Aerowaves Springback 2019: Open call for dance writers (France)


Springback Academy at Spring Forward, Val-de-Marne, near Paris (France) Friday 5, Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 April 2019

Springback Academy is project designed to stimulate dialogue about dance and performance whilst striving to improve and promote written criticism online

After Umeå, Barcelona, Pilsen, Aarhus and Sofia, Springback Academy will once again offer aspiring dance writers the chance to be mentored in the fundamentals of quality dance criticism in the action-packed environment of Spring Forward, Aerowaves annual festival which will be hosted by La Briqueterie CDNC du Val-de-Marne near Paris from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 April.

PLUS – Earlier this year Springback Magazine was launched. The publication’s contributors are drawn exclusively from writers who have participated in the Springback Academy programme and who are part of the ever-growing community of Springback Academy ‘graduate’ writers.

If selected for the project, Aerowaves will provide mentorship, accommodation, hospitality, a pass to the festival and the opportunity to participate in future Springback activities and, possibly, to be commissioned to contribute to Springback Magazine. However, participants will be required to organise and fund their own return travel to Paris.

Deadline: 7 January 2019
