The Supreme Task of…
dance: made in canada/fait au canada was created in 2001 in response to the growing need to support mid-market independent dance artists. Performances were held at the old Dancemakers’ Studio from 2001- 2004 and at Winchester Street Theatre from 2004-2008; in 2009 the Betty Oliphant Theatre became our home. In 2009, we presented two Winnipeg based and two Toronto based artists over two weeks. This garnered four Dora Mavor Moore Award nominations and was voted Top Best Dance Series by NOW magazine.
In 2011 d:mic/fac evolved into a repertory festival format with performances running August 11th -14th at the Betty Oliphant Theatre in Toronto, featuring new and existing works by established and emerging choreographers working in Canada.
Since its inception in 2001, d:mic/fac has presented a cross-section of contemporary Canadian dance makers listed here.
