Akademi Choreography Commissions


Earlier this year we launched our choreography commissions, an initiative created to continue the professional development of innovative South Asian choreographers.

We are delighted to announce that the following five artists have been successful in receiving the commissions for 2017:

  • Seeta Patel (awarded £5000 to present a group choreography)
  • Manuela Benini, Parbati Chaudhury, Raheem Mir and Shivaangee Agrawal (awarded £2000 to present a solo         choreography)

Congratulations!!  We are so excited to see what the next cohort of choreographic talent can produce.  Let’s get in the studio and start creating!

Since 2010, 53 artists have been through our formal artist development programmes, to find out more visit the artist development section of our website.

Akademi in partnership with Gem Arts, Curve, Sampad, Kadam, CICD, South East Dance, Yorkshire Dance, Dance Umbrella, Southbank Centre and The Place.  Funded by Arts Council England and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.
