OPEN CALL 2018



Are you an independent dance artist based in Singapore, longing to create a new work? Or a dance artist or company with an existing work that needs more visibility? Or perhaps, you have a work-in-progress that you are currently working on, and you’d love to share it so that you can gain some informative feedback before developing it further?

The M1 CONTACT Contemporary Dance Festival 2018 is now accepting proposals!

Each year, we invite contemporary dance artists from Singapore, Southeast Asia, East Asia and abroad to submit applications for an opportunity to be programmed in our various Festival platforms.

We are thrilled to announce that this year, our OPEN CALL is not just for one, or two, but THREE different platforms in 2018’s Festival, which will take place from 15 June to 4 August 2018!
