Submissions for Pitchbook

Submit by: Sat, Apr 1
Fee: $25

Pitchbook is American Dance Abroad’s biannual publication of new works by U.S. choreographers. The third volume of Pitchbook will feature 10 dance projects that have premiered since Jul 1, 2016 or will premiere before Jun 30, 2018. Applications will be accepted from Jan 15 through Apr 1, 2017.

“Pitching” new work to potential producers and presenters is a great way to attract international partners and funding. Face-to-face pitching is a challenge for American choreographers since it requires travel and access to professional gatherings.

Pitchbook publicizes new projects without the necessity or expense of traveling. It is available through print and digital formats, and will be distributed by American Dance Abroad to international programmers at marketplaces and professional gatherings such as Aerowaves Spring Forward (Aarhus, Denmark), Performing Arts Market Seoul (Seoul, South Korea), and China Shanghai International Arts Festival Performing Arts Fair (Shanghai, China).
