Dance Critics Association Fellowship Program

1 post in this topic

DCA is now accepting applications for two available Emerging Writers

Fellowships to the "Fresh Terrain" festival being held Jan. 23-26 at the

University of Texas in Austin. DCA also is looking for mentors to represent

DCA at the festival.

Applications for fellows must be received by Wed. Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. EST. DCA

members interested in serving as mentors also should notify DCA of their

interest by Wed. Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. EST.

The festival, an interdisciplinary event that will encompass dance, theater,

music and visual arts, is being presented by U-Texas and P.S. 122 in New

York. In keeping with the interdisciplinary theme, DCA members will be

working with their counterparts from the theater, music and visual arts

critic associations.

For this festival, P.S. 122 and U-Texas are bringing together individual

artists and groups to

work on new collaborative pieces. Everything presented will be a new work.

Groups and individual artists participating include Ann Carlson, Universes,

Big Art Group (Caden Manson), Rude Mechanicals (Austin), Da Da Kamera

(Daniel McIvor, Canada), New York City Players (Richard Maxwell), and Diane

Szeinblum (Argentina).

Mentors would be expected to review writing portfolios, and working with

fellows on reviews they produce during the festival. Fellows will be

attending performances and writing reviews for group and individual

discussions with mentors. Time will also be made for mentors and fellows to

attend speakers and panels at the University of Texas symposium that is

accompanying the festival.

DCA will pay for travel and lodging expenses (up to $500 each) for up to two

DCA fellows and for up to two DCA mentors. Fellowship winners must agree to

write about the conference for the DCA quarterly newsletter.

Any DCA members intersted in serving as mentors should e-mail a statement of

interest to kcollins@app.com by Wed. Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. EST.

Fellowship applicants should be emerging dance writers with less than five

years of experience in dance writing. Applicants should submit a bio or

resume, as well as a statement

of not more than 50 words explaining why they would like to attend this

conference and what they hope to get from the experience. All applications

must be received by Wed. Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. EST.

Applications should be e-mailed to:

kcollins@app.com or sent by regular mail to:

Karyn D. Collins

c/o Asbury Park Press

3601 Rt. 66

Neptune, NJ 07754

All fellows and mentors will be selected by the DCA Board.

Thank you.
