OPEN CALL FOR NYC DANCE FILMS & PERFORMANCE

 

As the 50th anniversary of Stonewall approaches, El Sotano Art Space invites New York based dancers to submit work to this open call. We are looking for work that enacts a revolutions through movement and corporality.

 

Considering the first terrain that we inhabit to be our bodies and from this point all actions that seek revolution and to revolt part from. Thinking of the body as a place where one inhabits and insurrection permeates, the body acts as a terrain where resistance leaves its mark.

 

The purpose of this exhibition is to vocalize and show the different ways in which queer communities and queer individuals enact resistance, revolution and rebellion; from their own corporality, individual and community actions, materialities and performativity. Thinking of queer Revolutions as something that starts in the viscera, sweats through the skin and filters into the streets.

FAQs

What kind of performance work are you looking for?

This is a national call out and we are interested in hearing from artists who create theatre, dance or spoken word in their broadest sense and from artists who combine these disciplines. We would like to support the creation of a new piece of work, so it might be just at the idea stage or you might have done some very early stage research or development.

What do you mean by Black artist or Black led company?

We would like to hear from artists and companies who are of African or Caribbean descent or of the African / Caribbean diaspora or of dual heritage. Several of the partners are working on an audience development project to engage these communities in their local area as audiences and we are interested in the potential for engaging these audiences in your work, but your work does not have to be about your heritage or identity or specifically for a Black audience.

What kind of spaces are available for the residencies?

The Everyman studio space is approx 9m wide and between 3 and 6m deep depending on layout. It is a wooden plywood floor on concrete. The studio space at Hawkwood is approximately 9m x 5m and has a wooden floor.
