Event Description


Choreographers, Dance Companies, and Dance Designers 

Jeromy Hopgood, the author of the forthcoming text Dance Production: Design & Technology, is looking for high-quality photos to be used in publication and/or on the companion website. Publisher: Focal Press. Publication Date: October 2015. 

Project Description:

While staging a dance production in theory may not seem too different from staging a play or musical, in reality a dance production has many unique challenges unto itself.  Dance Production: Design & Technology introduces readers to the process of planning, designing, and executing the technical aspects of a dance production. The book serves as an introductory approach, ideal for dance production courses taught across the world. The book covers pre-production, technical rehearsals, performance spaces, stage management, and devised productions, in addition to lighting, sound, costumes, scenery & props, projections, and special effects for dance. The goal is to bridge the gap between theatrical and dance design by creating a common vocabulary that will ensure productive communication across the different fields.

Content Type:

The author is requesting high-quality, dynamic and colorful images representative of the world of dance design & technology. Specific imagery might include:

  • Pre-production / Rehearsal process
  • Lighting Design (Show photos, renderings, paperwork, cheat sheets, etc.)
  • Sound Design (Show photos, setup, paperwork, working with musicians, equipment, etc.)
  • Costume Design (Show photos, sketches, renderings, process photos, etc.)
  • Scenery and/or Props (Show photos, renderings, models, prop work, flooring, etc.)
  • Projection / Media Design (Show photos, visualization, equipment, etc.)
  • Stage Management
  • Found space performances
  • Non-traditional dance performances
  • Dance performances utilizing live musicians onstage
  • International dance
