dance: made in canada/fait au canada (d:mic/fac), a biennial repertory festival, will be running in August 2017 in Toronto. d:mic/fac presents both new and existing works by established and emerging choreographers working in Canada. We have two platforms: Mainstage, curated by three artists from Canada’s dance community, including Yvonne Ng, and What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) a lottery-based platform. Choreographers may apply for either a Mainstage presentation, a WYSIWYG presentation or both.
Founded in 2000 by Yvonne Ng, with Co-Festival Directors, Janelle Rainville and Jeff Morris, under the umbrella of princess productions, ten festivals of dance: made in canada/fait au canada (d:mic/fac) have been produced.
WHAT WE PROVIDE
d:mic/fac will provide festival publicity, festival marketing, a festival production team, venue and other support for applicants selected by the curators for presentation. Mainstage choreographers will receive a fee for their work, while WYSIWYG choreographers will receive an honorarium.
