Call to Artists
Fusionworks Dance Company invites choreographers to submit their work to NECF 2017. The Nationally Emerging Choreographers Festival (formerly Northeast Choreographers Festival) will be presented in November of 2017 in Providence, RI. This year’s festival will showcase the works of at least two emerging and/or established choreographers from across the U.S.
“The NECF residency with Fusionworks Dance Company could not have been a more positive experience. It was my first choreographic residency, and the Artistic Director, Deb Meunier, and the dancers of the company welcomed me with open arms. All details were laid out ahead of time, my expectations as choreographer were organized and articulate, the dancers were such hard working and wonderful people to work with, and it was just an incredibly worthwhile and rewarding opportunity. I would love to be able to work with this company again and I cherish this experience.”
2016 NECF Chorographer Winnie Berger
Finalists will be paid a $1,000 stipend to do a five day residency in either July, August or September, during which they will set their work on Fusionworks Dance Company. All chosen artists will also teach a master class open to the community. Housing and rides to and from the airport or bus/train station will be provided by Fusionworks Dance Company for finalists. All invited choreographers are required to promote the project and to encourage community support.
