2013 Faits d'Hiver Festival, Paris
19 February 2013 - 20 February 2013
Dancehouse and micadanses, in association with the Keir Foundation, presented Matthew Day and Sandra Parker as part of the 2013 Faits d'Hiver Festival edition in Paris.
This tour was a first step of a multi-folded partnership that Dancehouse will develop in the coming years, with another like-minded house of dance in Paris, micadanses. micadanses represents the independent dance sector in the Paris region and supports the dance makers through a vast program of residencies, training, performance, as well as through the Faits d'Hiver festival. Running over a month, it is one of the most important dance festivals in Paris, with a program hosted by several venues all over the city. The festival has built its European reputation on the quality of its program, driven by the notion of authorship, and the audacious choice of artists, often introduced as new talent in the French landscape.
Part of Dancehouse's new program, this initiative kicked off Dancehouse International, a collaboration program underpinned by the conviction that nothing is more inspiring and enriching for an artist than mobility and connectivity to wider contexts/networks/territories and audiences. With Dancehouse International, we seek to develop strategic, sustainable and meaningful presenting partnerships with like-minded organisations. Dancehouse thus supports selected Australian choreographers through carefully targeted networking opportunities and tailored showcase presentations. With this program, we aim to promote and introduce independent Australian dance to international presenters who ignore the vibrancy of this sector. Dancehouse is thus a facilitator of international opportunities, an advocate for the distribution of the Australian independent dance works and a connecting gate between artists and new audiences.
