What's Included

Doug Varone and his Company will once again offer DEVICES: Choreographic Intensive & Mentorship, a program designed for emerging choreographers. A unique program celebrating its third year, the entire scope of the mentorship is divided into three distinct parts over the course of several months. DEVICES kicks off with a week-long intensive retreat at Hunter College in New York City. Doug will share ideas about craft, design and composition through finely honed creative games and devices in which an abundance of material is built quickly then carefully shaped and molded. Participants will create studies using dancers selected by Doug and the Company. Company members will serve as guides and moderators through the week. Over the following months, Doug will continue to mentor each participant one on one as they independently create a new work on their own dancers. The full slate of those new dances will be presented in New York City in August 2016. Please note that DEVICES is intended for emerging choreographers who have already begun making work in the field. Current MFA students will only be considered if they have already established themselves as professionals outside of their master’s program. Undergraduate students will not be considered.
