The Fund supports the research and development of new choreography, aiming to recognise and address what choreography is today and what choreographers' needs are in today's complex and ever-changing local and international landscape.
2015 marked the 30th anniversary of the Fund and in that time it has supported over 130 dance artists and dance writers with several awards of different types given each year.
The Fund's portfolio of awards are The Bonnies and include The Marion North Mentoring Awards, The Bonnie Bird New Choreography Award and the Bonnie Bird Lifetime Contribution to Choreography Award.
We are now inviting nominations for the Bonnie Bird Lifetime Contribution to Choreography Award (deadline 25th Sep) and applications to the Bonnie Bird New Choreography Award (deadline 27th Oct). Please visit their webpages for full details.
