In the Dancelab, a collaboration with VIA ZUID, SALLY fuses research, public engagement, and presentation. The Dancelab is a workspace where choreographers and the public come together to share ideas and collaborate on a creative process. SALLY’s Dancelab’s consist of:
• Research, in which time and space is created for the choreographers to dive into a research question, refine their signature and sharpen their focus on a young audience.
• The public as co-creator, in which a young audience is invited to contribute to the research process.
• Presentation, in which the right context and the right platform are sought for the choreographer and their work.
Over the years, SALLY has worked step by step on the development of a sustainable network of performance venues, schools, and festivals in which young choreographers connect with new and young audiences.
