Open Call for Season Collaborators


Are you a designer who is looking for a new project to embark upon? 

Are you a visual artist and want to make some new work with some really cool, fun people?  We'd love to hear from you! 

Birds on a Wire Dance Theatre invites artists/designers to collaborate with the company as we continue our 2015-2016 season. We are particularly interested in working with lighting, costume and scenic designers (but also designers and artists of any medium!) who are proactive and invested and both interesting and interested.  

You might be "emerging" or "up-and-coming" and just beginning to find your aesthetic voice or you might be super experienced and looking to work with some new faces and personalities.  Either way, if you're looking to make new dance theatre works that are visually arresting, conceptually rich, and/or sensually stimulating and you have the skills or raw talent (or both) to do it, we want to talk to you. Basically, we're looking for more players to jump into the muck of our small, interdisciplinary creative community and dig around in the mud. 


BOAW has projects in various stages of development:

  1. HATCH (a presenting series focused on developing the skills and experience of emerging choreographers)

  2. An Ode to Something (a dance film exploring proximity, perspective, and transience with live musicians)

  3. An evening length piece to be premiered in 2016 (inspired by an Italian prog rock album)


Express your interest by any of the following:

  • Sending work samples

  • Sending an artist statement or any writing you have about how you like to work or what kind of work you like to make

  • Scheduling a coffee date

  • Saying hi


We will return the favor with our own work samples and/or writing about how we like to work and what kind of work we like to make.
