Friday Firsts
Bish Bash Bosh
Friday 6 October 2017
Yorkshire Dance, Leeds

Bish Bash Bosh is our annual Friday Firsts event for Light Night Leeds.

It’s a highlight in our annual calendar, as we curate work to happen throughout the whole of the Yorkshire Dance building, hosting a variety of exciting and interesting performances and installations. We can expect a full capacity audience and a real buzz surrounding the night.

We are looking to programme a really eclectic evening of high quality and quirky dance, live art, theatre, spoken-word, cabaret, music and film. There is scope for experimentation, installations, durational pieces, multimedia work, cross-collaboration, first time performances, work-in-progress or finished articles.

We invite artists/choreographers to submit proposals for pieces that are:

• 12 minutes max in duration
• Technically simple and adaptable to quick turnarounds
• Self-supporting in terms of props/set/equipment and technology beyond the provision of Yorkshire Dance

Yorkshire Dance cannot pay fees or expenses.
Please note this evening is free to the general public so there is no box office income

To apply

All applicants must complete and return an expression of interest to mariapopova@yorkshiredance.com.

Selection process

All proposals will be considered by Yorkshire Dance. Shortlisting of work will be on the basis of the strength of the artistic idea, the suitability for this particular scratch night event and for technical and logistical feasibility. You will be informed if they have been successful or not by the week of the 28 August 2017.
