Dusk Dances is seeking a Lead Curator to program its 2022 season in Withrow Park. Throughout the contract, the Lead Curator will engage in conversations about programming dance works, and the curation of outdoor dance events, alongside Festival Director Sylvie Bouchard, and Michael Caldwell, who curated Dusk Dances in 2018. This project is the pilot phase of an initiative that Dusk Dances plans to implement in 2023 and beyond, to widen conversations about dance curation and to offer opportunities to those who are interested in curating and programming dance.
For this 2022 contract, only applicants from Toronto and the GTA will be considered. No accommodation or per-diem will be provided.
Dusk Dances welcomes and will prioritize hiring a Lead Curator who self-identifies as being part of underrepresented groups including IBPOC, 2SLGBTQIA+, disabled, and/or any other minority.
Sylvie Bouchard, Michael Caldwell, and the Lead Curator will work together to implement Dusk Dance’s JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) policies.
NOTE: The Lead Curator will program three dance works, the fourth piece is a commissioned work that has been in development since 2020 and we look forward to finally presenting this work to a live audience.
