Moving Others

The relationship between audience engagement and attendance By Emma Doran

Most dance artists and presenters must negotiate the tension between creating work that meets their artistic goals, that is accessible to their community and that provides the fiscal support required to live as an artist and to run a company. Emma Doran speaks with artists, organizations and presenters across the country to discuss who they envision their audience, how they are seeking to reach those individuals and what constitutes meaningful engagement with them.

 

Cross-Canada Checkup

Canada Dance Festival takes the pulse of dance in Canada By Kathleen Smith

Now gearing up for its twentieth edition, CDF offers an important accounting of the state of the art of dance across the country. With regular “off-year” events and a full-on festival every other year, the festival is dedicated to growing audiences in the Ottawa region and providing a meeting site for dance artists across regional, generational, cultural and disciplinary lines.

Paradoxe Mélodie

This May, the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal has invited Danièle Desnoyers to create a choreographic work for its program, pairing six dancers from her company, with the music of the new organ played by OSM’s organist-in-residence Jean-Willy Kunz.

Canada Dance Festival Roundup

By Lys Stevens

In June, as festival season takes flight across Canada, the Canada Dance Festival (CDF) kicks off in Ottawa. I took on the CDF by bike, for the ease of speed when moving from one venue to another.

Tilting – Resettlement

Dancer/choreographer Caroline Niklas-Gordon’s solo Tilting – Resettlement explores Newfoundland’s Resettlement Program that took place between the 1950s and 1970s.
