News & Press: "Pitch New Works" in Action

Backbone to Embark Multi-country Tour!

Wednesday, December 14, 2016   (0 Comments)

Today we are highlighting Backbone produced by Red Sky Performance/The Banff Centre, recently introduced to ISPA delegates at the Pitch New Works session of the Melbourne 2016 Congress.

Backbone is a cutting-edge new dance and live music creation inspired by the spine of continents. Featuring 8 dancers from Canada, New Zealand and China, Backbone combines contemporary Indigenous dance with athleticism to express its power, formation and spirit. The idea that there is a spine to our continents is an Indigenous concept. It reveals our way of perceiving land as sentient, alive and intact.

We’re thrilled to hear that through ISPA, Backbone will be going to Australia, Poland and the United States! Don’t miss it if it’s coming to a city near you!

With a proven track record for success, ISPA's Pitch New Works program continues to assist works in development with securing touring dates, regional agents, co-commissions, premieres, and more.
