Green Street Studios announces the Spring 2013 cycle of its New Works Program
(formerly known as the Emerging Artists Award Program).
New Works Meetings: March 10, April 7, May 12 11-2:30 in studio 2
Performance May 24 and 25
Mentors Cheri Opperman and Alli Ross
The New Works Program is designed to provide infrastructure for choreographers, to create new work, and to provide deep, ongoing mentorship between experienced and early-to-mid-career choreographers. The Emerging Artist Award provides the opportunity for New England-based choreographers to create work at Green Street Studios from December 2012 to March 2013. Green Street Studios will provide choreographers with Mentor/Choreographers, and will provide 40 hours of free rehearsal space per awardee for the creation of new work. The new works by the awardees will premiere in a fully produced, shared concert at Green Street Studios on March 22nd & 23rd 2013 at 8pm (dress rehearsal March 21st at 8pm).
All awardees and their dancers will meet with the Mentor/Choreographers together 3 times in the process to show their ongoing work and to discuss/provide feedback. Scheduled group meetings with individual groups and mentors will take place several times over the rehearsal process to provide a forum for group discussion. For the final concert, choreographers will share all production responsibilities including but not limited to: marketing, public relations, program design, press release, costume design, and care of the performance space. Audience interaction is the final component of the New Works Program: following the final performance, a panel discussion open to the public will follow. The Mentor/Choreographer will moderate a Q & A discussion encouraging audience questions and comments directed to the choreographers.
