We can hardly believe that a year has passed since our first call for proposals last fall.
We're looking forward to reading this year's applications to commission a new work from artists born in 1995, the same year as Nightswimming.
5x25 is open to any kind of performance project: dance, music, interdisciplinary and the deadline is November 15, 2016. For more information on this five year initiative, click here.
Montreal's Rhiannon Collett, our year one commission, is now hard at work on her piece wasp. Over the summer she traveled to Toronto to spend time with Brian, attending Summerworks shows and meeting artists from across Canada.
5x25 has been a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Rhiannon, and also to engage with the work of some remarkable 20-year-old artists from across Canada. This year our applicants must be 21 and we can't wait to see what projects they want to make and what stories they need to tell.
