EOIs now open

Groundworks is an opportunity in 2022 for independent artists to present their work in a supported theatre setting. Groundworks is a platform that supports mid-length presentation for independent artists, allowing them to test ideas in front of an audience in a live-theatrical setting. Selected artists will have the opportunity to present their ideas in a fully produced season at the Dolphin Theatre with a production budget of $15000.

In 2022, Groundworks will be a double bill of independent contemporary dance from two choreographers/choreographic teams. It will be presented from 17-20 August at the Dolphin Theatre. Dance and physical theatre artists are invited to submit an expression of interest for inclusion in the program. Works should have had at least one development period, but do not have to be performance ready. Each work should be between 20 and 30 minutes in length.

You must be a STRUT Dance member to apply for this opportunity. If you are not a member, you will need to sign up HERE prior to submitting your application.
