Ignition Dance Festival 2017 - Choreographers platform 

Wednesday 22 February 

Now in its fourth year, Ignition Dance Festival returns in June 2017 as an expanded dance festival for the whole of west London, with professional choreographic and community dance showcases scheduled to take place at the Rose Theatre, Kingston and the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith. Commissioned by the Royal Borough of Kingston and produced by DanceWest, this year’s festival is supported by Arts Council England, Kingston University and new partners, Hammersmith and Fulham Council and HammersmithLondon.

The festival is able to offer seven commissions, the opportunity to work across two venues and a supportive professional development package ensuring choreographers are supported throughout their creative journey. We are seeking applications from mid-career artists to create new works across seven scaled commissions.
