Montreal’s dance-theatre company Trial & Eros recently held a raffle with an unusual first prize: an opportunity to perform a custom-made solo by company Artistic Director Deborah Dunn. Vancouver-based dance artist Delia Brett of the company MachineNoisy won the raffle, which was held on February 20th, 2010 at l’Agora de la danse following an informal presentation of the results of a research period for a new work. The raffle was open to both amateurs and professionals; winners were guaranteed a public performance in a location to be determined. The $1800 raised by the raffle will go towards the company’s projects, as well as the creation of the solo, which will begin this summer.
