Call to Artists: Soo Ryu Dance Festival 2012

In Call to Artists on July 26, 2011 by danceumbrella

Deadline: December 31, 2011

The Soo Ryu Dance Festival is a weekend-long, biennial event in November hosted by the KDSSC. Our mandate is to offer a stage for the highly artistic dance performance of both established dancers and emerging artists of diverse cultural backgrounds in order for the audience to experience something unique and exciting to enrich diversity and multiculturalism.

We are inviting independent artists, dance ensembles and companies to submit proposals for pieces that honor and explore their culture/heritage. Dances of any genre are accepted. New to the 2012 Soo Ryu, we will celebrate the cross-disciplinary collaboration and how it enriches the artists’ as well as audience’s experience. We welcome submission of multi-disciplinary pieces that are dance-centered. Conventional dance performances are still accepted and will form the core of our festival next year. Works by established and/or emerging artists are welcomed. Selection will be made by our artistic director and festival committee based on artistic quality, originality and how well it matches our festival’s artistic vision and theme.

Requirement: dancers’ and/or company’s biography, piece description and video samples of your work

61 Billington Crescent
Don Mills, Ontario
