Pavilion Dance South West is launching a major dance project that aims to fundamentally change dance touring and showcasing in the UK.
Surf the Wave will be hosted between 2017 and 2020 by Pavilion Dance South West (PDSW), with a national showcase in May 2019 in Bournemouth and Poole. 85% of Surf the Wave costs are supported by Arts Council England’s Ambition for Excellence fund, the Jerwood Foundation and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. Surf the Wave starts with an eighteen month programme of talent development and artist support involving artists, producers and promoters (including those new to dance) around the country. Then there is the Showcase itself. After the Showcase, there will be a year’s programme of touring and development support.
The Showcase Strategy Director will work with the National Showcasing Strategy Working Group to write and launch a long-term national strategy that will be the legacy from Surf The Wave.
