Hannah Drover – Kittiwake RBC Emerging Choreographer in Residence
July 10, 2021 – Announcement
Through a generous gift from The RBC Foundation, Kittiwake has established the RBC Emerging Choreographer program. The RBC Emerging Artists Project is a multi-year funding commitment dedicated to supporting the careers and development of emerging artists, through mentoring programs, education, and providing access and exposure to new audiences. We are very happy to announce that Hannah Drover will be the inaugural Emerging Choreographer in Residence for Kittiwake Dance Theatre. Over the next ten months, Hannah will engage in mentoring with at least four established choreographers – some living here and some coming from the mainland. She will create a new dance piece in this time, which will be set to music that is being learned by the School of Music at Memorial University of Newfoundland. The premiere will be in the spring of 2022 with members of the chamber orchestra performing and of course, Kittiwake dancers. On behalf of Kittiwake, a big thank you to the RBC Foundation.
