The In Progress Feedback Festival (IPFF), the festival that has become a tradition and institution at Kinitiras, is celebrating its 10 years of existence this year and will take place between the 29/03/2019 and 01/04/2019 in Athens.
We are celebrating the anniversary edition of the first festival in Greece that focuses on the creative process and the relationship between the creator and her/his audience instead of being product focused.

In 2016 the In progress Feedback Festival was included amongst the best festivals in Europe by the EFFE International Jury (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe, www.effe.eu).

The main aim of the In Progress Feedback Festival is research, experimentation and the ways through which the in progress pieces are affected. The uniqueness of the IPFF is located in its two very crucial functions:
the development of the work and feedback on it. Functions that demand special sensitivity, courage and update of our knowledge.

For the anniversary of the 10 years of the IPFF, apart from the contesting groups-who are selected following application-we will invite artists that passed by the festival the past years to present part of their creative process, conduct a residency, offer workshops and mentoring to the contesting artists as well as be part of the jury.
Reknown artists but also recently established groups from the area of the performing arts will share outlines from their work and will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with other creators (mentoring). Trying out various approaches without the pressure of the production of a final outcome and getting in direct touch with the spectators through interactive discussions, questionnaires and other imaginative ways of idea-exhanging, the participants receive the feedback that will lead them to a complete performance in the future.

This year’s thematic umbrella for all of Kinitiras’ activities is THE JOURNEY. The notion of a journey both litterally and metaphorically. The journey in life, in space, in time, in the body, in the mind, in dreams, in litterature, in the streets, in civilisations.The suggested works will somehow be connected to this particular topic and their approach will express the journey that they choose to explore.

The piece that will win the jury’s award will receive a symbolic amount as a support for the upcoming production, while the group that will receice the audience’s award will receive a month’s residency for the completion of its research.

The existence of a festival such as the In Progress Feedback Festival (IPFF) provides the opportunity to the society, its creators and the people that support it to coexist, to influence each other and develop with freedom and respect towards difference. It is also an important breeding ground for expression, mutual support and inspiration through research and the performing arts.

Theatre and dance groups can participate in this competitive festival with projects of 10′-20′ that are still in progress. The on stage artists should be from one to four and props cannot be bigger than 1m x 1m.

Kinitiras will offer to the selected groups*:
– Promotion / Advertising
– Technical assistance
– Two indoor rehearsals in each group
– Mentoring during rehearsals if requested.

Applications’ deadline: 28/12/2018

*Travel expenses and accommodation are covered by the artists.
