Why Dance Matters Now…

Delving into Dance, in partnership with Critical Path, invite those engaged in dance (in whatever capacity) to share thoughts as to why dance matters now…

We are currently accepting expressions of interest from Australian based artists and writers, and will select 5 pieces of text for publication. We are particularly interested in profiling different perspectives that help to inform conversations about dance while opening the practice of dance up to new audiences.

Submissions close Friday the 8th of November 2019.  This is a funded opportunity.

We are open to all written forms which may include poetry, essays and other reflections.

  • We invite expressions of interest from people new to writing,

  • We encourage ideas that play with form and style,

  • Submissions can have a choice of being 300 OR 700 words in length, 

  • We welcome ideas that build upon the podcast episodes or other previous conversations had on Delving into Dance,

  • We are not looking for dance criticism.

Supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
