Intercultural Indigenous Choreographers Creation Lab

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 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.

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. Each choreographer will collaborate with four dancers, and will have access to a composer and lighting designer to develop and workshop their concept.

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. Working with Alejandro Ronceria as well as creative collaborators including a composer and lighting designer, choreographers and dancers will present a short work in progress.

The IICC lab will also provide integrated opportunities for critical feedback, and creative dialogue circles with fellow choreographers and dancers.

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.

Dates: June 03 - June 21, 2019

Animating Our Stories | Indigenous Writing and Digital Illustration

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Overview

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.

What does the program offer?

Animating our Stories uses storytelling as a form of artistic expression through new technology. The program will develop participants’ ability to learn and expand their storytelling techniques for young audiences. Participants will focus on creating immersive and educational worlds – a key element in storytelling for youth.

The program will offer opportunities to work with editor faculty, and with an illustrator to highlight parts of participants’ stories to focus on for animation. Participants will work with digital media to determine what elements of their stories could be enhanced by animation. 

Who should apply?

Enrolment to this program is for individuals of Indigenous descent (status, non-status, Inuit, and Metis) only. This program is an ideal fit for emerging to established Indigenous writers and illustrators of narrative fiction and/or poetry for young readers. Applicants should be writers in any young reader genre with a strong interest in digital storytelling techniques, although previous experience with digital media is not necessary.

Successful applicants should plan to arrive at the program with a completed work or work in progress to be brought to life through technology.
