Wales dance Platform - call for submissions     

Wales dance Platform - call for submissions The call has gone out to Wales independent dance artists for submission for the third Wales dance Platform which this year will be spread out between Cardiff and Newport.

The three days of performances, films/videos, exhibitions and installations is an open event: where all professional work submitted that meets the criteria will be included and a priority for 2015 will be to provide a springboard for artists in advance of the networking opportunities that will be offered by British Dance Edition, which comes to Wales in March 2016.

The aim of the Platform’s is to present Wales-relevant, independent professional dance artists, to raise the profile of the art form with the public, strengthen relationships between artists and presenters, and enhance critical debate. Creu Cymru is the producer of Wales Dance Platform, working closely with, Chapter, Cardiff, The Riverfront, Newport, Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff, the artist-venue partnering scheme Dance Buddy through Creu Cymru’s Wales Dance Consortium and Coreo Cymru

Creu Cymru Director Deborah Keyser said that the 2014 Platform presented 30 Wales-relevant choreographers in a programme of 40 events, including performance, film, exhibitions, seminars, meetings and talks. With over 75 performers and artistic collaborators, the Platform drew more than 1,500 people to see the work, and created many new contacts and professional links.

This year’s platform will be at Friday 26 June Wales Millennium Centre on Friday, June 26,
Chapter on Saturday, June 27 and the action moves to The Riverfront, Newport on Sunday 28 June.

Deborah Keyser said, “The Platform is all about the artists: it’s self-selecting, so every eligible entry will be included. Submissions are welcomed from all professional Wales-based dance practitioners, as well as from other artists working in the field of dance – so alongside choreographers and performers, we’re encouraging dance photographers, visual artists and film-makers to submit work to the Platform.
“We have a wealth of independent dance artists in Wales, producing an incredible variety of work – Wales Dance Platform is about celebrating and showcasing that flourishing scene. If last year’s event is anything to go by, audiences will enjoy a rich range of activity over the weekend – from the passionate to the hilarious, from the explosive to the contemplative, from children’s performances to films and exhibitions.”
