Dissonance Dance Theatre's contemporary voice feeds on diversity. We look for choreographers who build works from a solid classical ballet core, and through a contemporary dance style. It is our view that choreographers who work with the company see their works as contributions to a new concert dance language that reflects the 21st Century.
We provide each guest choreographer with a quality recording of the staged work that includes an interview with the choreographer. At this time, Dissonance is not able to commission or offer monetary compensation for choreographic works rendered.
Interested choreographers should provide a 5-minute DVD reel demonstrating choreographic range, a headshot, resume, bio and an artistic narrative of the proposed choreographic work.
