The Bonnies are the portfolio of awards that the Bonnie Bird Choreography Fund offers. The Fund aims to recognise the work of artists and individuals in the choreographic arena from a very early point in their careers right through to the more mature years of their work. Our awards are constantly under review by the very active board and will shift and change in response to the needs of the industry.
Our current awards are:
- The Marion North Mentoring Awards, which support artists at an early point in their career who could benefit from having a more structured dialogue with a maker who has been creating over a longer period of time or from a very different perspective
- The New Choreography Award which offers £10,000 for choreographic research around an artist's practice, with support from external expertise of their choice
- The Lifetime Contribution to Choreography Award which celebrates and acknowledges those who have made exceptional lifetime contributions to the specific development of choreography in the UK
- The Bonnie Bird Awards which are flexible awards offered in response to ideas that come to our attention, designed to be responsive and one-off.
