Step 1: The Opportunity

The Opportunity Resolution 2019

  • If selected, your work will be shown at The Place as part of a triple bill in January or February 2019.
  • You will receive full technical and marketing support, including three technicians to run your performance and inclusion in the Resolution brochure.
  • Your performance will be reviewed by established and emerging critics for Resolution Review online.
  • You will be able to attend free and subsidised workshops designed specifically for Resolution choreographers to complement and inform the choreographic process.
  • You will receive a High Definition recording of your performance free of charge.

How it works

  • Potential income: The Theatre keeps the first £1605 of net box office sales per evening as a ‘first call’. All box office income above the £1605 net amount is shared equally between the three companies. Example: If the total net box office sales were £1905, each company would make £100.
  • Potential loss: If the net box office income is less than £1605, the shortfall amount will be split equally between the three companies. Example: If the total net box office sales were £1305, each company would owe the Theatre £100.
  • There are no upfront costs to the company.
  • Companies performing in Resolution for the first time are known as First Footing companies. As well as the tailored professional development workshops, First Footing companies benefit from subsidised studio space at The Place ahead of their performance. 
  • We welcome a select number of returning companies to Resolution – these are known as Evolution companies. As well as the tailored professional development workshops, Evolution companies benefit from free studio space at The Place in December ahead of their performance. 
  • If your application is successful then you will attend a Welcome and Briefing meeting which explains your commitment and financial deal, and for any Evolution artists this explains any changes from previous years.

Applications for Resolution 2019 will open at the start of Jun and close 6 Sep 2018
