Curated by Yvonne Ng, with guest curators Peggy Baker and James Kudelka, the d:mic/fac MainStage Series features seven pieces and twelve artists from Victoria, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal. There are two world premieres, four Toronto premieres and one merited remount.

For the ninth edition of the festival, d:mic/fac has also added a first-time Late-night Series and Arts Encounters that include pre- and post-show chats with the artists, and Canadian dance film screenings, and visual arts exhibitions (Kristy Kennedy photos, Seth Ruggles Hile/Michael Caldwell installation) and workshops with visiting artists.

You can read personal interviews with the artists on their blog and follow the festival on facebook and soon-to-come on twitter. Plan early and get great deals with their festival passes!
