Transitions Dance Company was founded by Bonnie Bird (1914-1995), and is the UKs leading graduate dance company set up to bridge the gap between education and professional training.
Each year the company of 10-12 dancers work with 3 choreographers to create 3 new, fresh and unique pieces of dance (to be toured as part of the Transitions repertory) and 1 research artist (to develop ideas experimentally, using and collaborating with the dancers).
Each artist works with the company for 3-5 weeks and are sourced from all over the world; home-grown and international, established and emerging. This allows the company to gain an insight in to the creative process of each artist. Laban aims to find artists, who show an intelligence, an understanding of their craft, a commitment to experimentation and have strong conceptual ideas.
We are currently looking for artists from all genres (film artists, fine artists, photographers, designers, sculptors) to work with the company on a 3-5 week research project during the academic year 2009/2010.
Anyone applying should have at least 3 years previous experience
