Call for Dance Performances

The first Cape Town International Dance Festival will take place in Cape Town from November 27 through to December 4, 2015.

Artists interested in performing are invited to apply before 10 July, 2015.

The Cape Town International Dance Festival will present work that includes local, African and other international artists. The festival aims to establish an enriching dialogue between different forms of dance as a performed art. An underlying theme of the festival will look at migration as a fundamental aspect in dance, both historically and currently. Film projections and public talks with festival performers will be facilitated between performances.

Interested artists and dance companies should have a minimum of three years’ professional experience in dance as a performing art. The application should also include a proposal for dance pieces between 20 and 50 minutes in total duration, and candidates will be selected based on artistic merit.
