Ne. Sans in collaboration with The Dance Centre’s Special Projects and Partnerships, is launching a new project, supporting collaboration between classical musicians and dance artists. The project offers 3 dance artists and 3 musicians (individuals and groups) the opportunity to collaborate on the creation of short, approximately 20 min pieces. Selected projects receive a fully subsidized studio space of 80 hours in total, technical support, and compensation for a sharing/presentation at the end of the process (September 2021).
Selected applicants were invited to a two-day seminar on February 8 &9th, 2020.
Online showings are scheduled to September, 2021.
