News & Press: "Pitch New Works" in Action

KMP Artists and SEOP Dance Company’s production A Man’s Requiem

Tuesday, September 9, 2014   (0 Comments)

With a proven track record for success, ISPA’s Pitch New Works program continues to assist works in development with securing touring dates, regional agents, co-commissions, premieres, and more.

Today we’re highlighting a success story involving member organization KMP Artists and SEOP Dance Company’s production A Man’s Requiem. KMP Founder Kristopher McDowell discovered the work of choreographer KIM Young Chul and SEOP Dance Company through their pitch presentation at the ISPA Congress in Seoul, South Korea in June of 2012.

As a direct result of their participation in the program, KMP artists is now bringing SEOP Dance Company to the North America this fall. If any ISPA members would like to attend the forthcoming performances (listed below) or if any member venues would like to consider joining a future tour planned for February 2016, please contact
