Digital Tattoo Tour 2017_Katie Dale-Everett Dance

Katie Dale-Everett Dance Company is going on it's first tour in 2017! We are taking 3 works to 9 venues across the South East & West!

We did it!

On 22nd Dec 2016 we successfully raised £612 of £550 target with 45 supporters in 21 days

New stretch target

With this extra money in the budget we will be able to:

Contribute payment to the management of this project which is being carried out 90% in-kind.

Contribute funds to outcomes of a developing relationship with The Point who are in discussions about a potential residency & outreach programme in association with the tour during the project. This will mean we may not have to look for other fundraising routes later in the project for this extra activity. THANK YOU for giving generously.

KATIE DALE-EVERETT DANCE COMPANY create work and outreach opportunities that encourage people of all generations to: 

  1. Think about the impact of our increasingly digitalised society on their perceptions, interaction, control, identity and Right to be Forgotten. 
  2. Engage with cross-genre dance works by watching work and participating in outreach opportunities. 
  3. Learn new skills in professional dance practice and to develop a better understanding of the realities of being an artist. 
  4. Collaborate on projects that involve dance. 
  5. Witness dance performance in areas that are not toured to as often. 
  In 2015/6 I:
  1. Received Arts Council England funding to further develop my work as a cross-genre digital dance artist.
  2. Became supported by the South East Dance Emerging Artist Programme. 
  3. Received a Random Act Ignition Network Commission to create Digital Tattoo: Artefact 1, a random act that was acquired by Channel Four. 
  4. Became a Brighton Dance Network Featured Artist and made audio interactive work Conversations About the Digital. 
  5. Delivered a range of ourtreach work to digital immigrants (those bon before the wide spread boom of technolgy) and Digital Native (born after).
I have carried out a short research and development stage for all 3 of these works and shared them with the public at an initial sharing, all being succsessfully recieved. 

In 2017 I will be redeveloping these works over a longer period, offering multiple opportunities for engagement along the way. The company will then be carrying out a small scale tour of the new innovative programme taking 3 works to 9 urban and rural locations across the South East and South West of England from April-October. Tour locations: Lewes, Portslade, Brighton, Oxford, Cornwall, Chichester, Medway, Swale and the Isle of Sheppey. 


Your money will be helping to:
  1. Pay artists for their work, 
  2. Cover the cost of accommodation, costumes and travel,
  3. Enable more people to participate and engage in dance activities reaching over 400 participants and 1000 audiences throughout this project.

Creating this work is expensive. To give you an idea:

  1. The artist fee for 1 dancer for touring to 9 venues will cost £1100.
  2. Accommodation costs for activiites happening over 40 miles from the Seaford will cost £1049. 

£11, 495 of in-kind support,
£4,870 in confirmed funds, 
Submitted a Grant for the Arts (due to find out the outcome in January 2017),
but still need £550 to make the project happen! 
The project is supported by a number of touring partners that cannot be named at this stage as well as: 
South East Dance, The Circle Studios, Screen South, Otherplace Productions, Brighton Dance Network and Blast Theory.

I am particularly excited by the way her recent show 'Digital Tattoo' spoke to the 14-24 year age group. In my experience, it isn't often the case that this group of young people get specifically addressed by such sophisticated and accomplished choreography. Her fine intuitive choreographic eye makes her an artist to watch out for in the months and years to come.”

“A must see for anyone who has any sort of web presence or social medial profile.”
