Applications are now open for UK-based dance makers to take part in Resolution, The Place’s annual festival of new dance and performance works by emerging artists. Choreographers and companies are invited to propose ideas for new work. More than 70 artists will be selected to create their works and have them performed in the festival, which runs from January to February 2018.

Successful applicants will benefit from a series of workshops run by industry professionals, covering all aspects of the business from lighting design to funding applications and marketing. Through the associated scheme Resolution Review, performances will be reviewed by established critics and by new writers. Over 28 years, the festival has been a launch pad for many of the UK’s leading dance names, including Kate Prince, Wayne McGregor, Luca Silvestrini and Drew McOnie.

Applications should take the form of a written online proposal with supporting video clips. The deadline is September 7, 2017. Visit to submit your application.
