CONTINUOUS is a four-year partnership between BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art (Gateshead) and Siobhan Davies Dance which seeks to advance the creation, presentation and development of audiences for experimental independent contemporary dance within visual arts contexts.
This is the first collaboration of its kind in the UK. Our partnership developed in recognition of the need to further grow the dialogue between contemporary dance and visual arts.
CONTINUOUS brings together expertise from both organisations, as leaders in dance and visual arts, to facilitate the production of new live choreographic works for galleries, support and share publically critical dialogue at the intersection of dance and visual art and cultivate new audiences for dance in gallery spaces. We will also promote professional development and shared learning for artists and across organisations and art-forms throughout the programme.
For 2018/19 artists Zinzi Minott and Lucy Suggate were chosen following an open call for two commission opportunities to create a new work which will premiere at BALTIC in autumn 2019. READ the 2018/19 artists announcement here.
