Choreography fellowship at Rambert

Posted on May 30, 2017

Julie Cunningham

Rambert is inviting applications for the next Leverhulme choreography fellowship. This is the second of three year-long fellowships, supported by the Leverhulme Trust, which aim to help professional dancers make the transition to become full-time working choreographers. The first fellowship went to Julie Cunningham (pictured).

The fellowship is open to artists who may still be primarily working as performers, or who may have stopped performing within the last two years. It offers a creative base to develop, with access to Rambert’s studios on London’s South Bank, to Rambert’s own work, plus funding for travel, accommodation, research and development.

The role is flexible, designed to allow the chosen artist to combine it with other existing or new projects. Artists do not need to be based in the UK, but Rambert hopes that part of their work for the fellowship will take place at its London home. The chosen artist will receive a fee of £15,000. Applications close on June 19, 2017. For more information, visit
