About

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.

ELAN is an official minority language organization within a country that only recognizes two languages as official. ELAN is located in Tiohtiak:ke, which is the original name for Montreal in Kanien’keha:ka, the language of the Mohawk—also known as Mooniyang, which is the Anishinaabeg name given to the city by the Algonquin. While we are based in this city, our projects have also taken place in many regions across Quebec.
We would also like to acknowledge the important work being done by First Nations to revive the traditional languages of these territories, and their advocacy for the official status of Indigenous languages. Kanien’keha:ka and Anishinaabeg are but two of the original languages of this province, in which English and French are colonial languages. The province that we know as Quebec is an amalgamation of the traditional territories of the Innu and Inuit nations, Algonquian nations, as well as the Mohawk nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Atikamekw, Cree, Inuktitut, and Innu-aimun are also among the many Indigenous languages spoken across Quebec as majority languages, and well before French and English.
