SLAP (Salacious Live Alternative Performance) are very excited to announce our second edition of SLAPmoves. 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 in May. The artist will also receive studio space, a one to one meeting with a producer, artistic mentoring and technical support.
Our shortlisted artists are:
Arnold & Whittle
Joshua Hubbard & Anton Hinchliffe
Headlining the evening will be last years winners The Disco Disco Project!
We are very happy to announce that the winner of SLAPmoves is Dan Craddock with Rhythm is a Daniel!
