Queer Identities Open Call

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Themes of identity are highly celebrated amongst the exhibitions at IC Contemporary, and with our close connection to the queer community, ICC would like to showcase more artwork that speaks to queer experiences and identity.

Each year our gallery is going to host a queer exhibit and we want you to be a part of it! This current call is for the group or solo exhibition that explores Queer Identities.

In the past, our Queer Identities exhibit was a survey on the subliminal thought processes many members of the LGBTQIA+ community experience while living in a world that revolves around heteronormativity. It mainly focuses on queer experiences of minority stress and the repercussions of the innate pressure for them to follow feminine and masculine norms.

This theme will continue into 2021’s exhibition, however work that aims to combat or go beyond binary hegemonic representations of gender roles and/or identity will be given preference. That being said, we do wish to limit the experiences displayed here, therefore all queer experiences are welcome to be submitted and will be considered. All submissions will also be automatically considered for our Artist of the Month highlights.

This show provides a space for Queer Artists to interpret their own experiences on being Queer and how they choose to identify themselves, developing these thoughts into physical manifestations through any preferred medium. It also provides a platform for our stories to be seen and heard, so submit any paintings, drawings, film, poetry, performance, or sculpture and have your stories shared with the hundreds of people who will visit this exhibition.

Creative Practice for Contemporary Dance Online 2021

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

Overview

This six-day online workshop brings together emerging choreographers interested in broadening their understanding of choreographic thinking, and mid-career makers looking to refresh their practice in an environment of shared learning.

The goal of the workshop is to bring our intuitive knowledge and curiosity into an easy dialogue with our critical minds.

We will work in a spirit of rigour that makes space for lightness, play and empathy, while acknowledging the realities of the global pandemic and the intense debate taking place today around social justice issues. We will share our daily work with the group, giving and receiving thoughtful and mutually supportive feedback.

Creative Practice for Contemporary Dance will be guided by veteran choreographer and mentor Christopher House, formerly of Toronto Dance Theatre, with guest faculty.

What Does the Program Offer?
Taking advantage of both the restrictions and benefits of online art making, we will examine choreography as a continuum of actions, tactics and personal values that can be shared and developed by both choreographers and performers. All participants will compose and perform on a daily basis, working quickly and intuitively, and using the unique features of our current living situations to celebrate the artistic potential of limitations. 
The program will make space for broader discussion on such as the ethics of representation; the pressure to innovate; the traps of self-sabotage; sharing authorship; and the social and political questions of this extraordinary moment in time.  

We will refer to an evolving list of compositional considerations derived from disciplines such as cinema, music, architecture, literature, visual art, theatre, physics, biology and dance; participants are invited to add to and personalize this list in support of their own practice. 

Areas of Focus will include:

- Enhancing Specificity
- Editing and Distillation
- Adaptation and Remix
- Working With Found Materials
- Developing Written Scores
- Choreographing with Objects
- Relationships with Sound and Light
- Foreground/ Background: Space as Poetry
- Modes of Counterpoint
- Expansion within Limits
- Addressing Anticipation
- Framing, Mapping and Navigating Form
- Collaboration and Directing
- Redefining Virtuosity
 
A special online Resource Hub will serve as a place to share materials and collect questions and further observations on these and other topics. Participants will be encouraged to organize one-on-one or smaller group dialogues outside of the official meeting hours and to take advantage of the materials in the Resource Hub. The program Director will be available for individual appointments throughout the workshop.

Who Should Apply
This program is for emerging choreographers and performance-makers who are interested in increasing their compositional awareness and expanding their definition of dance, and for established movement artists looking to refresh their practice and reassess their assumptions. 

The program is open to artists worldwide, inclusive of all gender identities, sexual orientations, race, creed, age, national origin, economic positions, or physical or mental abilities. ASL interpretation will be available for Deaf artists.

Participants must be able to commit to being present for the full duration of the workshop and be available for a thirty-minute conversation with lead faculty member Christopher House in advance.

*Scholarship of 100% of tuition fees will be awarded to all successful applicants.

Program Dates: June 14 - 19, 2021
Application Deadline: May 5, 2021
