REQUIREMENTS AND DETAILS
With the help of a jury made up of multidisciplinary presenters and representatives of La DSR and RIDEAU, the RIDEAU/PARCOURS DANSE Award was presented on closing night, Friday, November 29 at the Conseil des arts de Montréal. This year, among eleven entrants, Estelle Clareton was the winner with Paysages de Papier.
What is RIDEAU and how does the Award work?
With 170 members throughout Québec and the Canadian Francophonie, RIDEAU brings together 350
theatres and festivals, as well as regional networks working to promote the performing arts.
By allowing artists to meet audiences on stages here and abroad, RIDEAU also contributes to economic and urban development. Its work promotes the establishment of a social and cultural balance between regions.
RIDEAU for presenting
RIDEAU Awards reward innovation, boldness and perseverance in the presenting of the
performing arts. Each year, at the Gala RIDEAU, a major event celebrating the presenting of the
performing arts, the Association professionnelle des diffuseurs de spectacles honours professionals
who demonstrate originality and creativity in bringing artists and audiences together.
The RIDEAU Awards are, for finalists and winners, a recognition by their peers and also provide them with significant local, regional and national exposure, including through print and electronic media.
