CAPSULE Call for submissions: A new Video Dance Series

CAPSULE is an opportunity to join Canadian Professional Dance Artists on the NAC’s Virtual Stage

CAPSULE is a celebration of video creations by the Canadian dance milieu who have sustained their professional practice over the last year—a capsule of time— through the production of short films. Professional dance artists are invited to submit their videos as of Feb 15, 2021.

NAC Dance is honoured to partner with F-O-R-M (Festival of Recorded Movement) and Dumb Instrument Dance, on this exciting new initiative.

CAPSULE aims at supporting professional dance artists by providing them with a nation-wide digital platform to share their work with audiences, even as the performing arts sector continues to face unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Launching later this spring to the public, the CAPSULE video series will cultivate a national video hub, hosted on the NAC website, where works can be in conversation with each other, enjoy a broad dissemination and be a source of discovery for audiences across the country and around the world.

CAPSULE will be accepting short video submissions from professional dance artists of all backgrounds and abilities until March 5th, 2021 - 17:00 EST. The CAPSULE video series will be curated by an independent selection committee.

The complete list of submission criteria is available online.
