Danse Danse participates financially in new dance pieces by offering co-productions to artists who present their works in one of its regular seasons. Since 2007, Danse Danse has co-produced close to 20 new works.
"It was the luxury of having time. If asked what, in my opinion, is the most important aspect of the creative process, my answer would simply be time. Being able to spend time working with the dancers, with collaborators, spending time in the venue creating the lighting design and getting a better feel for the space, for the rhythm of a piece. And that is precisely what Danse Danse and all the partners involved in producing Paradoxe Mélodie so generously gave me. They gave me time, an ephemeral and intangible but very precious gift."
Danièle Desnoyers, choreographer, Le Carré des Lombes
"Having the support of an organization like Danse Danse is one of the best things a young creator can ask for. The Carte Blanchecreation residency at the Segal Center allowed me to distill and develop the ideas I wanted to bring forth in my new work, Quotient Empirique. The opportunity to share unfinished work in an informal setting (months before our premiere at the Cinquième Salle) helped solidify my vision and direction for the piece."
Victor Quijada, choreographer and dancer, RUBBERBANDance Group
"Choreography is a fragile thing that requires time and support in order to ta ke shape and fully grow and develop. Many thanks to Danse Danse for providing crucial support to La Otra Orilla!"
