WHAT: CHOP SHOP: Bodies of Work, a contemporary dance festival
WHEN: February 15 & 16, 2020
WHERE: Meydenbauer Center Theatre, Bellevue, WA, USA

CHOP SHOP: Bodies of Work, a contemporary dance festival, is seeking U.S. or Canada-based dance companies and individual choreographers with contemporary dance work to be presented at the 2020 festival (February 15 & 16, 2020) at Meydenbauer Center Theatre in Bellevue, WA, alongside master classes and a free community engagement program. Approximately eight individual artists and/or dance companies will be selected and their work will be presented in both festival performances (Saturday evening at 7.30pm and Sunday at 3pm). In addition to participating in festival performances, artists have the opportunity to offer a master class for intermediate/advanced level dancers, lead free and open to all community dance classes and lectures, participate in a pre-show lecture/demonstration on the art of choreography, engage directly with audiences through post-show Q&A sessions, and network with fellow artists.

ELIGIBILITY
This call is open to all dance companies and individual choreographers working in contemporary dance and based in the U.S. or Canada. Works presented at CHOP SHOP must be 10 minutes or less in length. Works in progress are accepted and considered, but your video work sample should show at least 75% of the completed work. Works still in conceptual form will not be considered.

FEES
Each dance company or individual choreographer will receive a performance honorarium: $800 for works with one performer and $1,000 for works with two or more performers. An additional modest travel stipend of $200 will be provided for dance companies or individual choreographers based outside a 50-mile radius of Bellevue, WA.

Dance companies or individual choreographers offering master classes and/or community engagement classes receive an additional teaching stipend of $70 per hour taught.
