Dancehouse invites Australian independent dance artists to propose projects for Dancehouse’s 2025 seasons (and beyond)

Dancehouse 2025 Seasons 

Dancehouse seasons are clusters of presentations (productions, exhibitions, talks and events) that invite audiences to experience and appreciate dance.

Dancehouse seasons are a deliberate mix of artistic voices, styles, genres and works: from new works to remounts; projects by emerging and established artists; from pure movement to expanded choreographies; from projects about dance to projects that involve audiences dancing; theatrical black box productions to white box installations; improvisation nights to all style battles. All dance is welcome.

Dancehouse has produced and presented 2-4 seasons of work annually since 2022 with a focus on Australian independent artists’ works. Each season consists of four to eight curated productions or events ranging in genre, scale and style. These seasons continue in 2025 and beyond and we welcome project ideas by Australian independent dance artists for consideration.

We’ve included more information about how our seasons come together, and what Dancehouse offers below. 

This invitation is for live-performance projects at their final stage of development and ready for a professional presentation outcome to an audience or community. 

Please find information on other opportunities at Dancehouse (such as works in development, Melbourne Fringe and screendance) at the end of this document.

Dancehouse is accepting proposals for 2025 seasons up to 11:59pm, Wednesday 15 May 2024.

Submit a Project Idea

Please send your project to Dancehouse using the ‘Submit’ button on this page.

Sending a project idea is simple: we ask for the lead artists’ contact details and for a single attachment of your proposal as either: a 2-page document (Word or PDF Only); OR a 5-minute downloadable video (Vimeo, YouTube or WeTransfer only). 

Dancehouse will confirm receipt of all projects by COB Friday 17 May 2024.
