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. 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.
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.
