The National Rural Touring Forum (NRTF) has joined forces with The
Place, Take Art and China Plate to launch a new 3 year initiative for
touring to and making dance for rural areas, funded by Arts Council
England through their Strategic Touring programme.
We are seeking artists to take part in this project. There are opportunities to tour existing shows to rural locations, and we are offering one production award of up to £45,000 to make a new show for rural touring.
the Rural Touring Dance Initiative we seek to work with dance artists
to develop and tour new work to rural audiences. Dance is
underrepresented on the rural touring circuit and we want to increase
opportunities for rural audiences to experience brilliant new dance.
We’re looking for…
Artists who have a show which you think is ready to tour rurally, or ready with some adaptations, and is available to tour in autumn 2016 and/or spring 2017.
Artists who have an idea for a show you would like to make, which you think would work well on the rural touring circuit.
The deadline for applications to take part is 10am on Friday 11th September. Full details on the scheme and how to apply can be found on The Place website at www.theplace.org.uk/rural-touring
