Music & Dance Project

2020-2021 Selected Artists

We are excited to announce our first 2 groups of artists for the 2020-2021 season:

Restless Productions: Claire French (Dance) and James Maxwell (Music)

Kate Franklin (Dance) and Jeremy O'Neill (Music)
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).
Established in 2017 by Artistic Director Idan Cohen in Vancouver, Canada Ne. Sans is re-imagining and reconnecting Opera & Dance.
Directing opera through contemporary dance opens a whole new world of collaborative opportunities: an environment that involves working with singers, dancers, musicians, visual artists, and designers.
By experimenting and constantly expanding our knowledge of multi-disciplinary art forms, we are forging what we see as a natural hybridization of the Arts. Our ambition is to create exciting, thought-provoking, artistically challenging art- and to strengthen and inspire our community.

Selected applicants were invited to a two-day seminar on February 8 &9th, 2020.
Performances are planned to September, 2021 at TDC.

Supported by The City of Vancouver, Cultural grants.
