Call for Artists Festival of New Dance 2020

NDW's annual Festival of New Dance is known for presenting compelling and provocative contemporary works by dance and interdisciplinary artists from across Canada and abroad. Our mission is to curate a program that challenges and inspires our community to think deeply about the performance experience, to stimulate conversations between artists and audiences that nurture a wider understanding of artistic aesthetics as well as social and cultural points of view. The festival features main stage performances, site-specific events, workshops, forums, film screenings and art exhibitions.
