Workshop with Mélanie Demers, MAYDAY

Designed to allow participants to familiarize themselves with the curiosities and priorities of Mélanie Demers, this workshop is a true immersion in the MAYDAY universe. It will provide tools to explore the questions and intuitions that permeate the company’s repertoire. It will retrace the path that leads from the quivering of an idea to the deployment of a reality. Body work, heart work, voice work, actor work… Creation at MAYDAY is like an equation with multiple variables, impossible to solve without embracing the unknown.

This workshop is designed for professional dancers and students in their final year of training.

THE BUSINESS OF DANCE INFORMATION SESSIONS 2021-2022

The costs and opportunities when producing a show: avoiding sticker shock

Chengyan Boon, Lead Technician

For many choreographers, putting on the producer’s hat can be stressful. There is a lot of conflicting information flying around, seemingly hidden fees and unexpected expenses that can arise. This session is intended to help demystify all this by addressing the producing of a show from three sides: 1. roles to be covered on the artists’ side; 2. expectations of costs from the venue side and the breakdown of a Faris quote; and 3. questions to keep in mind when comparing venues when choosing one for your piece. Concrete numbers and costs will be provided from the perspective of a rental of the Faris Family Studio but the discussion will be inclusive of other performance venues. Learn about the expectations around venue costs, staffing, equipment rentals, insurance, music licensing and more!

Bring your questions and join Dance Central Lead Technician, Chengyan Boon for an informal info session over Zoom on Thursday, Feb 10, 12.30 – 2pm.
