CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Studio 303’s REMIX
Deadline date: December 15
Re-interpreting, remixing or covering are rhetorical conventions in some performing art forms such as music or theatre where the same raw material can be radically reshaped by a new director, musician or conductor. What happens if we apply the same principle to dance?
Want to see your piece in a brand-new light? Studio 303 is looking for two choreographers interested in having their work remixed by Catherine Lavoie-Marcus or Sasha Kleinplatz & Andrew Tay (Wants&Needs). Take advantage of this opportunity to have mid-career artists reinterpret your work through their lens.
With an atypical background, Catherine Lavoie-Marcus examines the multiple facets of contemporary dance. Trained in the Axis Syllabus, Butoh, Contact Improvisation and theatre, she also earned a master’s degree in philosophy. She moves between choreographic and theoretical research, dance teaching and artistic mediation. She has presented her choreographies in Montréal since 2009, and most recently for Tangente with Acéphales (2012) and Schizes sur le Sundae (2013). Since finishing their B.F.A’s in Contemporary dance at Concordia University, Andrew Tay & Sasha Kleinplatz have presented their separate choreographic work in dance venues across Canada, New York City and in Europe. In 2005 they co-founded the company Wants&Needs Danse. Since then, the company has produced the wildly popular dance events Piss in the Pool, Short&Sweet and Involved. They will be part of Danse Danse 2014-15 season with the piece Chorus II
