Sunday, May 6, 2018
1 PM – 4 PM
We are proud to inform participants that Savvy Sessions are now free, which is made possible by Canada Council for the Arts. Without their funding, each Savvy Session workshop would cost anywhere from $80.00 – $250.00 per person. Click here to register!
This workshop is for those who want to know more about self-producing dance or performance events – DIY style!
What does producing your own show involve? How can you minimize the risks when producing your own work? Andrew Tay, co-founder of Wants&Needs danse and producer of the wildly successful events Short&Sweet and Piss in the Pool will take you through the entire process starting at booking a venue right up to the final show day.
Throughout the workshop, participants will examine the benefits and challenges that come along with independently producing an event, and touch on a wide range of issues ranging from front of house duties to subversive marketing strategies.
Andrew Tay was born in Windsor Ontario where he attended the Walkerville Centre for the Creative Arts. Since finishing his B.F.A in contemporary dance at Concordia University, Andrew has presented his work in dance venues and festivals across North America and Europe. His work has appeared in films, installations and multi media projects for companies such as Moment Factory, Bravo! and Dpt. [Read Andrew’s full bio here…]
