Call for Choreographers:
The W.I.P. (works in progress) Series in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan is looking for professional
and emerging choreographers to present original and innovative works in progress in Saskatoon.
Jackie Latendresse is the Series Coordinator.
Informal showings will take place twice a year and the season culminates in a Gala event of finished works.
The first showing of work will be on May 17th 2008 and the second batch of choreographers will be
presented in September 2008.
The Gala event is to be held in December 2008.
W.I.P.’s should be an exploration using contemporary/modern or experimental style. Choreographers will receive no less than five and no greater than twelve minutes to present their work. They will be expected to speak about their work prior to or immediately after the presentation of it for up to a maximum of ten minutes. Written audience feedback will be collected and distributed to the choreographers. An honorarium will be available for professional choreographers. Billets will be provided for all out of town parties upon request. The W.I.P. Series uses the definition of a professional artist outlined in the Canadian Artists Code and used by the Canadian Alliance of Dance Artists. All artists presented will be considered for participation in the final Gala of finished works in the autumn.
