Resolution exists to support and celebrate UK emerging artists. Every year we welcome over 70 UK artists to create and perform work for one of the most exciting and established London performance festivals.
Artists learn from industry professionals through supportive and practical workshops, and then present their work at The Place theatre to an audience of up to 300, including industry critics.
We invite choreographers and companies to propose exciting ideas for new work that they really believe in.
Please note we cannot accept applications outside of the allocated application period.
Any UK artists working in live performance can take part in Resolution. Dance & Physical Theatre, Hip Hop, South Asian dance, Circus and live arts are all welcomed at Resolution. This is our biggest open call out and the panel read hundreds of applications. What we want to know is: who you are and what your idea is. We are looking for ideas for works that are 15-25 minutes in length, and we are interested in choreographers who really want to take part in the journey of Resolution; from learning and refining your skills through the tailored workshops, to promoting and performing your work at the festival.
Who can’t apply? Anyone outside the UK; anyone who will still be in education at the time of the festival, any youth companies or anyone under 18yrs.
Please note that that if successful you must agree to not show the work three months either side of the Resolution performance date.
