Our mandate, specific to presenting intercultural arts remains, I believe, one of a kind throughout Canada and possibly North America. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Which Canadian dance artist/company would you love to present, either in the short or long term future?
Because we are a pluridisciplinary presenter, I have a list that spans any number of disciplines (and it keeps growing). Pretty high up on that list at this time are The Dancers of Damelahamid.
What is a success story you have experienced, related to either performance or audience engagement?
I am stoked whenever the artist the MAI has presented gets picked up by another presenter, and/or is given the opportunity to present their work outside of the city or province. It is so important that work be given a life beyond a first run.
