Artistic Director Yvonne Ng, with guest curators Serge Bennathan and Cylla von Tiedemann, have released the trailer for princess productions' biennial dance: made in canada / fait au canada (d:mic/fac) festival, which runs August 14-17 at the Betty Oliphant Theatre in Toronto. Click below to watch!

The 45-second trailer offers a tantalizing glimpse of the exciting programming of the 2013 d:mic/fac, which features some of Canada's most inventive dance creators in three different MainStage Series - Benjamin Kamino (Montreal), William Yong (Toronto), Femmes du Feu (Toronto), Louis Laberge-Côté (Toronto), Gearshifting Performance Works (Winnipeg), Mocean Dance (Halifax), Blue Ceiling Dance (Toronto) - as well as a Late-Night 'What You See is What You Get' Series (with Jamee Valin of Vancouver and Toronto-based artists Amy Hampton, Shannon Litzenberger, skindivers Dance Company and Throwdown Collective). Arts Encounters, a visual art exhibit, community line dance, live video dance installation and other happenings round out the festival.

The d:mic/fac MainStage Series showcases a national spectrum of seven cutting-edge contemporary dance works from Halifax, Montreal, Toronto and Winnipeg, performed by 16 artists. Three world premieres and three Toronto premieres (and one remount) bounce between pure dance and interpreting conceptual ideas as varied artists explore their relationship to the world around them.

- BENNATHAN SERIES:
Wednesday, August 14, 7pm | Thursday, August 15, 9pm | Saturday, August 17, 7pm

Serge Bennathan, choreographer and Artistic Director of Vancouver's Les Productions Figlio, chose to juxtapose two distinct styles - one primal and unrestrained, the other controlled and technology-driven - but each tied to a personal belief/philosophy.

o TORONTO PREMIERE. The dynamic Benjamin Kamino / do what you can (Montreal, Quebec) performs an excerpt from Nudity. Desire. His solo embodies the theological framework of the "first nude" or "fall" as a potential origin of language and birthplace of desire as explored by contemporary philosophers Giorgio Agamben, Slavoj _i_ek and Erik Peterson.

o WORLD PREMIERE. Acclaimed choreographer/dancer William Yong (Toronto, Ontario) takes us to imaginary inner worlds through a fusion of biology and technology in his solo that utilizes real time technologies to create interactive visuals and sounds initiated by movement from the human body.

- MORRISON / NG SERIES:
Wednesday, August 14, 9pm | Friday, August 16, 7pm | Saturday, August 17, 2pm

Named after the late, great lighting designer David Morrison, this series is curated by princess productions' Artistic Director Yvonne Ng who selected her artists for their unique approaches to understanding how we find reflections of ourselves in the outside world.
