SITU-8:Hotel Commissions – Composer Call Out

Tura in partnership with STRUT Dance, and LINK Dance Company, is pleased to announce that SITU-8 will return in 2021 for another season of site specific short and sharp dance works.

Curated by Geordie Crawley and Serena Chalker, eight artists – four choreographers and four composers – will collaborate to produce four amazing new dance and sound works to be presented at the Alex Hotel, in the thriving heart of Northbridge.

EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

Tura is seeking expressions of interest from composers and sound designers to take part in this hotel-wide activation of the Alex Hotel in August 2021. We are looking for artists interested in site-responsive compositional practice and presentation outside of traditional performance spaces. This year audiences will experience the work through stereo headphones given the public nature of the Alex Hotel.

Composers who have been included in successful choreographer application will be matched with this choreographer if successful. If this is not the case, composers will be matched with choreographers at the discretion of the selection panel. Due to the size of the venue, composers will create a pre recorded composition.
