CALL FOR LOCAL ARTISTS



Our current, evolving orientation in Espace danse is directed more decidedly (but not exclusively) towards emerging, local artists in the earlier phases of creating their own performance works, and who propose imaginative strategies of audience engagement and question traditional forms of presentation, and research-based activities and events.

In a change from former years, we will be programming in six months segments (September-December 2017 and January-May 2018). The deadlines are those following : May 2, 2016 for the autumn 2017 and December 1, 2016 for the winter-spring 2018. A committee of three, including our curator, will make final choices and the answers will be sent between six and eight weeks after application deadline.


FOR THE AUTUMN 2017 :


DEADLINE TO APPLY :

- May 2, 2016 for autumn 2017

WHO IS IT FOR ?

- professional contemporary dance/movement artist
- dance/interdisciplinary collective of artists

TYPES OF ELIGIBLE PROJECTS :

- Shows in the venue
- Habitations (Free exploratory working sessions in group)
- Workshops, seminars, and other kinds of “working groups” of a practical and theoretic nature.
- Digital arts projects (Video, installations, performance)
- Non-traditional, imaginative presentation forms engaging audiences.

AVAILABLE SPACES :

- Main theatre (dimensions : 40’4" D x 48’ L (12,30m x 14,64m))
- Laboratory (dimensions : 49’2" D x 49’2" L (15m x 15m))
- Café-bar (depending on the project)
- Other (depending on the project)

HOW TO SUBMIT A PROJECT :

If you are living and working in Montreal, here is how to proceed when submitting a project:

1ST STEP : Please consider our mandate to determine if your work is a good fit with our artistic vision and priorities.

2ND STEP : You need to contact our curator to discuss about your work. Please consider inviting her to your performances and/or studio sessions so that she can become familiar with your work over time. She is accessible year round.

3RD STEP : When a specific project is ready to propose, fill out the form above and send it to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with in cc This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ). Your capacity to articulate your project with lucidity and vividness is an asset!


If you live and work outside of Montréal but within Canada, an initial conversation with our curator can take place through Skype. She also attends showcase events throughout the country on a regular basis (for instance Dance in Vancouver, the All Networks meetings, Dance in Canada Festival, etc.) where you can schedule a meeting with her in person.


If you are an artist living outside of Canada, due to our commitment to local work and the ever-mounting number of inquiries being sent to us over the web, we advise you that it is not useful to make a submission to us with no previous contact. If you do travel to Montréal for any reason, our curator would be pleased to meet with you in person and have a conversation with you about your work and the situation of arts presenting in Montréal. We generally give priority to artists hailing from outside of Canada by way of collaborative projects with various presenting networks, and also to artist-driven exchanges with work that is being developing jointly between Québec artists and those from other countries.
