2019 International Young Choreographer Project

Choreographic Opportunity in Taiwan

Working with eight choreographers in July 2019 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan

Three to four choreographers recommended by WDAAsian Pacific, one choreographer recommended by WDA-America, and one from Europe will be selected to attend the Young Choreographer Project in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. An additional three to four Taiwanese choreographers will also be selected to join the event. The funding is supported by National Culture and Arts Foundation, Bureau Culture Affairs of Kaohsiung City Government, and the Chin-Lin Foundation for Culture and Arts in Taiwan. The project is located in the city of Kaohsiung, in southern Taiwan. The tentative dates for the 2019 event are from July 1st to July 19th, with two performances taking place on the main stage of the theatre in the campus of Tsoying High School from July 20th to 21st.

Choreographers will be selected from lists of names recommended by WDA (Asian Pacific, America and Europe) country delegates. The deadline for the recommendation from each country delegate is January 30 with all documents required sent to Taiwan. Once selected, housing, local transportation, dancers, studios, publicity, production and office assistance will be offered. An honorarium will also be provided: US$ 800 for choreographers from Asian Pacific area and US$ 1200 for choreographers from America and Europe. Participants are responsible for airfare and local transportation between the airport and the stie.

The selected choreographers will set their dance on dancers who will be selected in Taiwan. It is recommended that only young choreographers who feel they can meet the challenges of producing a work under unfamiliar circumstances (and with unfamiliar dancers) should apply. The panel in each country and in Taiwan will also be making their selections based on the choreographer’s potential to become a significant contributor to the field in the future.

Each WDA (Asian Pacific, America and Europe) office will facilitate the selection process in its own country. The selection panel will be WDA network chair(s). Expressions of interest should address the following points:

  1. What you would gain from a professional experience such as this
  2. Why you would like to work in Asia
  3. A brief concept of your work
  4. A 200-word autobiography and a resume/CV

If you are short listed, you will be required to submit WDA (Asian Pacific, America and Europe) a link to an online video (YouTube or Vimeo) of a work sample of your recent choreography, either with a single dance piece or several excerpts (less than 20 minutes). You may also be invited to send up to three photos of your work, which is not compulsory, but will give WDA (Asian Pacific, America and Europe) selection board more ideas about your choreography.

Expressions of interest should EMAILED to the WDA (Asian Pacific, America and Europe) office of each country by January 10th.

Choreographers list who are recommended by the WDA (Asian Pacific, America and Europe) will be sent to Taiwan Office by January 30th. The result of the final selection will be announced by February 24th, 2019 on the WDA-AP website at http://www.wda-ap.org and also through a letter from the office in Taiwan.  Download Registration Form
