Overview

This six-day online workshop brings together emerging choreographers interested in broadening their understanding of choreographic thinking, and mid-career makers looking to refresh their practice in an environment of shared learning.

The goal of the workshop is to bring our intuitive knowledge and curiosity into an easy dialogue with our critical minds.

We will work in a spirit of rigour that makes space for lightness, play and empathy, while acknowledging the realities of the global pandemic and the intense debate taking place today around social justice issues. We will share our daily work with the group, giving and receiving thoughtful and mutually supportive feedback.

Creative Practice for Contemporary Dance will be guided by veteran choreographer and mentor Christopher House, formerly of Toronto Dance Theatre, with guest faculty.

What Does the Program Offer?
Taking advantage of both the restrictions and benefits of online art making, we will examine choreography as a continuum of actions, tactics and personal values that can be shared and developed by both choreographers and performers. All participants will compose and perform on a daily basis, working quickly and intuitively, and using the unique features of our current living situations to celebrate the artistic potential of limitations. 
The program will make space for broader discussion on such as the ethics of representation; the pressure to innovate; the traps of self-sabotage; sharing authorship; and the social and political questions of this extraordinary moment in time.  

We will refer to an evolving list of compositional considerations derived from disciplines such as cinema, music, architecture, literature, visual art, theatre, physics, biology and dance; participants are invited to add to and personalize this list in support of their own practice. 

Areas of Focus will include:

- Enhancing Specificity
- Editing and Distillation
- Adaptation and Remix
- Working With Found Materials
- Developing Written Scores
- Choreographing with Objects
- Relationships with Sound and Light
- Foreground/ Background: Space as Poetry
- Modes of Counterpoint
- Expansion within Limits
- Addressing Anticipation
- Framing, Mapping and Navigating Form
- Collaboration and Directing
- Redefining Virtuosity
 
A special online Resource Hub will serve as a place to share materials and collect questions and further observations on these and other topics. Participants will be encouraged to organize one-on-one or smaller group dialogues outside of the official meeting hours and to take advantage of the materials in the Resource Hub. The program Director will be available for individual appointments throughout the workshop.

Who Should Apply
This program is for emerging choreographers and performance-makers who are interested in increasing their compositional awareness and expanding their definition of dance, and for established movement artists looking to refresh their practice and reassess their assumptions. 

The program is open to artists worldwide, inclusive of all gender identities, sexual orientations, race, creed, age, national origin, economic positions, or physical or mental abilities. ASL interpretation will be available for Deaf artists.

Participants must be able to commit to being present for the full duration of the workshop and be available for a thirty-minute conversation with lead faculty member Christopher House in advance.

*Scholarship of 100% of tuition fees will be awarded to all successful applicants.

Eligibility:

Selection of performances for Opera Prima Festival XVII Rovigo, 05 / 12 september 2021

CALL FOR ENTRIES “OPERA PRIMA 2021”

The call is opened to single artists or emerging and independent professional companies that work with professional purposes in the field of contemporary theatre, dance and performing arts.

DEADLINE: 28th MARCH 2021

PREMISES

In 2018, nine years after its last edition, Opera Prima Festival was realized once again in Rovigo.
The Festival is organized by Association Festival Opera Prima ets in collaboration with Teatro del Lemming and the Culture Department of the Municipality of Rovigo and with the support of Cassa di Risparmio di Padova e Rovigo Foundation and of the Italian Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
Born in Rovigo in 1994 under the artistic direction of Teatro del Lemming, Festival Opera Prima became immediately an event able to lead to critical attention a new theatrical generation that, in the 90s, was completely excluded from the Italian theatre scene. OPERA PRIMA became an "home" and a reference point for this generation, that soon proclaimed itself “Generation of the Invisible Theatres”. The Festival was really important to support those artists stand out. In recognition of this activity, in 1996 the Festival was the winner of the UBU "Giuseppe Bartolucci" prize, awarded by a jury led by the critic Franco Quadri.
Coherently with its history, this new edition of Opera Prima wants to host and enhance the multiplicity of trends and researches in the contemporary theatre scene.
It also wants to become a bridge between different theatrical generations: in addition to the performances selected by this call, every year there will be four important artists or European historical theatre groups, that have to invited to the festival an unknown young artist or an unknown young group.

OBJECT OF THE CALL

This call for entries is opened to national and international groups or artists that practice experimental theatre.
EXPERIMENTAL THEATRE is the proposal of a work that really experiments with the dramaturgy (interpreted as scenic composition), the actor, the spectator and the scenic space.
In other words, experimental theatre is all that unconventional theatre pursuing:
the autonomy of scenic language from a written play; the redefinition of the scenic space; the reformulation of the role and the gaze of the spectator; an original actors' training; a link that connects the actors to the project of the company.

PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS

The call is opened to Italian and international individuals or groups of professional theatre and performing arts, structured in any legal form that allows them to fulfill the administrative and bureaucratic practices necessary to realize their performance.
Only artistic projects that realize an experimentation with scenic languages, according to the points mentioned above, are eligible for selection. Amateur works, drama theater and performances of entertainment won’t be selected.

The Festival commission selects both original works that have not been yet performed, as well as works that have already debut, but which have not had an adequate circulation and / or visibility. It is advisable to submit works no longer than 60 minutes.

CONDITIONS

The selected performances are going to be included in the 2021 edition of Festival Opera Prima.
All expenses and practices concerning organization, communication, staff, promotion of the event will be in charge of the organization of the Festival.
At each selected company will be paid, after the presentation of an invoice, a fee that has to be agreed and will be guaranteed the possibility of lodging at an affiliated guest house (just for the people working in the performance).

CALENDAR AND PLACE OF PERFORMANCE

All the performances are going to be realized in Rovigo inside the venues used by the Festival from the 05th to the 12th September 2021. It is possible to realize performances also in unconventional locations and outdoor. The artistic direction can ask to the selected company to realize more replies of the performance.

Improbable Talks

Share

City:

Eligibility:

During 2020 we actively engaged in exchanges with fellow creatives in order to connect and share our ideas and experiences. For 2021 we are ready to create and develop strategies for open collaboration where connecting, linking, exchanging and manifesting will be the core of a participative project.

As seen in the survey's results, the main motivators for our participants were a personal sense of satisfaction, as well as the possibility of exchange; we want to develop this further and thought of starting with the most basic, kind of still stereotyped yet meaningful exchanging method, which is that of talking. We want to invite you to participate in what we've named "Improbable Talks" because they are somehow random, with unknown yet likely enough, really interesting matches from a variety of origins, occupations and views on life.

The dynamics of the talks are as simple as they may: there will be a main topic that can be freely developed by both participants. Co-Founders Abdulnur Akyüz and Mónica Quijano will just be moderators and in charge of the good functioning of the talk, as well as translations.

The topic will deal with our core focuses on IDENTITY (AS BUILT WITH OTHERS), CREATION AND RESISTANCE. And it can be developed from the perspectives each participant thought was the leading one to answer to "Migrations" survey; anyhow there are no limitations, we want these to be open and reflective.

Check our I.D portfolio*, so you can take an in-depth look to this upcoming project that will be focused on the narratives, content development and circulation of stage 3 from April 2021 on.

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 /////
