Resolution at The Place

Resolution is The Place’s annual, new year festival of short dance and performance works by emerging artists. It has been a starting point for many choreographers over the 28 years that it has been running – including Wayne McGregor, Luca Silvestrini (Protein), Eva Recacha, Katie Prince (Zoonation), Drew McOnie and Barely Methodical Troupe (winner of the Total Theatre & Jacksons Lane Award for Circus).

As well as being a unique platform for artists to present their work on an established London stage, Resolution offers support and guidance throughout the process, from application to post-performance.

The selected shows will be performed at The Place as part of a triple bill in either January or February 2017.

Resolution is open to all UK-based choreographers whose work fulfils the following criteria:
• The work features live dance performance
• The choreographer is a professional artist who is not in full time education, unless a postgraduate student
• The choreographer must be a full-time resident in the UK between the application deadline and performance date (those resident in Europe should apply to Aerowaves)
• Every company member must be able to provide proof, where appropriate, of their eligibility to work in the UK
• If selected, the work applied with should be the same as the work that is performed.
• The company will not present the work within 20 miles of the theatre for a period of three months either side of Resolution 2017
• The work is between 15 and 25 minutes long
• The work has simple technical requirements (each company will have a maximum of three hours technical preparation in the theatre on the day of the performance)
• Every Company member is over 18 years of age
• The work was not made whilst the choreographer was an undergraduate student
