Mile Zero Dance: Call for Submissions 2017-18

Mile Zero Dance is a non-profit charitable dance company based in Edmonton, AB, with a 1,200 square foot studio and 600 square foot gallery/front space that we program throughout the year. Situated in Little Italy, we are interested in performance work that pushes boundaries and expectations, especially dance, body, or movement based work.

For our 33rd Season, we are seeking artists from a wide variety of backgrounds for:

1) Short Multidisciplinary Acts, 10 minutes or less, for cabaret situations such as Dirt Buffet Cabaret or mixed evenings such as Alberta Culture Days. Artists should prepare a video clip (online), short bio, and a description of work to be presented. Any media considered. (Ongoing Submissions)

2) Dance Crush 2017-18. MZD is seeking artists for full-length studio evenings. Two artists from outside of Edmonton will be featured. Artists should have movement as their primary focus, and be willing to engage in some form of Outreach beyond their presentation. Artists will have access to MZD’s Spazio Performativo studio, storefront gallery space and technical resources, however limited. Artists should send CV, bio, description of work (max 1 pg) and samples of work. (Deadline Feb 15/17)

3) Artist Bank. Any artist of any medium interested in being considered for future collaboration with MZD or other dance artists. These contacts will be shared with others- please send CV. (Ongoing Submissions)
