Attention choreographers from St-John’s, Montreal and Edmonton!

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS : REMIX EXCHANGE

DEADLINE: APRIL 14th, 2017 

REMIX EXCHANGE : Re-interpreting, remixing or covering are rhetorical conventions in music and theatre where the same raw material can be radically re-shaped by a new director, musician or conductor. What happens if we apply the same principle to dance?

Co-produced by Studio 303 (Montreal), NDW (St-John’s) and Mile Zero Dance (Edmonton), in partnership with the CanDance network, REMIX Exchange fosters cross-regional artistic collaboration, experimentation and community building.

This project seeks choreographers from each region interested in remixing and/or in having their short works or excerpts remixed by another artist.

Overview of Project Structure:

  • Each city/presenter will choose two local choreographers who:
    • Have a pre-existing work or excerpt (15 minutes max) with 1-3 dancers.
    • Are willing to have their work remixed by an out of town choreographer
    • Whose dancers are available to work on the tour dates.
  • Each city will also choose one Remixer who will travel to the other two cities to remix a different local work during the course of a one-week residency.

Each showing will include two original works followed by their new remixed versions.

Tour Dates:

September 18th-24th 2017             Residency and showings in Montreal, QC
November 12th-19th 2017            Residency and showings in St-John’s, NL
October 9th-15th 2017                        Residency and showings in Edmonton, AB

Details:

  • Original works and their remixes should last 10-15 minutes each. The public showings will be informal and low-tech, and will be followed by a discussion with the public.
  • The choreographers and up to 3 dancers per project will be paid an hourly wage for rehearsals, as well as a performance honorarium.
  • There is a budget for travel, lodging and per diem for the Remixers.
