Now, read carefully the following information regarding our next performances. Because everyone will be busy and most of us away at some point over Christmas time, we thought we would post a CALL FOR ARTISTS for both December and January performances.
PLEASE SPECIFY THE DATE OF YOUR CHOICE WHEN EMAILING TO PARTICIPATE IN INTERSECTION PROJECT. YOU ARE WELCOME TO REGISTER FOR BOTH!
HISTORY AND DESCRIPTION
Driven by the success of May 1st 2010 Public Performance in Toronto, organized in conjunction with Montreal artist Normand Marcy and Tangente, Laboratoire de Mouvement Contemporain, Priscilla Guy and Kate Nankervis are launching Intersection Project, an initiative that aims to highlight the presence of artists in urban landscapes. Through pedestrian and simple movement vocabulary in city landscapes, the dance is accessible and belongs to anyone who is walking by. Bodies become organic sculptures against urban architectures.
The performances organized by Intersection Project are opportunities for artists and audiences to meet in unexpected and unofficial settings; a reminder performance art also lives outside theatres. Art is essential and it lives everywhere we decide to allow for it. Art reflects the common needs and wants members of society share. Intersection Project is an occasion to re-iterate the spontaneous and engaging nature of art as performance emerges from urban architectures and melt with the city landscapes.
Throughout the upcoming year, Intersection Project will organize 10 monthly performances in the Toronto's downtown area, gathering dancers, actors and performers from diverse backgrounds. In the nature of spontaneity, there is no promotions or marketing for the events. We believe the recurrent aspect of the project will stimulate curiosity and interest for it.
SATURDAY DECEMBER 18TH
11:45AM TO 2:30 PM
SATURDAY JANUARY 22ND
11:45AM TO 2:30 PM
We are looking for performers to participate in the fourth and fifth performances of the year!
These performances will occur on Saturday, December 18th and Saturday, January 22nd. Looking for up to 25 performers for each date. Participants must be available from 11:45am to 2:30pm at least.
**Intersection Project has applied for funding to cover artists fees. However, until the results of grants applications and confirmation with our sponsors, there will be no artist fees. As part of your registration, we will track your HOURS as PERFORMERS for each event and participating artists will be paid retroactively as we get funding results. Artists involved must be ready to participate as they believe in the project and mandate and volunteer their time in the case funding is not successful. It is important for us to pay participating artists, and we assure to you all efforts will be made to provide proper fees as the project continues. Thank you for understanding. **
