Time frame:

Start of application period: 01-05-2021

End of application period: 30-06-2021

Location:

████████████, ████-holland, The Netherlands

Exclusions and restrictions:

- Applicants in the field off Counter-technique are excluded
- Artists placed on the foundations blacklist are excluded
- Only 100 artists may apply for the positions
- Applications lacking proper format are inadmissible
- Showreels are inadmissible

Context: For the past year, ████████████ has been able to almost operate unhindered. It is believed that its presence is responsible for worsened conditions for the human dance culture, Given the independent nature of our cultural sector, Existing Special Procedures have limited our behavior, and thus this contingency has been prepared. Given that the Foundation is responsible for the creation of a healthy the independent cultural sector, this project has been authorized by itself.

Methodology: A new team of 20 independent contemporary dance artists are to be attracted, selected, and are to culminate the activity. These can be professional, internships or associates. Also 2 special roles will be created within the project. The script reader and the scapegoat.

The script reader is to follow the script to the letter for the duration of precisely 12 minutes and 03 seconds after which he or she ████████████ ██ █████ █████ ██████ ██████ and remains part of the construct. Within the same period a small group of the most skilled artist are to create a diamond type construct on stage to serve as a buffer for the script reader. A second and third group will slip through in diagonal and line patterns, ██ members are to maintain the moving constructs on stage. 5 remaining members will jump in and out in soloistic, duo, or trio form some of which have to be maintained for longer periods of time. Thereafter, the remaining 5 associate members are to deliberately initiate a Runaround-Loop ██████████, using the diamond construct as the anchor. Once the Runaround-Loop ██████████ is established, the diagonal and line-type constructs are to be piggybacked onto the loop, Once the entire system is assembled and self-sustaining, The whole performance is to be maintained for exactly 67 minutes and 47 seconds. At this point, 20 members of the team are to relinquish control of the construct to the scapegoat, who is to maintain the assemblage of constructs alone. Each of these 20 members is to immediately administer a single bow towards the audience and disappear from stage. The window within is set at 4 seconds, whereafter the scapegoat is to maintain the structure alone for a duration of at least 2 minutes and up to 10 minutes without prompting the audience to applaud.

Nature of production: the whole process of the production will be highly bureaucratic as a critical reflection of the professional world we reside in and will be maintained through the whole project.

Consequences of success: Audience members is unable to react for longer periods of time. unable to process what they just witnessed and needing more time to react. Project is deemed culturally relevant with standing ovations at the 77 minute and 47 second mark, the continuation of the project is guaranteed.

Consequences of failure: Audience members maintain a firm grip on reality, applaud during the scapegoat transfer sequence and the performance is cut short. The performance is unable to convey its message and has to be reworked before continuation is possible. Resources for rework will be unavailable and the project collapses in on itself.

Associated Risks: In order to generate sufficient magnitude, and sufficient number of members, the deliberate use of a Runaround-Loop ██████████is required. if the operation is not completed in a suitably short period of time, the strain on resources might become too heavy. As such, the dancer and associate position’s are strictly voluntary.

The Witching Hour Volume II: A Quaranzine

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Last October, we celebrated some of the most bewitching artists and enchanting works at our first annual The Witching Hour exhibition. I’d love nothing more than to revive such a wicked soirée. However, it is imperative that we prioritize our health and safety while COVID continues to leave heartbreak and devastation in its wake.

Providing artists any opportunity to feature their work is vital. It is vital when many of us feel our art practice serves no substantial purpose. It is vital when we feel the knowledge we have should be that of saving lives rather than shading and color theory. It is vital when our voices feel lost. We need these gentle reminders of the power we have. We give voices to the voiceless. We see, and do, and share what those who cease to be no longer can.

And so, to continue celebrating those who give the silenced a voice, we are proud to present THE WITCHING HOUR VOLUME II: A QUARANZINE.

Zines have long been a vehicle for communicating the unusual//unconventional//unorthodox ideas held by counter-culture dwellers. Their DIY nature and small-scale appearance felt like the perfect form for this exhibition to acclimate. We are seeking artists and artworks that embrace the otherness of the non-hetero//non-cis//non-white//non-male that society has oppressed, cast aside and deemed nefarious.

If you feel like you fit in with the outcasts, we highly encourage you to apply! Each applicant will receive a free copy of the finished zine regardless of whether or not they were accepted. We can’t wait for the chance to see your work!
