Essence of Embodiment is curated by Iman Louis-Jeune, one of the curatorial dance fellows at Smush Gallery '20-21 and a dance-filmmaker herself. She actively works to uplift and engage in work that is cathartic rather than escapist.

Call for Applications PACAP 5, curatorship by João Fiadeiro (Lisbon, Portugal)

Eligibility:

PACAP 5 - Performing Arts Advanced Programme
Not knowing together
- 2021/22
Curatorship by João Fiadeiro in collaboration with Márcia Lança, Carolina Campos and Daniel Pizamiglio.

Applications for the next edition of PACAP - Performing Arts Advanced Programme are now open.
The fifth edition of the Performing Arts Advanced Programme is curated by João Fiadeiro, in collaboration with Márcia Lança, Carolina Campos and Daniel Pizamiglio.
This advanced training course will run from September 6, 2021 to July 30, 2022 and is aimed for dancers, choreographers, performers and other artists with practices related to performance, body and movement.

\\\\\ INTRODUCTION /////
“PACAP 5’s programming will aim to provide a diverse and non linear approach towards artistic research, employing as reference the study and experimentation of improvisation through Real Time Composition (bloc I); collaborative practices starting from a shared question (bloc II); and practices of individual research for each participant (bloc III). Depending on their interests and availability, participants will be able to opt for a 3, 6 or 9 month course. In order to do the second and third blocs participants must attend the previous ones. The number of participants will decrease as the course progresses: 24 in the first bloc, 16 in the second and 8 in the third and final one, thereby establishing different intensities and ways of involvement with the different research practices of decision, collaboration and creation proposed within the course.
João Fiadeiro and some members of the Atelier RE.AL Collective (Márcia Lança, Carolina Campos, Daniel Pizamiglio and Ivan Haidar) will be present during the entire duration of the course in order to replicate the laboratorial practice that has always characterized our activity. This aims to produce a sense of continuity between blocs and create the condition to deepen the research experience, which would be difficult to implement if the course were structured around a more fragmented and punctual participation of external guests. Regardless, running parallel to a more constant relationship with the Atelier RE.AL Collective we will invite artists and researchers to direct occasional workshops associated with the subjects being explored in each bloc. With these invitations we aim to create a critical distance with regards to our practice, to tune in to other ways of thinking-doing artistic research and generate some breathing room between the cycles.” – Curatorial Team

\\\\\ TARGET AUDIENCE /////
The course is aimed at dancers, choreographers, performers and other artists whose practices relate to performance, body and movement. Applicants should position themselves as peers and not students and see artistic creation as a space of research through art, meaning a platform for the exploration of processes of correlation, collaboration and decision in an environment that does not distinguish between theory and practice and promotes permeability between subjects, thereby regarding the work of art as a consequence of a process and not as its end.

\\\\\ PROGRAM TIMELINE /////
Bloc I - Study, experimentation and practice of Real Time Composition
: September 6 until December 4, 2021
Bloc II - Collaboration processes based on a shared question: January 17 until April 16, 2022
Bloc III - Individual investigation processes of each participant: April 26 until July 30, 2022

\\\\\ ARTISTS AND INVITED INTERVENIENTS /////
