Two artists awarded Co3+STRUT dance fellowships

Laura Boynes and Georgia Van Gils share fellowships totalling $90,000 in a new initiative to enrich WA's independent dance ecology.

Two Perth-based independent dance companies, Co3 (pronounced Koh-three) Contemporary Dance and STRUT Dance, have combined to offer inaugural dance fellowships that will enable recipients to draw on the respective capabilities and resources of both companies.

Last week (9 August) the companies jointly announced that the inaugural Co3+STRUT Dance Fellowships have been awarded to Laura Boynes (mid-career fellowship of $70,000) and Georgia Van Gils (early career fellowship of $20,000).
