What does the program offer?

Exchange Choreography Festival


EXCHANGE Choreography Festival provides a meeting point for professional dancers to showcase their choreographic work and engage in dialogue about process. Informal showings in a black box setting, discussion roundtables, lectures, and networking events are also included in the festival weekend, which runs in conjunction with the Summer Heat International Dance Festival and its array of master classes, repertory workshops, and performances.  10-15 choreographers are selected by The Bell House to present original dance works for EXCHANGE up to 10 minutes in length.

Intercultural Indigenous Choreographers Creation Lab


This three-week lab for intercultural Indigenous choreographers and dancers focuses on re-embodiment and Indigenous voice. Departing from the belief that the body is the site of emotional, cultural, political, and spiritual history, the lab supports the exploration and creative development of personal voice and physical vocabulary. The program will explore the intersections of identity, movement, and creation.

The IICC Lab is led by Alejandro Ronceria, a Canadian choreographer of Colombian descent and a pioneer in Indigenous dance globally. Participants for the lab will be selected from diverse Indigenous backgrounds. Three Indigenous choreographers and 12 professional Indigenous dancers will be accepted.

Animating Our Stories | Indigenous Writing and Digital Illustration


This program will ignite Indigenous authors and artists focusing on young readers to delve into new ways of storytelling using digital illustration techniques. Through guidance from experienced faculty including recognized Indigenous authors, an illustrator, and a digital animator, participants will learn to lift a story off the page, texturize it, and animate elements of it to life.

Animating Our Stories is a space where storytellers, content producers, and digital media artists will collaborate to fuse modern presentation techniques with the art of storytelling. Participants will explore technology as they learn to illuminate the audience experience of their already vividly imagined stories.
