With our What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG*) programme for the dance: made in canada/fait au canada Festival, we continue to follow our irresistible urge, one that literally combines serendipity with creativity. WYSIWYG is determined by lottery (subject to minimum professional requirements) not because we were lazy, but because we believe that there is a tremendous value in “letting it happen and allowing”+ and seeing what shakes out. We proudly present five exciting artists from different backgrounds and practices – local heroes to national gems, but all with the same desire to share with you their perspective and experiences.
We hope you will enjoy it.
