Centrale Fies, Località Fies 1 Dro (TN), Italy

Created in 2013 by Centrale Fies, in collaboration with Viafarini, LIVE WORKS - Free School of Performance is a platform dedicated to live contemporary practices that contribute to deepening and broadening the idea of performance, following the current evolution of performance and its styles.
In times of continuous change Centrale Fies and the curatorial team of LIVE WORKS add two important news to the Call of this edition.

6 artists will be selected and each artist will have:

an annual fellowship of € 3,000.00

Kick Off Seminar in the dates 10-13 June 2021, during Live Works Summit 2021*

a 15 day individal residency at Centrale Fies

a residency (optional) in an international partner structure

a collective residency together with all the selected artists, at Centrale Fies, in the summer 2022

in the frame of Live Works Summit 2022 LIVE WORKS – Free School of Performance

The open call LIVE WORKS includes creative residency periods for the selected projects. LIVE WORKS sees performance as a work space, and as an instrument and cultural exercise. Starting from the notion of performance in the visual art practice, the project is unique in its particular attention to hybrid research, underlining the openness and fluidity of performance, its social and political implications and its level of public understandability.

The announcement is open to a wide range of performative actions, also including sound and new media arts, text-based performances, lecture performances, multimedia storytelling, choreographic practices, relational and workshop-based projects, and other projects questioning the idea of performativity beyond the body.

Artists and professionals from any geographic location and with no limits on age can enter the announcement, as individuals or in groups, with a single project. The open call only accepts unpublished or long-term projects that need to be developed and/or concluded, for which participation would represent an evolution of the project or it’s final chapter.

The production of the performance projects during the residency will be supported by diverse types of curatorship, from theoretical to technical development, a Free School of Performance with studio visit, critical session and reading group. During the residency phase, Centrale Fies will provide a production and curatorial staff to assist the artists as they develop the selected projects.

For the two residencies at Centrale Fies, Centrale Fies covers the travel costs to reach Centrale Fies, food and accommodation for the two residency periods.
The budget of € 3.000,00 will be guaranteed even if the programme changes the form for sanitary emergency reasons.

The performances produced will be presented at Centrale Fies in summer 2022, during the second edition of Live Works Summit 2022. On this occasion the projects will be discussed by a board of international professionals, working for festivals, institutions, residencies and production programs that sustain and produce research in performance.

During each evening a program of established guest artists will be presented alongside the projects of the 6 Live Works artists.

LIVE WORKS Vol.8

OPEN CALL

a project by Centrale Fies

deadline 30th April 2020

curated by Barbara Boninsegna and Simone Frangi
with Mentor 2020 Krystel Khoury

 

Since its creation, Live Works has been conceived as a gathering of living bodies as well as a moment of strong proximity allowing forms of collective intelligence and commons of competences to emerge.

The current sanitary crisis imposes physical distancing upon us and creates deep uncertainty in how to imagine our futures together and the shape this togetherness could eventually take. 

In this evolving situation, Centrale Fies cannot be sure whether Live Works will be able to exist in its original form in July 2020 or if it will have to manifest itself differently. 

In response to the precariousness of our shared condition and out of the will to take responsibilities towards the artists who have been applying to Live Works Vol. 8, the curatorial team has decided to pursue the preparation of the forthcoming eighth edition of the program, baring in mind the potential need of rethinking the boundaries of its format. 

The deadline for applying to Live Works is therefore extended till 30th April 2020. 

The selected artists will be notified by the end of May and will be taking part actively in discussing with the curatorial team the eventual transformations Live Works Vol. 8 will have to go through in case enacting a collective experience this summer becomes impossible.

According to the future possibilities of our mobility and bodily co-existence, the selected artists and the curators will find together the best ways to develop Live Works Vol. 8, its research and production residency, its free school featuring critical and feedback sessions as well as its live program. 

Barbara Boninsegna, Simone Frangi, Krystel Khoury

Prizes Details: 

For each selected project will be awarded a budget of € 1.500,00: € 1.000,00 of this budget will be used for the production of the performance, € 500,00 will be assigned as a fee for the artistic work.

Centrale Fies covers the travel costs to reach Centrale Fies (maximum of € 500,00 per project) and will provide accommodation and food services for the whole residency period.
The budget of € 1.500,00 will be entirely corresponded at the beginning of the residency: all the information will be send after the selection announcement.
