We are pleased to announce that the first showing of the 2018 W.I.P. New Dance Series will take place on Saturday June 16th at the Free Flow Dance Centre with a new selection of choreographers.
This series is designed to provide a venue for both emerging and professional choreographers who are working in the area of contemporary and innovative choreography and is open to all dance artists in both the province of Saskatchewan and across Canada. The performance will present up to 4 different choreographers. The showings are open to the public and will take place at The Free Flow Dance Centre 224 25th St. W. Saskatoon.
The choreographers featured in the June W.I.P. performance include: Holly Treddenick (Toronto), Jackie Latendresse (Saskatoon), Tina Bertoncini (Saskatoon) Lily Gillman and Lila Jean Dezall (Calgary) The Series mentor is Graham McKelvie (Director of the Contemporary dance program at the Alberta Ballet in Calgary)
The most important aspect of this new series is YOU! Yes it is the audience. You will get a chance to meet the choreographers and hear them speak about their work. Each choreographer will ask the audience for certain types of feedback that they feel will be instrumental to helping them further develop their work. The work will then be presented to you and afterwards you will be given a few moments to jot down your observations, comments, criticisms or even doodles are welcome! This audience feedback will be collected at the end of the performance and distributed to the choreographers.
The W.I.P. is the first series of its kind in Saskatchewan and is fast becoming a staple in Saskatchewan’s Dance Diet! So everybody get W.I.P. ed! If you would like to help out by volunteering for the series or for more info or interviews please contact Jackie Latendresse at 665-5998 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
