The JCRP II Contributors have identified some research ideas as relevant for the sector for the development of choreography.  These are suggestions only – we actively welcome and encourage new research ideas that explore other areas.

  • Formal concerns such as movement vocabulary development, new choreographic languages, composition
  • Narrative experiments & storytelling forms
  • Dramaturgy and structure
  • Modes of engagement with audiences: participation and accessibility, interaction with active audiences
  • Amateur and community practice used in professional frames
  • New theatrical formats
  • Forms of sociability & community building
  • Politics / Society / Activism: work which explores urgent issues of society and agency
  • Interest / collaboration with another discipline
  • Performance and the role of dancers / performers
  • Curation and the role of the choreographer

Déda is proud to join a diverse group of organisations, along with Jerwood Charitable Foundation, who have committed their resources to create the JCRP II investment fund.  Some Contributors will additionally provide in-kind support such as access to studio space, technical facilities and other resources. Applications are open NOW!

The Jerwood Choreographic Research Project (JCRP) is an innovative investment model designed to broaden and challenge the understanding of choreography by enabling artists and creatives to think, dream and experiment freely.
