Phoenix Dance Theatre is hosting its second Choreographers and Composers Lab between Tuesday 2 July Saturday 13 July 2019 at its studios in Leeds, thanks to funding from the Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Leeds Dance Partnership. The two-week intensive led by choreographer and Artistic Director Sharon Watson provides the opportunity for the next generation of artists to work collaboratively, innovate, and develop new ways of working in music and dance.

The Choreographers and Composers Lab will bring together four choreographers and four composers at a pivotal point in their careers, to participate in an immersive two-week programme. The participating artists will work with 12 professional dancers and four musicians, who will bring their artistic explorations to life, as well as have guest lectures and workshops with industry professionals while being mentored by Watson and a Musical Director that is yet to be announced. The first CC Lab Musical Director was internationally recognised composer, Kenneth Hesketh.

Participants will receive a bursary for their time on the two-week intensive.
