The Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance Invites Applications for HOTHOUSE 2016...providing work space for Los Angeles choreographers in the creation of new work.
UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance is pleased to announce the tenth annual Hothouse Program scheduled for August 22-Sept 9, 2016. The “Hothouse” concept was developed by UCLA faculty member Victoria Marks to support the creation of new work by Los Angeles choreographers and to encourage interactive exchange during the creative process.
Hothouse provides a residency for the creation of new work for local choreographers at UCLA's Glorya Kaufman Hall. Each choreographer/performance artist will be invited to use studio space free of charge for 4 hours/day, 5 days/week for three weeks (August 22 to September 9, 2016). In exchange for the Hothouse residency, artists are asked to share their work through informal presentations on the final day of the residency. In addition, artists may share some part of their work/creative process with WACD students and faculty during the subsequent months of the academic year, 2016-2017.
Who: Los Angeles-based choreographers, body-based performance artists are invited to apply.
When: The residency period is August 22 – September 9, Monday-Friday for three weeks.
EXCEPTION: we will be closed Monday, September 5, for Labor Day
Costs: The Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance is pleased to offer rehearsal space free of charge and one parking space in the UCLA parking lot per day/per group. (Additional parking in UCLA lots costs $12/car for a full day.)
Interaction: Hothouse is designed to give LA artists the necessary space for the creation of new work. In addition, it is an opportunity to build artistic community. We require that all participants join us for a pot-luck lunch on each Friday between 12 and 1 pm, and attend a full day of showings scheduled for Friday, September 9th.
Future credit: We ask that for all performances of the work created at UCLA, the following credit be given: "The development of (name of work) was supported in part by the UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance Hothouse Program."
