SLAPmoves 2014

SLAP (Salacious Live Alternative Performance) are very excited to announce our 3rd event in the city of York. 

The SLAPmoves prize is all about emerging art from the next generation of pioneering talent. SLAP has invited recent graduates and final year students (of dance/theatre/film whose themes of focus are based upon ‘movement’) to submit proposals of new work. 

Throughout the evening you will have the chance to see our shortlisted artists and works, an eclectic mix of dance, live art, film and music. Showcasing not only local talent but international artists. The audience also has a say in who is deserving of the prize. 

The successful artist or company will then be offered a place in Yorkshire dance’s spring platform dedicated to the region’s most exciting emerging talent, taking place on May 2nd. The artist will also receive two days of studio space, a one to one meeting with a producer, artistic mentoring and technical support.

Rachel Gildea and Hannah McBrien - The Disco Disco Project
Alicia Wallace - Chronocyclegraphs - Wakefield
So - kool, Haptic & A.L.V - O(Negation) - South Africa
