Sadler’s Wells Summer University (2015 – 2018)

Neon’s Adrienne Hart has just been announced as one of the Sadler’s Wells Summer University artists 2015 – 2018! Sadler’s Wells will support 21 artists with a four-year dance development programme directed by one of the most respected choreographers working in Europe today, Jonathan Burrows, in collaboration with Eva Martinez, Artistic Programmer for Sadler’s Wells.

“Summer University takes the shape of a two-week intensive period every summer with the same group of artists. Exceptionally, this first year takes place in September. Devised to offer a longer-term approach to choreographic enquiry, the four-year programme is aimed specifically at dance artists who have been active in their field yet are at the earlier stages of their career as dance makers. The artists chosen are therefore all at a crucial stage in their development. Moreover, they have been selected on the strength of their distinctive approach to choreographic practice across a wide range of choreographic backgrounds” 

Guest speakers for the first year include Art Angel Director Michael Morris, Dramaturg and Performance Theorist Bojana Cvejic and Tate Modern Curator, Catherine Wood.

Summer University is supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation and is made possible thanks to funding through the Leverhulme Trust Arts Scholarship
