PROVIDENCE, RI: Choreography Opportunity - Northeast Choreographers Festival
Fusionworks Dance Company
Fusionworks Dance Company invites choreographers from the Northeastern region of United
States to submit their work to the 2016 Northeast Choreographers Festival to be presented in
November of 2016 in Providence, RI. This year’s festival will showcase the works of four
emerging and established choreographers from the Northeastern U.S. Three finalists will be paid
a $1,000 stipend to do a week-long residency in either May, June, or August, during which they
will set their work on Fusionworks Dance Company. One runner-up choreographer, who must
specifically be from Rhode Island or South Eastern Massachusetts, will be paid a $500 stipend to
set his/her work on the youth company, Fusionworks II. The runner-up must be able to work on
Friday evenings at the Fusionworks studio in Lincoln, RI for a minimum of eight consecutive
Fridays in September and October. All four chosen artists will also teach a master class open to
the community. Housing, food, and rides to and from the bus/train station will be provided by
Fusionworks Dance Company for finalists. The 2016 Northeast Choreographer's Festival is a
Kickstarter project. All invited choreographers are required to promote the project and to
encourage community support.
