Calling all Toronto-based choreographers!
Dancemakers Presents: TWObyFOUR a festival of duets 2012

Dancemakers is inviting choreographers to submit work for consideration for the 2012 DMP Two by Four Festival of Duets. This edition of the festival increases the number of presentations from three to four including one shared program and two full-length works. We are specifically looking for a single work for the shared program.

The Festival takes place between January 17 and 28, 2012 but the shared program is scheduled for January 21-23, 2011.

* The work can be a world premiere or something that has already been seen here in Toronto or elsewhere.
* The work should be about 25 to 35 minutes in length and suitable for the Dancemakers Theatre at the Distillery.
* We provide a guaranteed performance fee.

Dancemakers Artistic Director Michael Trent is the festival curator and is looking for work that responds to any or all of the values of contemporary aesthetics, cross-disciplinary dialogues and collaborative engagement.

Applicants should submit a one-page letter about the work and how it reflects these values and a two-page (maximum) biography of major collaborators.

The application should also include a DVD (or a link to an online video) of the finished work or of a work-in-progress that would be completed by the festival dates.

Deadline for application is Monday, August 15, 2011.
