Are you an east London based dance artist, choreographer, fashion designer, stylist or costume maker interested in collaborating on a dance and fashion performance, to be staged at Shoreditch Town Hall on 12, 13, 14 April, 2018.

East London Dance is offering a unique platform for you to present your work as part of Identity, a performance event that will celebrate east London’s eclectic dance and fashion culture directed by maverick choreographer and fashion line creator Tony Adigun (Avant Garde Dance Company & TRAMPHAÜS LDN)

Known for bringing together inventive and unusual collaborations, Tony Adigun will pair artists across the two disciplines, guiding the ‘collabo’ for a bespoke presentation at Identity.

We are looking for bold, unconventional fashion and dance work that makes statements about individual or collective identity whilst reflecting an east London aesthetic. Applicants should have a flexible approach to their work and be willing to collaborate across art forms under the creative guidance of Tony Adigun.

The outcome of this ‘collabo’ will be performed in a mixed bill of dance and fashion performances as part of an unmissable event that blurs the lines between fashion catwalk, dance show and club night.

Find out more about Identity here.


  • Dance artists should have pre-existing solo or duet pieces between 5-15 minutes.
  • Fashion designers/makers/stylists should have an existing collection that they would be willing to use for this performance.
  • All participants and dancers must be 18 or over.
