NEW - Nyata Nyata - Circuit-Est residencies

Zab Maboungou / Compagnie Danse Nyata Nyata and Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique are partnering to offer three additional creative residencies as part of the Support for artists program.

The selected artists will be offered 30 to 40 hours in the Nyata Nyata studios in the summer of 2021 and a financial contribution to their project.

A true place for the exchange of shapes and cultures, Zab Maboungou/Compagnie Danse Nyata Nyata’s studio has a surface of 1 500 square feet and has a hardwood floor with large windows, without columns and high ceiling.

 

Mentorship

The mentorship program offers the selected choreographers 40 hours of studio time to work on their new creation, including 20 hours with a mentor of their choice. They also receive a financial contribution to their project. Mentorship gives the opportunity to emergent artists to work with experienced artists.

To be considered for a mentorship you must:

  • be an emergent artist;
  • present the potential of a promising artistic development;
  • have a willingness to blossom on an artistic level and demonstrate the significant contribution that a mentorship represents.

Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique will be able to give full support to performers, enabling them to take part in all the advanced training activities of the 2021-2022 season for free. To be considered, you must be a performer engaged in a professional career in dance.
