dance: made in canada/fait au canada (d:mic/fac) is the only Toronto-based biennial
summer festival of contemporary dance. The not-for-profit festival was founded in 2000
by Yvonne Ng under the umbrella of princess productions and since that time, eight
festivals of dance: made in canada/fait au canada (d:mic/fac) have been produced.
This year, we are looking for short dance films (5 minutes maximum) of any dance genre
to showcase in the Betty Oliphant Theatre lobby during the festival (August 14-17,
2013). As well as exposing your work to the dance: made in canada/fait au canada
audiences, you will receive 1 complimentary ticket to see a program of your choice.
d:mic/fac fills a mid-market niche by presenting culturally-diverse, independent dance
artists. These artists work in a general contemporary genre and are often known for selfpresenting.
Because of its multi-disciplinary nature, d:mic/fac is a excellent choice for
both seasoned art aficionados as well as new dance audiences.

The DANCENETTE stage is a welcoming meeting place for all kinds of artists presenting limitless realms of movement expression, experimentation and fusion exploration. Receive feedback about your work, promote an upcoming event or just come and explore. There is no curating process.
