Artistic Director Jennifer Mascall:
"Being a practising artist while raising children is difficult. Canadian dance is in the midst of a baby boom. I read this as a crossed threshold. The dance artist's identity has arrived as a fullblooded citizen. The next steps are to ensure maternity benefits, develop day cares, and salary levels that can afford those costs. Knowing some of the parenting/ art practice hazards i want to support the artists that are keeping active careers alive while pursuing a healthy family life. BLOOM kids is continuing this conversation."
Bloom Residencies provide creators with studio space, colleagues, The Choreographic Toolkit led by Jennifer Mascall and an opportunity to work with her as your editor. The resulting short works-in-progress are presented to an informal audience, accompanied by a selection of teas curated by a Tea Sommelier, and a comic commentary, in two public showings:
5PM Tuesday October 2 and October 9, 2018 @ MascallDance, 1130 Jervis, Vancouver
The artist pays a fee of $100, reimbursed after the final performance through a percentage of the box office. Video of the work is available. Editing can be negotiated separately.
