Call for Professional Dance Artists from the Atlantic Provinces

Call for Professional Dance Artists from the Atlantic Provinces

Dear Dance Artists,

We cordially invite you to Strategy Dance 2019. We are proud to announce that this year’s event is organized in partnership with the Acadian Association of Professional Artists of New Brunswick (AAAPNB) and ArtsLink in order to include dancers from both linguistic backgrounds. Through this event, we hope to create strategies and develop the dance community together, since dance is an art form free of language barriers.

During this event, the second edition of Carte Blanche will take place on November 30th, 2019, at the Salle Bernard Leblanc on the 3rd floor of the Aberdeen Cultural Center at 8pm. The event will be followed by a business meeting the next day to follow up on projects launched during last year’s edition and to continue the development of the dance community by including our Anglophone and Aboriginal colleagues. This is a wonderful opportunity to travel to Moncton for a weekend dedicated to the Art of Dance!

Carte Blanche (November 30th, 8PM-10PM)

The aim of Carte Blanche is to offer a platform adapted to the needs of dance artists during which they can present work. Whether the project is in the research stage, in development or about to be completed, the only criteria to participate is to have something to share. Even improvisation (with or without audience participation) is more than welcome. You would only have to specify what you would like to show in the attached application form. The presence of peers and an informed audience will allow you to have feedback on your work whether it is vocal or sensory. Presenting, sharing and discussing in an inclusive environment are the objectives of Carte Blanche.

 

We are giving you carte blanche in the use of space. Shoes at the door, spectators and dancers will share the dance floor. We want to give you the maximum use of space while breaking the 4th wall. It will be your choice where you would like the audience to be during your performance (maximum of 10 minutes). Standing, sitting, in a circle, moving … it’s up to you.

 

In addition to a platform to perform, we will be providing a video of your performance that you can use for grants and future applications. The money accumulated at the door (in the form of a voluntary contribution) will be divided equally between the acts and given to the person/company who submitted the project.

As for the selection process, we would like to accept as many projects as possible, but if we do not have enough time, as we will only have 2 hours for the event, we will draw candidates by lottery. Preference will be given for artists from the Atlantic provinces.

The chosen artists will be responsible for covering their own travel and accommodation expenses. Nevertheless, it may be possible to find housing among local artists.

Please fill out the attached application form before October 2nd, 2019, if you wish to present something at the event and send it to the following email: carteblanche.acadie@gmail.com . We will let you know on October 11th if your application was successful.

Business Meeting (December 1st, 1PM – 4PM)

In preparation for the December 1st business meeting, we invite you to think about some of the political issues that you believe are priorities for the advancement of dance in New Brunswick. If you were responsible for one of the projects launched after last year’s meeting, please prepare an update of the project with your committee in order to present it to the group. The purpose of this meeting is to provide the AAAPNB and ArtsLink with the needs we have collectively determined are our priorities as dance artists. These associations will then be able to better represent us and defend our interests on the political level. We will send another email in October with more details and the registration form for this meeting.

Hoping that you are as excited as we are,

The exhibition Elisgenooasig, Entre: Mêler, Lacer, Lier, Inter: Fuse, Lace, Relate groups the work of artists Tara Francis, Nicole Haché, and Indigo Rain Poirier. In March 2019, l’Association acadienne des artistes professionnel.le.s du Nouveau-Brunswick (AAAPNB), ArtsLink NB, and Mawi’art: Wabanaki Artist Collective created the Cross-Cultural Creative Residency that brought together Indigenous, Francophone, and Anglophone artists.

Elisgenooasig, Entre: Mêler, Lacer, Lier, Inter: Fuse, Lace, Relate explores how through the experience of working and immersing in another community and environment it can allow a dialogue around shared experiences, knowledge and understanding. 

Tara Francis is a visual artist of Mi’kmaq and Irish descent from Elsipogtog First Nation.  In her work, she is reimagining traditional Mi’kmaq teachings with a contemporary sensibility. Tara’s practice includes silk painting, acrylic, and porcupine quillwork. She facilitates workshops, participates in artist residences, and continues to exhibit her work locally and internationally.

Nicole Haché is from l’Île Lamèque and is now based in Caraquet, New Brunswick. Since 2002, she has been actively involved in the effervescence of arts and culture in the province. During her artistic journey, the Acadian artist stands out by participating in several projects of solo and group exhibitions, as well as several artist residencies in the provincial, national and international levels, in Europe, North America, and Africa.

 

Indigo Rain Poirier is an electronic musician originally from Kingsclear First Nation, now based in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Indigo is an almost entirely self taught musician, learning how to play and write music by way of online resources and communities. In 2018, Indigo was named the Music NB Electronic Musician of the Year and has toured their project Wangled Teb, playing at Flourish Festival, Quality Block Party, Pop Montreal and Sled Island in Calgary to name a few.

Elisgenooasig, Entre: Mêler, Lacer, Lier, Inter: Fuse, Lace, Relate is on display starting September 6th at the Saint John Arts Centre until October 25, 2019.

3E Collective was formed during the fall of 2018 while Emma Hassencahl-Perley, Erin Goodine, and Emilie Grace Lavoie were hired as emerging curators at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery to curate the 50th anniversary exhibition of the New Brunswick Art Bank. While working together, they discovered that they worked well collaboratively, sharing knowledge and experience from their different educational and cultural backgrounds.
