Banff Centre | Clifford E. Lee Choreography Award 2022

Country:

City:

Overview
The biennial Clifford E. Lee Choreography Award, at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, is open to any emerging Canadian dance choreographer or company demonstrating exceptional talent. We are seeking new voices, ideas, and approaches to professional dance that can be supported through the award.

Established in 1978 by the Clifford E. Lee Foundation to encourage the development of Canadian choreographers. Nominees for the Clifford E. Lee Choreography Award will submit a proposal for a work that explores a contemporary approach to dance through any style. The work should be full-length, and travel to Banff with a company of no more than 15, including designers and production team members. 

The successful artist or company will be awarded with a cash prize, and offered one creation residency and one production residency at Banff Centre, subject to schedules aligning for the work in question. Beyond this support, the nominee must demonstrate an ability to realize the new work through future presentations. Banff Centre will champion the recipient(s) in their vision and realization of the work.

What does the program offer?
The Clifford E. Lee Choreography Award is a combination of a $14,000 CAD cash prize for the commission of a new work and the support of two residencies at Banff Centre. The cash award will be paid in two equal installments, to support any aspect of the work that the choreographer sees fit over this two-year period (e.g., fees, set construction, travel for company members to-from Banff, etc.). 

The residencies take place over a two-year period with an initial residency in studio of up to two weeks; December 5 to 16, 2022 during Banff Centre’s Dance Artist in Residence program. The second, a production-focused residency in a suitable venue on the Banff campus, will be offered the following year, subject to the project’s timeline aligning with activities at Banff Centre.

If the applicant requires but does not have access to a company of dancers for this first residency, Banff Centre can facilitate an arrangement for a suitable, professional company of dancers to support the project on site.

The first residency will offer meals and accommodation for all company members, and a studio with limited technical support.

The second residency will take place in a venue suitable to the project, with three technicians (lighting, sound, and staging) for 7.5 hours a day for two five-day weeks. Additional crew, scenic construction, or technical support may be negotiable.  Banff Centre will not act as producer of the work. A public performance, or sharing of work in process, is expected at the end of the second residency.

Partial transportation support to and from residency may be available depending on company size and location.  Further opportunities to attend other Banff Centre programs in Dance may be available to the award recipient(s) as part of their professional development. 

Who should apply?
Applications will be accepted from emerging Canadian (citizen or permanent resident) choreographers that are currently working with, or have access to, a company of dancers that can be utilized in the creation and production of the work. If the applicant does not have access to a company of dancers, Banff Centre can facilitate an arrangement for a suitable, professional company of dancers to support the project on site. Nominations may be made by colleagues of the nominee with their approval.

Any style of dance, approached with a contemporary point of view, is welcomed.

Eligibility:

Overview
The Dance Artists in Residence program is designed specifically for dance artists to have focused time for the creation and development of new works in Banff Centre studios, with support as desired from a faculty team of professional dance dramaturgs.

This program brings a number of dance artists to the Banff campus at the same time to work on their respective projects, while enjoying opportunities for artistic connection and exchange with peers. The residency is intended for artists working in the initial creation phase of a new work, which they will develop over the course of one or two weeks in residence.

What does the program offer?
This residency offers a range of dance spaces depending on participants' needs and studio availability, and artists will be provided with a basic sound system. As this program focusses on creating and developing ideas and forms of practice, participants will not have access to production spaces. Banff Centre is unable to provide support around production or technical elements.

Artists are expected to be creating work during this residency, however are not expected to give a final performance or showing. Participants will be offered the opportunity to have an open studio showing at the end of their stay, if desired. 

Applicants are encouraged to bring their own dramaturgs, however for those unable to bring a collaborating dramaturg, there will be two dance dramaturgs on faculty who will be available to engage as required.

Who should apply?
We invite project proposals from experienced, professional individual artists, artistic collectives, and companies worldwide. Artists at various stages of development are encouraged to apply.  Applying companies are limited to eight members. Large requests for technical support may affect the outcome of the adjudication as this residency has minimal resources for technical and production. 

*Financial Aid of 100% of the tuition fee and 50% of accommodation is available for this program.

Program Dates: December 5 - 16, 2022

The residency is aimed at individual artists or collective groups of up to 5 artists from the field of dance, performing arts, and performance (also interdisciplinary). It will enable open-artistic research on a self-selected theme.

STUDIO2 is a work and research space for the independent performing arts in Berlin-Kreuzberg whose proximity to the ITI's Media Library for Dance and Theatre and the associated Media Studio offers the residency project the opportunity to develop diverse research approaches.

A residency includes

  • Free use of the 165sqm studio and adjoining spaces within the two-week residency
  • Workspace in the Media Library for Dance and Theatre and professional advice on research approaches
  • Monitoring of the work process on the social media channels of STUDIO2 and the ITI

During the residency, a public event should take place that offers insights into the working process. The form of this presentation is up to the artist(s) (adaptations based on the applicable COVID-19 rules are possible).

IMPORTANT: Unfortunately, we are currently unable to offer any financial support in the form of scholarships, reimbursement of travel expenses or accommodation. It is also not possible to live in STUDIO2 or other ITI premises during the residency. However, we are happy to assist in finding accommodation.

OPEN CALL BIDFF #8 – SHORT DANCE FILMS
(UN)SAFE ZONES

Filmmakers, dance artists, animators, visual artists and digital art makers are invited to submit their works for the International and Romanian Short Film Competitions of BIDFF – Bucharest International Dance Film Festival.

Through the (un)safe zones theme, the eighth edition of BIDFF (September 8 - 11, 2022) invites artists and audiences alike to witness art redefining its shapes in a world in crisis. The artistic formats undergo mandatory mutations: the film leaves the cinema, the dance leaves the stage, the stage becomes a space open to debates, and the reality is radically transformed by imaginative artistic manifestations.

BIDFF #8 questions the future’s safety in the face of current events and wonders what forms of art we are heading towards. What molds will movies accede to? What topics will gain relevance as we are forced to be more aware of national, bodily, and inner boundaries?

We are looking for:
→ short dance films of a maximum of 20 minutes, produced in the last two years;
→ short dance films in the genres of dance film, screen-dance, dance for camera, musical, animation, fiction or documentary about the body or the world of dance, experimental shorts conceptually oriented around the idea of movement;
→ short dance films with a minimum quality of Full HD (1920 x 1080);
→ each director can submit a maximum of two films.

We are NOT looking for:
→ music videos, trailers or recordings of performances, films already submitted in the previous years to BIDFF, one-minute films, commercials, home-made videos;

Prize Summary: 
A prize pool of 1500 euros
Prizes Details: 

BIDFF awards excellence, novelty and courage in filmmaking with a prize pool of 1500 euros.

Awards:

→ Best International Film

→ Best Romanian Film
