Every year ISH invites three new makers to develop an idea for a choreography into a short fifteen-minute performance. Each choreographer will have the opportunity to rehearse for one week with three dancers at Podium Lely. Before the viewing, choreographers will have a full day to refine the work together with the light, sound, and dancers. Finally, the three choreographies will be presented together in the small studio of the Meervaart theatre.
Staff members are paid professional rates and there is a small budget available for décor, music, and costumes. The company’s lighting and sound technicians will be available to work with each choreographer.
All are welcome to submit a proposal! ISH will make the selection.
In 2021, Lucinda Wessels, Dietrich Pott, and Nedda Sou presented three short works during ISH Open Night. The next Open Night will take place towards the end of 2023. Registrations open in February and choreographers are invited to present their conceptual plans using the form provided on this webpage. The announcement will be displayed in our newsletter and on social media.
