If you would like to apply to Dusk Dances as a choreographer for future seasons, please send us a proposal that includes:
- An artistic statement
- A description of your piece
- A CV
- Support material (video links)
Choreographers can apply to adapt an existing piece to a park environment. If you are applying in this category, please include the piece you would like to remount in your support material.
Choreographers can also apply for the commission of a new work. If you are applying in this category, please include as much information as you can in your piece description (number of dancers, music, site, theme, etc.) Please note that it is always preferable to include a variety of pieces in your support material. This allows us to get to know you as a choreographer. If you are applying for a commission, it is highly recommended and very much preferred that you experience Dusk Dances at least once before applying.
Programming is normally completed a year and a half in advance, with commissioned works often being selected 2 years in advance.
We encourage you to let curator Sylvie Bouchard know about your upcoming performances.
If you would like to apply as an opening band, or opening group (live music and workshop), please send us support material as well as a description of your proposed half an hour opening.
If you would like to apply as a host, please contact Sylvie Bouchard directly by e-mail.
All proposals should be mailed to:
84 Ashburnham Road
Toronto, ON M6H 2K5
