Through this process, Dance Victoria is interested in identifying new voices (choreographers, interpreters, writers). This project:
Dance Victoria has engaged celebrated choreographer Wen Wei Wang to lead a two-week intensive for three emerging choreographers and six dancers. All positions are paid.
Wen Wei will select dancers for a total company of six (three women and three men) and two apprentices from a series of auditions in Vancouver and Victoria.
Please submit your proposal to Stephen White, Executive Producer, at Dance Victoria at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 4:00 pm, Sunday April 30, 2017.
Auditions were Saturday, April 1, 2017 @ Dance Victoria Studios, 2750 Quadra Street
Check back here later this month to see who was selected for the company.
Writing Dance Lab
The Writing Dance Lab will be led by Kaija Pepper (Editor, Dance International Magazine, and celebrated author of three books and countless articles in major newspapers and magazines). Events at the Choreographic Lab will inspire a short piece of writing, which will be workshopped on the final two days. The lab is about in-process dance, and our writing, too, will be considered in process.
The Writing Dance Lab will take place between July 17 and 30 at Dance Victoria’s studios, with writers independently attending free 5 pm public showings and 10 am morning dance classes (as viewer or participant, as appropriate). There may be an opportunity to attend a rehearsal (to be confirmed). There are three hands-on workshop sessions with Kaija Pepper, one at the start of the lab and two at the end:
Monday, July 17: 9 – 11:30 am; Saturday, July 29: 10 am – 2 pm; Sunday, July 30, 1 – 5 pm
Please send a sample of writing (ideally on dance) and a brief letter outlining your interest in the workshop to email@example.com. Places are limited. Early application is advised. Writing Dance Lab Fee: $150 plus tax. Deadline: June 17, 2017.
Auditions were held in Victoria 3-5pm on Saturday April 1
* Check back here later this month to see who was selected for the company.
Proposals from choreographers will be accepted until 4pm Sunday April 30.
Writer applications will be accepted until June 17, 2017.
