network
In late 2015/early 2016 I completed a consultation project for the National Dance Network, talking to artists, programmers, producers and others around existing and future models of national and international showcasing for UK dance. This work is informing the development of a showcasing strategy for dance in the UK.
International artist residency and mobility
In 2016/17 I worked with Dance4, South East Dance and Yorkshire Dance on the development of a project bringing together a group of like-minded UK and international programmers for a long-term programme of residency and research activity with a selected group of UK artists. The project aims to create increased international connectivity and mobility for these artists through an alternative to traditional showcasing models. The project is currently on hold while funding is secured.
Artists curating dance
This is a project I developed with Yorkshire Dance, funded by Jerwood Charitable Foundation. It brings together 6 artists (Amy Bell, Lydia Cottrell, Gillie Kleiman, Grace Surman, Sophie Unwin and Adam Young) with some experience of curation, to provide a framework of funds and peer support for them to realise curatorial concerns in an event or festival. The project culminates in several events across 2017.
