Shake Alive 2016

Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand is leaping into 2019 with another new programme –

SGCNZ Dance Nimble Soles

In association with DANZ and its NZ Dance Week, SGCNZ is offering the opportunity for an item to be choreographed, in any dance genre and ethnicity, of up to 3 minutes for between 2 and 25 dancers of any age. They will be performed on International Dance Day – Monday 29 April, hosted at Hannah Playhouse at 7.30pm, with an afternoon session as well if interest demands.

Music must be original, out of copyright or from the APRA/Creative Commons/Free Music Archives.
If this is flouted, the Group Manager/Coordinator will be responsible for any fines or outcomes.

Lighting will be general wash with no or minimal set – 2 minute set up and strike.

Spoken words may be incorporated, but it is first and foremost, a dance work. Technical specifications for the Hannah Playhouse stage here.

Write 50-60 words suitable for the programme to describe how your item was inspired by and reflects the specific Shakespeare play and/or characters you have chosen.

This is not a competition. Two or three items may be chosen to be performed in SGCNZ’s National University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival Showcase on 2 June at the Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington.

Entry $10 per person.The Criteria and Registration form is available here and on the DANZ website
