Fall For Dance North: The Flip Side | Industry
 

Industry

Since 2017, Fall for Dance North has been a hub for local, national and international presenters to engage with Canadian dancemakers and presenters at our International Presenters Program (IPP).


The program has advanced the careers of Ontario artists whose showcases at the IPP have led to appearances at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Holland Dance Festival, Guelph Dance Festival, and beyond. The program has enabled Ontario based dance companies such as Peggy Baker Dance Projects', Red Sky Performance, and Rock Bottom Movement to develop and expand their national and international touring opportunities. Between 2017-2019, three editions of the IPP were supported by Ontario Arts Council, Canada Council for the Arts and the Government of Canada, through the Department of Canadian Heritage, and welcomed approximately 150 national and international festival and theatre programmers. Together with FFDN's mainstage performances and industry specific showcases, 75+ works were featured.

Currently the IPP is being reimagined for the 8th edition of FFDN in October 2022 to focus on showcasing artists from across Canada. Until then, we encourage global arts presenters to reach out to us, to exchange information and ideas. We're also open to expressions of interest for collaborative work on future IPPs and are happy to discuss our experiences presenting our 6th edition: The Flip Side from Sept. 29 – Oct. 25, which featured 12 diverse live and digital programs.
