Shortlisting Panel 21st January 2014
In December 2013, Yorkshire Dance invited proposals from artists interested in contemporary choreography and practice in the search for six artistic ideas, for a short 10-20 minute work.
On Tuesday 21st January 2014, a panel of judges from Yorkshire Dance, Breakfast Creative and the University of Leeds, with Paul Russ (Director of Dance4) and Theresa Beattie (dance consultant, and previously Director of Artist Development at The Place) reviewed all applications and shortlisted to the final six.
The panel were encouraged by the standard and diversity of proposals received in response to the call and the successful artists to face the public vote were notified that same week. These are Robert Clark, Jennifer Essex, Ben Duke, Sadhana Dance, Hagit Yakira and Robbie Synge. More information about them, and their proposed new works, are here: archive.respondto.org/the-artists.
