Emma Gladstone is Dance Umbrella’s Artistic Director and she is responsible for the festival’s programming.
Whilst there is no application process to appear in our festival, Dance Umbrella welcomes artists to send through proposals for consideration. Companies perform in the festival by invitation and it is rare that an invitation is extended until we have seen the work live, met the choreographer and begun to build a relationship.
We recommend sending through a brief introduction to your work and include a Vimeo/YouTube link where possible. If we think your material looks suitable for the festival, we will contact you for further information and we will try to come and see it live somewhere.
We will review your work as quickly as possible and we will try our hardest always to get back as soon as possible & within one month.
