Choreographic fellowship applications called for

Creative New Zealand calls for
applications for choreographic fellowship

Creative New Zealand is calling for applications from senior New Zealand choreographers for the 2004 Creative New Zealand Choreographic Fellowship.

Introduced last year, this annual fellowship is worth $65,000 making it the largest choreographic fellowship or award available in New Zealand. Deadline for applications are due by June 30.

The fellowship is for choreographers who have already produced a significant body of work and is intended to support them to develop new practices, undertake specific research, or deepen their skill and knowledge base. The recipient will be required to complete a project involving creative work and/or professional development within 12 months of the start of the project.

The fellowship was introduced by Creative New Zealand, as a result of recommendations in Creative New Zealand's dance strategy, Moving to the Future: Ngä Whakanekeneke atu ki te Ao o Apöpö, the result of 18 months of extensive consultation with the dance sector.

In 2003 the inaugural recipient of the fellowship was choreographer and filmmaker Shona McCullagh. On receiving the fellowship she said,

"This fellowship allows me to feel totally supported and encouraged to continue pursuing my craft and develop my identity as a New Zealand artist. For the first time in my career, I will have adequate time and resources to investigate new directions in my work, while researching and developing a live work with global potential."

Murray Shaw, Chair of the Arts Board of Creative New Zealand, says that the choreographic fellowship was introduced to offer much needed on-going support for senior choreographers.

"The Creative New Zealand Choreographic Fellowship offers recognition to senior New Zealand choreographers. It also acknowledges that choreographers need time to research new material and refine their practice without the pressure of preparing for a performance."
