Series 8:08 provides participating choreographers with a performance venue, stage manager, technicians, Resident Outside Eye, general publicity, a fee to help cover the costs of performing, a DVD of the performance, written comments from the audience members and informal discussions after each show.
Choreographers are welcome to participate in Series 8:08’s Resident Outside Eye (ROE) program, an opportunity for all CPW choreographers to receive a more in-depth written response from an established dance artist on their works-in-progress. Our ROE’s for the 2012/13 season are Susie Burpee, Susan Cash, Heidi Strauss, Christopher House and Sasha Ivanochko.
Payment policy for CPW Choreographers: The choreographers are guaranteed $125 each. Any box office revenue over the amounts paid to the choreographers is split between the choreographers.
Choreographers wishing to show their work-in-progress at a regular CPW will also have an opportunity to apply to show a further iteration of their work in the following month. There are four (4) TAKE TWO slots per session. The TAKE TWO program also includes one (1) small RESIDENCY per session in partnership with HUB 14 and Dovehouse Dance Ballroom. NEW – This season each residency will include our ROE*.
The selected choreographers will then present their work-in-progress again in our TAKE TWO platform.
Series 8:08 is initiating this program to:
- Offer choreographers and performers the opportunity to be informed from the initial performance experience and feedback from a regular CPW, and to identify how this feedback supports their work and creative process.
- Support interested choreographers to continue to develop their work in a residency (in partnership with Hub 14 and Dovehouse Dance Ballroom), while considering the feedback from the audience and ROE.
- Offer choreographers a second opportunity to show their work-in-progress at a more developed stage, in order to help artists receive more in-depth feedback.
Interested choreographers must apply to a regular CPW for either October or January and send in a second application to Take Two and must be available to present again in November or February.
Limited space is available and TAKE TWO is a first come first serve platform. There is only one (1) RESIDENCY slot available per TAKE TWO session. TAKE TWO residencies require an additional application to be completed.
Thursday, September 27th 5pm– for the November Residency and Take Two slots. Thursday, December 6th 5pm – for the February residency and Take Two slots. Residency/Take Two participants must show their work in a regular CPW prior to their Take Two date and residency.
