Ausdance ACT is pleased to be able to sponsor one bursary place for a dance artist based in the Canberra region for The Centre of Applied Dramaturgy - CoAD online, intensive, professional development course, ‘Doing Dramaturgy - Australasia’, The bursary will cover course costs for the selected participant, who will be chosen in a competitive process.

With limited places available for mid-career choreographers and developing or established dramaturgs, this course draws on Lou Cope’s extensive career, working as a dramaturg with world class choreographers and theatre makers. Applications close Monday 6 March 2023.
