SOUP is a networking opportunity which brings together an eclectic mix of local dance professionals to meet, have conversations around projects and pitch for investment for their new artistic and entrepreneurial ideas. Each artist will be presenting their idea/project in a 3 minute pitch, verbally, with visual aids, by demonstration or a combination of all three. Financial investment will be awarded to a number of artists/companies by a democratic audience and a panel of dance professionals.

Dance City’s SOUP event is an ideal opportunity to network with peer makers, North East venues and funders, as well as discover new ideas and initiatives from across the region. Tickets are available to purchase here and included soup and a drink.
