OPERA AND THEATRE IN SEARCH OF ARTISTIC-DIGITAL FORMATS AND REALMS OF EXPERIENCE

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The analogue world offers opera and theatre unlimited possibilities. With performing artists, music and design, the most varied realms of experience can be conjured on an empty stage in the here and now. But what new (virtual) spaces can be explored by incorporating the digital dimension? The Komische Oper Berlin (KOB) and the Berliner Ensemble (BE) are interested in developing artistic formats that merge new technologies with the classical elements, capabilities and resources of theatre and opera.

To this end KOB and BE are calling for proposals, of which the winning submission will be realised as part of the Spielr ume project. The proposals submitted should be artistic projects that create new formats of theatrical experience in a sustainable and innovative way using digital technologies.

Specifically the KOB and BE are seeking formats that combine the analogue and digital sphere while producing a staged narrative work with actors, singers and/or musicians that also incorporates the live theatre experience. The focus is on formats that can be considered hybrids, amalgamating the analogue tools of theatre and opera with new digital technologies. The preference is for large-format artistic projects that can be realised in a way that involves the ensembles of the BE and the KOB. The resulting production does not have to be suitable for the repertoire, but can also be a temporary installation or a one-off event (that does not necessarily have to conform to the usual time frame of a theatre performance). The production can be realised on the premises of the Berliner Ensemble, but public or other spaces are also conceivable locations. Ideally, the format should be accessible to as wide an audience as possible (installations for individuals or small audiences should be avoided if possible). There are no specifications regarding subject matter: a narrative exploration of contemporary issues and material is as acceptable as research projects, the interpretation of classic works or a critique of the technologies applied.

This call for proposals is part of the collaborative project Spielr ume, which is funded by the Digital Culture Programme of the Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation) and by the Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien (Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media).

Prize summary: 
120.00,00€ Production Budget
Prizes Details: 

A production budget of € 120,000 (gross) is available for the winning proposal.
Internal operating costs will be borne by the KOB and the BE as an in-house effort, provided they have been duly prearranged, are the venues themselves (BE indoor, outdoor) including their technical equipment as well as, for example, the involvement of both ensembles (actors, singers, chorus, orchestra), the support of technical personnel, in-house staff and key technology managers, marketing and communications, ticketing.

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Overview
Creation Lab residencies are designed for performing artists and companies worldwide to develop their new work in one or more Banff Centre studio spaces on the land of Sacred Buffalo Guardian Mountain. Creation Lab is a partnered initiative of Performing Arts and Indigenous Arts at Banff Centre. The focus of these self-directed residencies is to offer contemplative and creative exploration in performance spaces. This can include experimentation with choreography, improvisations and sight specific areas. Collaborations with Indigenous artists outside of similar accessibility will also be considered. 

In a collegial campus atmosphere of like-minded artists working in and across a range of disciplines, artists are encouraged this season to propose self-sufficient projects that require no in-studio technical labour or equipment support from Banff Centre staff beyond essential room set-up. Companies are encouraged to travel with all personnel required to handle the work.

A limited number of on-stage technical residencies with local crew support are available.

We are offering the following programs concurrently:

What does the program offer?
As a post-secondary learning environment, Banff Centre offers artists a generous, retreat-style space to experiment and take risk with new work in development. Artists can choose to take advantage of feedback from other members of the community on campus, or shut out distraction and create in solitude. All phases of work in progress are welcome, and there is no expected output from the residency.

Banff Centre provides limited production support for these residencies. Additional technical support may be negotiated when possible. Covid-19 protocols are expected to evolve throughout the season.

Who should apply?
We accept project proposals from individual artists, artistic collectives, and companies of all sizes and at all stages of career. Artists with projects that are at various stages of development are encouraged to apply - whether at the conceptual, creation, development, refinement, or redevelopment stage of a new work.

We invite applications from Indigenous performing artists and arts companies (regionally, nationally, and globally), from a variety of disciplines. This may include Indigenous dancers, theatre makers, circus and clowns, provocateurs, disrupters, advocates pushing the boundaries of their artistic practice, experienced artists, Indigenous artists that serve their community and their collaborators in all performing arts disciplines.

Shorter residencies may be available. Please inquire for details.

Please note: International participants are welcome to apply to on-campus programs that start after January 1, 2022. Banff Centre has opted into the Government of Alberta's Restriction Exemption Program; please see our website for full details on COVID-19 protocols and vaccination requirements.

Overview
In partnership with Performing Arts, Indigenous Arts Creation Lab residencies are designed for Indigenous Performing Arts artists, collectives or companies with a regional, national and global focus to develop the physical creation phase of their new work on the territory of Sacred Buffalo Guardian Mountain. The focus of these self-directed residencies is to offer contemplative and creative exploration in performance spaces. This can include experimentation with choreography, improvisations and sight specific areas. Collaborations with Indigenous artists outside of similar accessibility will also be considered.

A limited number of on-stage technical residencies with local crew support will be available in the Spring 2022 block. 

Artists may apply to reside for one, two or three weeks, and may indicate their preferred dates. Demand is typically high for this residency, and therefore the ability to consider three-week visits, particularly for larger companies, is limited.

What does the program offer?

This residency offers a range of workspaces and facilities depending on participants' needs and availability, typically in Banff Centre’s Music & Sound Building, the Performing Arts and Learning Complex, and/or the Kinnear Centre for Creativity & innovation. 

Banff Centre provides limited production support for these residencies. Additional technical support may be negotiated when possible. Covid-19 protocols are expected to evolve throughout the season.

Indigenous Playwrights Nest - Fall 2021

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Overview

The Indigenous Playwrights Nest is a two week residency that offers Indigenous playwrights an inspiring environmental workspace to write their plays surrounded by nature in the Leighton Artists Studios. The Indigenous Playwrights Nest is designed to offer support and space for new works in various stages of dramaturgical development. This residency includes revisiting textual work on plays that have had some performance life but are still in process of finalizing, as well as open to new works in development.

Writers will be on campus, while actors will be hired to do online-only readings in alignment with playwrights writing needs. 

What does the program offer?

This self-guided residency will support the development and creation of a new work by the Indigenous writer(s) working in theatre by providing actors, space, and resources for Indigenous writers to further their career and scripts that have exceptional merit and high impact. The program also offers the inclusion of Treaty 7 and area knowledge keepers and Elders to witness and to provide wisdom that will enhance community engagement in the project, and be a resource to the performers, if requested and appropriate. On campus, the program creates dedicated space and time away from home to add to the depth and breadth of the work in development.

Who should apply?

Indigenous artists in Canada who have a play in development or are creating a new work are encouraged to apply.

As we re-open campus and welcome artists back to programming in a safe and mindful way, we have made the difficult decision to restrict recruitment for on-campus programs to those currently residing in Canada.  We continue to monitor the situation closely and look forward to the future relaxation of travel measures that will allow us to welcome international artists once again. 

Application Deadline: September 15, 2021

Program Dates: November 01 - November 12, 2021

Arrival: October 31, 2021
Departure: November 13, 2021

International Playable Theatre Lab

Share

Eligibility:

The International Playable Theatre Lab is a two-week digital residency offering artists in North Macedonia and Mexico the opportunity to explore the potential of interactive and playable theatre. We will bring together three theatre makers in North Macedonia and three in Mexico for a two-week online programme of exchange, training, mentoring and peer support. Each day of the residency, artists will take part in a half-day online workshop exploring a different approach to making theatre playable in the digital space, delivered by mentor artists who are expert in this approach.

Alongside these workshops, participating artists will be given several hours each day to work on a project of their own. Each artist will apply with a very early idea for a project in mind, which they will work on throughout the residency. In each workshop, the artists will be explore ways in which they might use that tool or approach to develop their project. At the end of the fortnight, the participating artists will share a scratch version of their project with their fellow participants and the mentor artists.

The lab is produced and facilitated by Upstart Theatre (London, UK), in partnership with Teatro al Cubo (Mexico City, Mexico), and MI Film (Skopje, North Macedonia). It is funded by the British Council.
