About the Organizer

REAson d’etre dance productions believes in inspiring people through contact dance improvisation and dance/theatre. We create, produce and program dance works on stage and in film. We explore current themes in a manner that enables people to benefit from the enlivening and thought-provoking powers of expression through movement. We tell inter-generational stories that represent the current theme in the world. We strive for a high level of community engagement through classes, jams, and all-level performance opportunities. We believe that every “body” can dance, and we work to increase the accessibility of the dance arts in Canada. Alongside producing professional work, we encourage and support the every day person in becoming artists. REAson d’etre dance productions produces the Contact Dance International Film Festival. The festival was started in 2013 and runs every two years. The festival showcases films from Canada and around the world based on contact improvisation and affiliated forms, featuring both professional dancers/filmmakers as well as emerging filmmakers.
