Step 2: Criteria

Applications for Resolution 2020 will open in June and close midday Thu 5 Sep 2019

  • Resolution is open to all UK-based choreographers and performance makers whose work fulfil the following criteria:
  • The work features live performance.
  • By the time of the festival (Jan-Feb 2020) the choreographer will not be in full time education, unless they are a postgraduate student. 
  • The choreographer must be a full-time resident in the UK between the application deadline and performance date.     
  • Every company member must be able to provide proof, where appropriate, of their eligibility to work in the UK.
  • If selected, the work that is performed should be the same as the work that was applied with.    
  • The work is between 15 and 25 minutes long.          
  • The work has simple technical requirements (each company will have a maximum of three hours technical preparation in the theatre on the day of the performance).
  • The work can be shown in an end-on theatre seating configuration.          
  • Every company member is over 18 years of age, strictly no youth companies.
  • The choreographer MUST attend the compulsory meetings at The Place stipulated in the opportunities info page and in the application form.

Priorities for Selection

  • Resolution is always over-subscribed. When making your application, please think about our priorities for selection, which are:        
  • Work that is contemporary in its content and ideas whatever its style or form.
  • Work that involves choreographers, dancers, performers and other collaborators who have completed full-time vocational training. No youth companies please.
  • Group work rather than solos.             
  • Work by experienced dancers or performance makers at the outset of their choreographic career.            
  • Work by artists who are actively pursuing a career in professional dance and performance.
  • Completed application forms including all performers information such as training and role in the production.
  • We are interested in strong video links to support your application. Please only show choreographic ideas relating to the work described in the application, or previous choreographic works which are similar in style, or show a clear progression. These should be maximum 5 minutes in length.
