Emergency Proposal Sample

1. Anna Pavlova

123 Dance Crescent

Peterborough, ON  K9H L0L

705.555.1234

MyEmail@yaddayadda.com

 2. Take Them (tentative title)

 3. 10 minutes

 4. Choreographer: me; performers: me, and another performer tba.  Might try having live music; I don’t know yet.

 5. Artist Statement:

I am a performer and writer.  I’ve created and co-created quite a number of performance pieces: sometimes solos on myself, sometimes on other people, sometimes in collaboration with other dance artists, non-dancers, designers, musicians, visual artists.  This project is important to me because it will be the first time I’ve created performance material with the starting point of one of my prose works.  I propose to take a short passage from my second novel, Wrecked Upon This Shore, which came out with Killick Press this month, and use that as a starting point to create a duet with a yet-to-be-determined artist and myself.  (I had a performer lined up, but due to very good personal reasons he has had to withdraw, as of last night.)  I do not think that text will form a part of the final piece, although it might.  Right now I think it will be a strictly movement piece.  It furthers my work in a number of ways: I am interested in mining a scene from one of my novels and giving it physical life, and it’s good to keep exercising that choreographic muscle.

 6. Project Description:

I see Take Them as a movement piece about a mother and son.  At present I know the passage from the novel I want to use, and think I will assign gestures to words as a starting point, but it will grow from there.  I think I will have a table and chair on stage.  I like the idea of live music but that part of the piece hasn’t come clear to me yet; it will.  The theme of the work is suicide and a particular mother-son relationship (it is the mother who is suicidal).  I will create as much of the choreography myself as I can, and bring the other performer in to set things on him and work out the duet aspects (particularly lifts, etc).  I will start work on it in January and probably work twice a week, 2-3 hours at a time.

 7. CV – please see attached.

 8. I will ask Ryan Kerr and Anne Ryan to look at the piece for me.

 

Emmanuel Jouthe workshop

Public Energy presents a FREE Workshop and Performance Experience with Emmanuel Jouthe, artist in residence

•    DO YOU HAVE SOME DANCE TRAINING?
•    DO YOU WANT TO LEARN FROM ONE OF CANADA’S LEADING CHOREOGRAPHERS,
AND PERFORM IN ONE OF HIS WORKS?

IF YOU ANSWERED YES, THEN THIS PROJECT COULD BE FOR YOU!

Watch excerpts of Emmanuel's community dance work, Scan.
 

Emmanuel Jouthe is a Montreal-based contemporary dance choreographer. As an independent dancer, Jouthe has worked with many renowned choreographers.  He co-founded his company Danse Carpe Diem in 1995.   Jouthe’s unique style is known for combining vivid energy and dramatic intensity, functional and poetic movement. Danse Carpe Diem also has an educational mission: Emmanuel Jouthe frequently teaches workshops for children and youth.

Scan is a choregraphy Jouthe sets anew on local dancers in every community he visits with his full-length work Cinq humeurs.  Scan is a way to experiment with the creative process in the context of community.  Participants will be immersed in Jouthe’s unique vision of dance.

For participants, the challenge will be to develop their individual creative impulse while remaining aware of and in synchronicity with the group. This will not be a series of technical classes leading to a single aesthetic.  The performance will reflect the strength and beauty of a group of people working in unison, interwoven with explosions of ephemeral dances where one, two, or more dancers fill a momentarily empty space.

Jouthe and the other Danse Carpe Diem artists intend the workshop to be a collaborative relationship with community participants.  Says Jouthe, “We understand that this may be some participants’ first contact with « contemporary dance. »  We will encourage participants to create sequences coming from their own training and creative interests. The important thing is that participants open themselves to self-expressivity, rather than remaining attached to the style(s) in which they have been trained. The principal goal of this workshop/performance is to live a group experience that reflects strength, unity and solidarity.”

Dates :  
•    Three rehearsal sessions in the week of January 14-20.  3 hours each, specific dates/times and places tba.
•    Wed, Thurs, March 6 & 7: final reheasals in evening.
•    Friday, March 8: public performance at the Market Hall Theatre.

MORE ABOUT THE REHEARSAL PROCESS

Participants will be working in small separate groups during the week of Jan 14, coming together for the first time on Sunday January 20.

Session 1 :
-    Get in touch with Emmanuel Jouthe’s embodiment technique
-    Experiment and identify the physical potential of the group. Start to learn short dance phrases
-    Experiment with the challenges that the frame of the choreography requires as a group (examples: walking in a straight line, having the responsibility to lead it and be led by it) and as a soloist (get out/in of line).

Session 2 :
-    Continue creation of short dance phrases.  Start to contextualise the piece in space and time
-    Dancers get more familiar with the concept of the piece
-    Dance phrases learned earlier begin to be integrated into the piece.

Session 3 :

-    Finish the creation of dance phrases in groups
-    Finish setting the piece
-    Dance the piece with music and confirm artistic choices.

Session 4 :
Sunday January 20.  All participants, Market Hall:
-    Assemble dance phrases of all four groups together
-    Dance the whole piece.  Memorize.  Clean.

Additional notes :

-    All meetings will start with a short warm-up (around 20 minutes);
-    Because it is a short process, we will focus on creation and interpretation rather than technique.
-    Participants must be available for all rehearsals.
