Call for Choreographers for J.U.i.C.E. Hip Hop Dance Festival

J.U.i.C.E. Hip Hop Dance Festival @ The Ford Amphitheatre

Deadline for submission is June 1st, 2008

The J.U.i.C.E. Hip Hop Dance Festival (JHHDF) is an annual showcase of
cutting-edge street dance choreography and hip hop culture produced by
Antics Performance and J.U.i.C.E. at the outdoor, 1241-seat Ford
Amphitheatre. It will take place on Sat. Oct. 4th, 2008.

JHHDF unites the rhythmic virtuosity and extreme physicality of street
dance to "expand [hip hop's] creative horizons" (Lewis Segal, L.A.
Times). Artistic Directors Amy "Catfox" Campion and Jacob "Kujo"
Lyons bring LA's freshest street dance choreographers to the stage to
celebrate and to reinvent hip hop culture.

JHHDF is looking for street dance-based choreography that captures the
essence of the hip hop and pushes the boundaries of creativity. We
highly encourage the submission of multi-media performances that
overlap street dance with live music, visual art, poetry, theatre,
and/or film. Proposals should address how the artist plans to
creatively take advantage of the particular features of the unique,
bi-level, outdoor Ford Amphitheatre stage. Submissions for short Hip
Hop films are also welcome. Pieces should be between 3-10 minutes long.

For a map of the Ford Amphitheatre stage go to: Click on the "Rent" menu, select "outdoor",

All performers must be available for dress and tech rehearsals during
the week prior to the show (Sept 29th- Oct 3rd schedule tba). Music
for each piece, as well as backdrop projected artwork and/or completed
films must be submitted to Antics Performance one month before the
show. Performers must have the rights to the music and images they
provide. Performers must also provide bios and photos for JHHDF
marketing materials.

Each selected performing group will receive a stipend of no less that
$500 to be determined based on the number of performers, particular
needs of the piece, and festival budget. Performing groups will be
listed in the press release, radio announcements, and J.U.i.C.E. website.
