Canadian Music Centre / Atlantic Moves partnership

September 9, 2011 | It is with great pleasure that the APA announces an exciting partnership with the Canadian Music Centre at our upcoming conference, Contact East. The Canadian Music Centre will be sponsoring a contemporary dance performance at the Atlantic Moves launch on Sunday, October 2nd 1:30pm at the Harbourfront Theatre. The performance is made possible through the New Music in New Places program. The Canadian Music Centre gratefully acknowledges the support of The SOCAN Foundation and the Government of Canada through the Canada Music Fund. The launch event will feature words from APA, speeches from our funders, and a formal announcement of the Atlantic Moves participants.

The APA and the CMC gratefully acknowledges the support of its funders.

The performance, titled "Time Travellers" will feature Halifax-based contemporary dancer Susanne Chui and percussionist Doug Cameron. Time Travellers is a dynamic collage of movement, sound and text that explores the concept of time - from its celestial beginnings, through mechanical incarnations and into the fast pace of modern society.

Time Travellers was created with support from the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage.

About New Music in New Places

New Music in New Places is a national Canadian Music Centre project, which puts the focus on new Canadian music by presenting it in new or unusual venues across the country. So far, close to forty events have taken place in venues such as hotels, shopping malls and office buildings, industrial sites, a winery and a prison. The Canadian Music Centre gratefully acknowledges the support of the SOCAN Foundation and the Government of Canada through the Canada Music Fund.
