Choreodrome 2020 Call Out

At The Place, our unique positioning within the dance industry allows us to offer artists at every stage of their career the chance to experiment and stimulate innovation. Through Choreodrome, our annual programme for artists with at least 3 years professional experience, makers are encouraged to explore new artistic territory via two strands: Research Residencies - where artists are commissioned to explore new creative ideas without the pressure of creating a finished product during the residency; and the Research Workshop - where artists can work with a ground-breaking facilitator to further their artistic skills. 

The current edition of Choreodrome will run from Mon 20 Jul – Sun 20 Sep 2020. 

  • Choreodrome Research Residencies – develop your own choreographic work or ideas. You will receive studio space and be invited to take part in work in progress sharings and weekly lunch-time get togethers, as well as receiving £1000. Artists from any discipline who wish to research an idea that has choreography or dance as a key component are welcome to apply. If you are working with hip hop, you may also apply for the Artists4Artists Programme. 
  • Choreodrome Research Workshops - participate in intensive creative workshops led by ground-breaking dance makers.  

Artists may apply for either or both the Residencies and Workshops strands.

Details and applications for this year’s Choreodrome Research Workshops will be available online in early 2020. 
If you have any questions about Choreodrome Research Residencies, including queries about the Artists4Artists and Wellcome Collection strands, we will be holding an Open Clinic on the 9th of January at The Place. If you would like to reserve a place at the Open Clinic please email   

Deadline to apply for Choreodrome Research Residencies: Sun 19 Jan 2020 at midnight.
