Every year ISH invites three new makers to develop an existing idea for a choreography into a short fifteen-minute performance. The choreographers will have the opportunity to rehearse for one week at Podium Lely and then edit and present the performance at the theater.
Apply for ISH Open Nights
ISH Open Nights offers a new generation of dance makers space to show their work in a professional setting. Three creators will each be given a week to work out an existing idea into a 15-20 minute choreography in ISH's studio in Podium Lely, then spend a day editing with sound and lighting and present their work in a joint program in the theater. For the realization of the three projects a budget of 12,500 euros per project is available to pay the implementation costs including personnel. In addition, ISH provides substantive and organizational support to realize the project.
