Call for Dance Artists

Next Wave Creation Program

Check back in early 2019 for the next session

Presented by Mocean Dance, Next Wave is a new collaboration and creation program aimed at supporting emerging and mid-career dance artists, with a focus on Atlantic Canadian artists. Participating artists will work together to collaborate on the creation of new works which will be shared at an informal presentation. The program will be facilitated by Mocean’s Co-Artistic Directors, Susanne Chui and Sara Coffin, with its content and direction created in collaboration with participants.

Next Wave is intended to bring together emerging and mid-career dance artists and provide a framework for experimentation, dialogue, peer learning, exchange and support. This is not a commissioning program and the created works will remain with the artists. Participants will be encouraged to share their creative interests/practices and explore new ideas and working methods in collaborative and emergent ways toward the creation of new works.

Eligibility: Applicants must have completed a professional training program and actively pursuing a career in dance. Atlantic Canadian dance artists will be given priority.

Note: There is no travel support available through this program but Mocean can assist with Travel Grant applications.
