SHAPE IT is a project which aims to broaden the audience for contemporary dance in Europe. It does this by inviting early career dance makers in Europe to consider how an existing performance can be presented to an audience of young people. Through development labs, residencies and touring, it will support artists to reimagine the audience for their work. Together, through partnerships, conversations and audiences, it seeks to model a new approach to developing dance for young people.

Shape It is delivered by a partnership of The Place (UK), Annantalo (Finland), CSC (Italy) and Tanec Praha (Czech Republic).
With the support of the Creative Europe programme of the European Union
