Pushing the Boundaries:  Four Intersections of Dance
FOUR DAYS OF DANCE   April 16 - 19, 2014

2014  Four Days Piece Submission Form
Deadline for submission: Monday, March 17, 2014

This year’s concert will challenge local choreographers to push the boundaries of how dance can be communicated.  We are asking all choreographers to expand their dance making methods by incorporating one of these 4 strands into your work. The performances will not only highlight choreographic creativity, but will serve as a deeper investigation on these topics. 

PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES:  FOUR INTERSECTIONS OF DANCE
Interaction (sensorial, communication, expressing, sensors/triggers, projection technology)
Definition (idea, perspective, context, meaning, purpose, representation, social/political message)
Transformation (journey, metaphor, experience, altering environment, costumes that become props)
Experimentation (form, time, space, body/ physicality, video, interactivity, light)
  

Along with incorporating one of these topics into your work, all choreographers are invited to observe/ participate in the Bridgman/ Packer Dance workshop being hosted by HCC Dance Program.  Workshop times are Tuesday, February 11th from 12:45- 3:50pm, Wednesday, February 12th from 12:45- 3:50 pm, Thursday, February 13th from 12:45- 3:50 and from 6:00 -9:00 pm, Friday, February 14th from 11:00 - 4:00 pm and an informal showing at 6:00 pm.   It is our hope that the workshop bridges the ideas of dance and technology into our theme.  Pieces that begin to emerge from the workshop showing can then continue to be developed into work submitted for these performances. 

Guidelines for submitting work:
· Applications must be submitted via google docs link and must contain a link to your work
· Work must relate to overall theme and follow one of the strands
· Only new work that has not been seen in the Tampa Bay area will be accepted.
· Due to limits of time, each group piece should be under 10 minutes and solos under 7 minutes.
· Work should be at a Professional level.
· Submit work by Deadline:  Monday, March 17th by 11:59 pm.  There is no submission fee.
