THRILLED TO RECEIVE GRANT FOR DANCE TOURING FROM NEFA'S NATIONAL DANCE PROJECT

Kate Weare Company was just awarded a dance touring grant from the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) through the National Dance Project (NDP). The grant will support artist, production and travel fees associated with touring Kate Weare's newest work, Unstruck, June 1, 2015 through November 30, 2016. The work is set to premiere at BAM in February 2015 during the Company's 10th anniversary season.

Six other contemporary dance companies - Chris Schlichting (Minneapolis, MN); Dada Masilo (Johannesburg, South Africa); Limón Dance Company (New York, NY); Okwui Okpokwasili (Brooklyn, NY); Sankai Juku (Tokyo, Japan); and Social Tango (Buenos Aires, Argentina) - received NDP Touring Awards this year. Each artist is granted up to $35,000 to support U.S. tours of their awarded projects. All seven dance companies were selected from a highly competitive pool of 67 applicants worldwide.

In January, NEFA and NDP will release a publication all seven Touring Award projects with tour coordinator information for presenters. Then, organizations interested in presenting any of these projects can contact tour coordinators to be considered for funding through NDP's Presentation Grants.
