Member-as-Curator research bursaries awarded

In June, as part of our ongoing Arts Council England supported programme of Organisational and Programme Development, we launched an open call for ‘Member-as-Curator’ research bursaries, funded by The Choreographers Gallery Trust and Arts Council England.

We are pleased to announce that four £500 curatorial research bursaries have been awarded, to develop Chisenhale Dance public programmes for 2019:

Es Morgan, Joseph Morgan Schofield and Sara Sassanelli

move close is a club night bringing together dancing, experimental electronic music, and unannounced performance interventions from queer artists working across dance and live art. We believe in the transformational power of club dancing – as processing, immersion and escapism.  |

‘An attempt to exhaust’ will present performance in public space surrounding Chisenhale Dance Space. It is an opportunity to go out of the studio space into the wilderness and everydayness of city life. Performances will include variety of artists working with walking art, movement and city, body and space, parkour and l’art du déplacement.

Antonio de la Fe

As a choreographer, my practice has evolved into developing alternative ways of choreographing other than by fixing material in the body and in the studio. I have started calling this type of works Speculative Choreographies. But what would other choreographers and performance makers do of that name?

My curatorial provocations will form two strands: one investigating alternative performances of Family or Community that do not conform to ‘Mum, Dad, 2.4 kids’ and the second will explore what it means to perform colour, identity and heritage today.

The decisions were made by a panel of three other Members and Executive Producer Daniel Pitt.
