YOUR WAY OPEN SEASON PROGRAM
Dancehouse's Your Way program offers visibility to dance and movement-based productions outside our curatorial program. YOUR WAY offers the opportunity to present work in a professional environment and in a context of limited financial risk. For a set fee, Dancehouse provides extensive logistical and technical support in order to allow the artists to focus on the creative aspects of their show. Dancehouse wishes to contribute in advancing contemporary dance practice by providing showcase opportunities whilst protecting artists from the financial strain of organising a season.
