— Exchanges between artists in the performing arts and people with visual impairments

Mon Sep 13, 2021

A collaboration between Danse-Cité and Emile Pineault
Emile Pineault will act as coordinator and facilitator of the project. 

The goal of the project Décloisonner la multisensorialité is to generate a horizontal space for the exchange of knowledge and experience around the issues of multisensoriality and accessibility in dance practices. During workshops, open studios and invitations to attend creative processes, different artists will be invited to share their current creation with a group of spectators living with visual impairments in order to exchange, discuss and initiate a collective and constructive reflection on the sensorial modes of a work in progress.  

This call for projects is addressed to creative artists in the performing arts who will be in the process of creation between January 2021 and August 2021 for projects that work on issues such as multisensoriality, accessibility or modes of non-visual approach to the work to participate in a cross-cutting exchange activity with a group of people with visual impairments. Choreographic projects can be at any stage of research and creation. They must take place in Montreal.

Choreographers who wish to propose a project must provide :
— Artistic approach (max 250 words)
— Brief description of the project (max 300 words)
— Note of interest in collaborating with people with visual impairments (max 300 words)
— Project schedule between January 2022 and August 2022
