International Presenters Program organized by Fall For Dance North in partnership with Dancemakers

The IPP is an industry-specific program which runs parallel to our Mainstage festival in Toronto, Canada, consisting of a series of daytime short-form and full-length showcases as well as networking events. Access to see IPP showcases and attend networking events is intended for industry professionals and is by invitation only.

The FFDN IPP is:
- a platform for Toronto and Ontario based artists and companies to showcase tour-ready works to presenters/ programmers from across Canada and abroad,
- an opportunity to connect artists with presenters/programmers, increasing artists’ visibility and building contacts in the industry,
- a chance for international presenters/programmers to discover Canadian dance artists, and
- an opportunity for presenters/programmers to network and catch up with one another.

This year, attending presenters will get to see FfDN’s main stage performances as well as select short-form and full-length showcases featuring tour-ready works from Toronto and Ontario based artists. FfDN showcases will mostly be performed at IPP’s main hub the Harbourfront Centre, and are curated by the artistic leadership of FfDN with input from the IPP Artistic Advisory Committee. - FfDN
