OFF Showcases are events held in parallel with the official Parcours Danse program, for which DSR offers no technical or logistical support. Nevertheless, DSR wishes to support market development efforts for dance. This means:

  • A mention in the online and print program
  • A mention in the booking system (presenters will have the opportunity to register for OFF Showcases)
  • A list of registered presenters will be available to OFF participants (once registration is confirmed; allow 4 to 6 weeks before the event)

You will have access to the above detailed information in the registration form, under “Services offered by La danse sur les routes du Québec”.

A return on…

The selection process has been conducted in keeping with DSR’s approach to help ensure equity for all artists applying for Parcours Danse. This is why this year’s official selection was made by a peer review panel, supported, when necessary, by peers who are culturally representative or specialized in the form of dance being submitted.
