Dancers’ Studio West is pleased to announce our first annual Quick + Dirty, a one-day festival taking place on May 10th, 2020. Q + D features young, new voices presenting their very first works. The festival is paid opportunity, and we provide publicity and technical support in the theatre.
Prior to the festival, choreographers will have the opportunity to workshop their ideas and refine their pieces through a five-day Creative Intensive, guided by artistic director Sasha Ivanochko. Throughout the intensive, choreographers will have multiple chances to show their work, and to practice talking about the works as they are being developed. Nurturing the ability to clearly see what the qualities of a given work are, to coherently describe them, and to assess the work is the foundation for any critical artistic discussion.
We proudly announce this year’s line up:
Jocelyn Mah (Toronto)
Jennie Vanderkerkhove (Edmonton)
Marynia Fekecz (Edmonton)
Meghann Michalsky (Calgary)
Nicole Charlton Goodbrand (Calgary)
