Call for submissions | Behaviour Swarm: Exploring Performative Practices

Share

Overview

Imagine this residency as a hive of inventors, continuously searching for ways to make each other laugh and permuting every facet of reality. Performance artists, dancers, escapees from the theatre, experimental comedians, abstract clowns, and visual artists who have way too much energy for their own good — we invite you to this hive to exaggerate life to its fullest!  

Led by Michael Portnoy and Kira Nova, Behaviour Swarm will explore a series of different modules to continuously fracture your sense of self; behaviour, speech, ideas, your relation to your body, others, objects, and your environment.  We’ll use theatre, dance, and performance techniques to develop your tools for inventiveness, high-level nonsense, slapstick, presence, expressivity, and intuition. Participants will form a company of sorts — a collective organism functioning at times perfectly as a group while growing strength in their own individual work.  

What does the program offer?

This residency offers the opportunity for visual artists to hone their performative skills, receive critical feedback, and grow their performance based practice. The program will be collaborative, but will also provide time and space to develop individual work. Activities will include workshops exploring movement, physical theatre, and improvisational training techniques, as well as riff sessions and performance nights. 

What length of residency is available?

This program is designed for participation over the entire period. Variable dates will not be considered.

Who should apply?

This residency is for visual artists with a focus on performative practices, an exhibition/publication record, who have completed formal training in visual arts at the post-secondary level, or equivalent experience and recognition from their peers. Collaborative groups of no more than two people are welcome to apply.

*Some additional fees may apply.

Dates: June 03 - July 05, 2019

Pietraroia lies in the Matese mountains. It is a small village with lots of interest. Home to a small paleontology museum, the result of an important find, the only intact baby dinosaur fossil found in Europe, it is situated in a stunning mountainous setting. The locals have a strong local food tradition, plus the wine of Campania is consistently prize-winning. Archaeological sites are also nearby, as are many other villages, each with their own character. Pietraroia is situated about two hours north of Naples, making it possible to do daytrips or overnight trips to Naples, Caserta (home of the Caserta Palace), Pompeii, the Amalfi coast, and Benevento. Summertime is the season for festivals where each village celebrates their local food traditions such as cheese or olive oil. The residency program is open but as it is located in the heart of the village in a schoolhouse provided by the municipality, artists working with community-engaged projects are encouraged to apply. Applications are accepted until February 20. For details on the fee and to download the application form, please visit the website.
