12 MINUTES MAX
SUPPORTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF CHOREOGRAPHIC IDEAS THROUGH EXPERIMENTATION AND DIALOGUE.
12 Minutes Max (12MM) seeks to foster experimentation and the development of a choreographic idea or work-in-progress, from the initial stages through to the first public encounter. Artists have access to support and feedback from the facilitators, the opportunity to share the work with their peers in the program and participate in community dialogues with audiences at public showings.

The original 12 Minutes Max concept was pioneered in 1979 by On the Boards in Seattle. In 1994 The Dance Centre launched a Vancouver edition which for over fifteen years provided an opportunity for artists to show eclectic and innovative new works that ran under twelve minutes. The program was relaunched in its current format in 2014.
