Moving Body Festival #6 Critical Moves! OPEN CALL 2021

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Moving Body festival platform is dedicated to connecting artists, mediums and audiences through art that shares a strong choreographic sensibility.

The COVID-19 pandemic affects all spheres of both our personal and professional lives, presenting the performing arts with enormous challenges and an urgent need to re-organize their activities, to rethink their role and place in society. Therefore, in 2021, through the instrument of choreography and the lens of the festival platform Moving Body, we want to find those new readings of the current environmental and socio-political challenges of our time, which will become a starting point for our discussions during the main program of the edition in November 2021.

We all seem to be striving at this moment (striving we believe is the need for communication and direction) to join a large-scale collective moving body, а material as well as an abstract one, but always a body in motion, which through our virtual screens seems pixelated, incomplete, in search of experiencing its identity – the only thing that makes it feel whole.

Questioning the existing fixed notions in our language, the possible directions for the future, and the reality where the subjective and the objective meet, moves us to take and experiment in different directions in the landscape of the collective mind, examining possibilities for our future as a species, as human beings, standing on the result of History. Every standing body develops over time a resisting mechanism against gravity, and standing itself, where the feet and the surface meet, is an act of pushing the ground.

The critical moves, which we perceive as a rich territory in which we stand and push the ground, provoke us to ask again the questions which work as a driving force for the Moving Body platform: How do we move? What moves us? In which direction are we moving? How do we move from an individual toward a collective body shaping the future history? How do we move in a time of Catastrophe?

The festival invites scholars, artists and other multidisciplinary participants to submit works of WRITING, VISUAL ART, SOUND AND NEW MEDIA… as every media is perceived as a critical body which explores new modes of coexisting between all forms of life and art. We would like to provide an orientation with which to discuss the current ecological and sociopolitical challenges of our time, through the lens of the Moving Body platform.

Prizes Details: 

Every selected project will receive a Moving Body Digital diploma and the best works from each category will be awarded the financial support of €150.

We understand this is more of a symbolic sum for your achievement, rather than a significant one, but we want to show our appreciation and support as an organisation, despite the fact that this year our funds were cut. We do not wish for this obstacle to get in the way of our passionate aim to coordinate the sixth edition of the initiative in which we believe in. In this line of thought, all participation fees will be invested in the live, digital and possibly printed realisation of Moving Body Festival 2021.

We thank you for the understanding and support from your side, and we wish you to always keep the motivated inner creative fire burning!

Creative Practice for Contemporary Dance Online 2021

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.

Program Dates: June 14 - 19, 2021

Country:

EXTENDED APPLICATION DEADLINE! APPLICATIONS DUE FEBRUARY 10!

The Choreographic Development Residency is a 5-week program to foster the development of new work by emerging to mid-career choreographers of exceptional promise. UNCSA Summer Dance will award four choreographers the opportunity to further their choreographic research and create new dance works by providing studio space, dancers, personal mentoring with Helen Pickett, weekly workshops and access to participate in daily technique classes. Participants will receive room, board and a stipend.

The residency culminates in a performance of the work set on students in UNCSA’s summer program at UNCSA’s Stevens Center. Through this initiative, UNCSA School of Dance looks to deepen its mission of developing original works, supporting artists and giving back to the broader community. Choreographers will be chosen from an open call for submissions. 

Choreographic Development Residency June 21 – July 24, 2020

 

The residency will consist of daily technique class (optional), morning mentoring sessions, workshops, and lectures, all led by esteemed Summer Dance faculty and guests.  Afternoon rehearsals with a cast of dancers from UNCSA Summer Dance will follow. In the evenings, choreographers will have access to UNCSA’s beautiful studios for further choreographic research.

The residency will culminate in a performance of the work. Video documentation of the work will be provided. The UNCSA Summer Dance Final Workshop Performance will be held July 24, 2019, at the Stevens Center.

 

Requirements

The program is looking for emerging and mid-career choreographers who exhibit a strong choreographic voice and exceptional promise. Two Contemporary choreographers and two Contemporary Ballet choreographers will be selected.

UNCSA’s Choreographic Institute is ideal for candidate’s that are open, creative, and driven. Though much of the time is structured in mentoring sessions—from application processes to costume design, much of the time on your own. We aim to give recipients the time to focus on creation, process and both personal and professional development. We hope to provide tools for this development, including but not limited to rehearsal studios, pre-professional and professional dancers on selected evenings, a library, mentors, an extensive arts library, a gym, etc.

 

This residency is two-fold in priority—one is your development as a choreographer, and the other is the work set on the students. The caliber of the work is expected to be high, with a prepared plan coming in to the session. We also expect recipients to coach and create a rehearsal environment in which  students can learn, be pushed and be supported. They are high school age students of varying, and the main stage choreography will be set on them. One of the intended outcomes of this residency is for there to be reciprocal growth between you and the students you are setting work on.

Choreographers must have two years of choreographic experience.

How to Apply

 

NEW APPLICATION DEADLINE FEBRUARY 10th. Selected choreographers will be notified by March 10th, 2020. In the body of the email include your name, address, email and phone number. Indicate which category you are applying for: Contemporary or Contemporary Ballet (you may only apply for one).

Your choreographic C.V. in pdf format

An artistic statement (one page maximum) in pdf format
A link to a 5-minute video example of one of your choreographic works from the past three years. Video should be a 5-minute consecutive section. Prefer works with four or more dancers, since selected pariticpants will be choreographing on 15+ UNCSA summer students.

There is no fee to apply. Partial applications will not be considered.
