Eligibility:

Overview

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 esteemed faculty including Director of Dance Training, 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. 

What does the program offer?

Choreographers will have the opportunity to challenge and develop their creative concepts, and engage in one-to-one mentorship in choreography as well as deep dramaturgical exploration.

Through exploration of voice and the process of re-embodiment including daily movement work, choreographers and dancers will experiment with developing and re-defining their own body histories and language.

The IICC lab will also provide integrated opportunities for critical feedback, and creative dialogue circles with fellow choreographers and dancers, leading to a public performance that will be held in the Jenny Belzberg Theatre on July 29th, 2022.

Who should apply?

This program is open to Indigenous Canadian and Indigenous international choreographers / dancers.

We welcome applications from emerging and mid-level choreographers interested in examining lived experience, personal narratives, and cultural histories as well as developing personal choreographic work.

Professional Indigenous dancers working in diverse forms are also encouraged to apply.

Program Dates: July 11 - July 29, 2022

Eligibility:

Overview

The Indigenous Playwrights Nest is a two week residency that offers Indigenous playwrights an inspiring environmental workspace to write their plays surrounded by nature in the Leighton Artists Studios. The Indigenous Playwrights Nest is designed to offer support and space for new works in various stages of dramaturgical development. This residency includes revisiting textual work on plays that have had some performance life but are still in process of finalizing, as well as open to new works in development.

Writers will be on campus, while actors will be hired to do online-only readings in alignment with playwrights writing needs. 

What does the program offer?

This self-guided residency will support the development and creation of a new work by the Indigenous writer(s) working in theatre by providing actors, space, and resources for Indigenous writers to further their career and scripts that have exceptional merit and high impact. The program also offers the inclusion of Treaty 7 and area knowledge keepers and Elders to witness and to provide wisdom that will enhance community engagement in the project, and be a resource to the performers, if requested and appropriate. On campus, the program creates dedicated space and time away from home to add to the depth and breadth of the work in development.

Who should apply?

Indigenous artists in Canada who have a play in development or are creating a new work are encouraged to apply.

As we re-open campus and welcome artists back to programming in a safe and mindful way, we have made the difficult decision to restrict recruitment for on-campus programs to those currently residing in Canada.  We continue to monitor the situation closely and look forward to the future relaxation of travel measures that will allow us to welcome international artists once again. 

Application Deadline: September 15, 2021

Program Dates: November 01 - November 12, 2021
