BONNIE BIRD NEW CHOREOGRAPHY AWARD-
THE AWARD:

The Bonnie Bird New Choreography Award is a biennial award of £10,000. This award is open to choreographers and artists working choreographically, based in the UK, who have been working professionally for more than five years (excluding study). Please note, however, that current MA and PhD students are not eligible to apply. The award period will be negotiated with the applicant but will generally last between 1-2 years.

The new Choreography award aims to engage with one choreographer to support a programme of individual research that can effect a step change, developing their future work/practice to the highest quality, with the potential to impact both nationally and internationally.

The award also has been created to support a project that asks questions about choreography and addresses what it might currently mean to work with the body, dance, movement and choreography.

THE AWARDEE RECEIVES:

£10,000 bursary payable in instalments against agreed milestones, with the final payment being made on the receipt/delivery of the final project presentation
Ongoing, regular support from an experienced Creative Producer* in shaping a programme of research and development during the period of the award
Access to the experience and expertise of the voluntary BBCF Board of Trustees and Advisors (Click here for a list)

The fund will select a new awardee for the Bonnie Bird New Choreography Award. Applications are open from Friday 11 April 2015 and the deadline for receipt of applications is Thursday 11 June 2015 at 6pm.
