As always, the stage will continue to work alongside local dance companies, community groups, independent artists and cultural organizations as a platform for showcasing the diverse range of talent Bristol has to offer.

The Role

We are looking for a freelance dance facilitator/choreographer to deliver cocreated interactive dance workshops in the lead up to the Harbour Festival. This will result in a dance developed alongside participants and showcased as a piece of new work on Saturday 20th July, harnessing, celebrating and inspired by the skills of the community involved in its creation.

We invite applications from dance practitioners with experience in facilitation, choreography and working within communities/with community groups.
