NEW & NOTABLE

ENGLISH NEW & NOTABLE New & Notable/Novo e Netável PORTUGUESE “New&Notable enabled me for the first time to be artistically challenged and supported as an artist” Lee Griffiths
(2014 participant and Artistic Director of The Company)
New&Notable was created in 2014, responding to the need to provide a targeted programme to identify and nurture the next generation of hip-hop dance theatre artists who have not yet presented work in a professional arena, but who show the promise and desire to develop themselves as artists. The aim is to increase the number of dance artists from hip-hop theatre backgrounds accessing, informing and leading the UK dance sector.

New&Notable is not primarily about providing performance opportunities, although this can form a part of the project.

There are many programmes to support early career artists, but them emphasis is always on the end creative product and there is no time for Artists to take risks in the studio with no performance pressure attached. New & Notable offers the space and structure to broaden the participant’s knowledge of dance practice, whilst experiencing the breadth of dance styles and the pedagogical possibilities involved and to investigate their own unique style.
The programme also provides a practical insight into the administrative aspects of the dance sector through sessions in securing funding, networking and self management.

The main components unique to New&Notable are:
• A personal mentor currently working within the sector to help springboard creativity.
• A ticket allowance to see work
• Application is by video only, therefore opening up the opportunity to a wider spectrum of dance artists
• An honorarium for each artist

O programa visa dar uma visão sobre diferentes métodos de desenvolvimento do trabalho de hip-hop para o teatro e é dirigido não só aos artistas que já apresentaram trabalhos antes, mas também aos artistas que mostram o desejo de se desenvolverem como criadores de hip-hop, com uma mente aberta e vontade de serem desafiados fora das suas zonas de conforto, enquanto constroem uma forte rede de artistas.

O programa irá oferecer aos artistas um período de concentração para a pesquisa, desenvolvimento, intercâmbio e desafio sem quaisquer encargos financeiros, dentro de um ambiente que incentiva o crescimento criativo.

Durante as duas semanas, os artistas irão explorar:
- Relação entre música e movimento
- Encenação e teatro
- Transmitir um conceito
- Pesquisar estilos de movimento e encontrar significado
- Relacionar-se e desenvolver novos contatos com artistas do Brasil e convidados do Reino Unido.
- Olhando para o hip-hop dentro de um contexto mais amplo no Brasil
- Criação de uma nova peça, que culminará numa performance
