Designed to address the lack of critical writing specializing in dance, this project brings together 4 accomplished critics ( a mix of anglophone and francophone) as Authors in Residence at the CCOV. Over the course of the year the CCOV will facilitate encounters between the resident writers and the artists implicated in the CCOV programming, as well as offer space to write, and resources to disseminate their work. The articles, theoretical discourse, and critical thinking around dance generated from the project will be shared with the community through social media and a unique print document to be published at the end of the residency. Les auteurs en résidence is meant to valorize this essential part of our discipline and stimulate exciting exchanges between writers, artists and the general public.
The authors are : James Oscar, Véronique Hudon, Tawny Andersen, Jessie Mill
