Seeking Proposals for Dance On The Saskatchewan 2019

Deadline: March 25, 2019 - April 30, 2019

Dance Saskatchewan is calling for proposals for its 2019 Dance On The Saskatchewan Summer Series. There are five Monday evenings available: July 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th and August 12th. The evenings of dance take place on the tented outdoor stage at Shakespeare On The Saskatchewan site in Saskatoon, SK.

The proposals typically come from one individual who will be the "Director" of that Monday night's performance, and will be given an honorarium in which to remunerate themselves and other dancers involved. The size of this fee reflects our expectation that proposals will be for dance pieces already created, as it is not meant to cover the expenses that arise from creation, rehearsal, costuming, etc.

Dance Saskatchewan will supply the venue, house technician, front of house and box office staff/volunteers, Series Project Coordinator and the marketing materials for each Monday night.

Preference will be given to proposals that reflect a focus on quality, and the strategic priorities of Dance Saskatchewan, namely diversity, opportunity for audience engagement in pre and post performance activity, and inclusivity of the dance community from outside Saskatoon. It should also be noted that, although a cross section of different artistic practices can be incorporated into the proposal, the evening's work/works should have DANCE - any type of dance - as the primary core of what is presented.

Proposals should be sent by April 30th, 2019 to the Interim Executive Director, Krista J. Konkin. Before applying, we strongly encourage applicants to contact Krista first to get a further understanding of the Series and its goals for 2019.
