IHRAF '20

Wild Project Theater

195 E. 3rd Street, East Village, NY

December 7-13, 2020
 

New York City's International Human Rights Art Festival (IHRAF) and Wild Project Theater issue a call for proposals for the fourth annual International Human Rights Art Festival, December 7-13, 2020 at the Wild Project. 

We are looking for performance pieces in all media by NYC-based artists, which are built around a social concern.  We are especially interested in work exhibiting the values of beauty, sincerity, vulnerability and engagement; work inspired by the open-heart of the artist, and not their anger, disgust or disapproval.  We believe that words spoken from the heart enter the heart, while words spoken from the mouth or out of anger or frustration, never get past the ears. 

There is no fee to apply.

All accepted performances will receive a production stipend, full tech support, PR and marketing support and free rehearsal time, depending on availability.

Deadline is July 1, 2020. 
Final decisions will be issued by August 31.

Please note: The planned production cannot have been produced in New York in 2020.  All performance pieces must be brought to the festival completely production-ready.

Deadline: 
07/01/2020

LINHA DE FUGA - INTERNATIONAL LABORATORY FOR ARTISTIC CREATION 2020

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

LINHA DE FUGA is the second edition of an international laboratory that aims to promote encounters between creators, artists and thinkers from different countries, designed as a field of experimentation, learning and sharing of collective knowledge. It takes place between 30 May and 21 June, 2020 in the city of Coimbra through practical creation seminars and collaboration workshops led by invited national and foreign artists who bring and propose different artistic practices to the participating artists.
The laboratory is aimed at arts professionals with a minimum creation path, with no age limit. We are looking for artists who want to expose their processes and interact with critique to their work from peers and the public.
The laboratory brings together 18 participants/creators who must answer this call with a work in process – which may be at different stages of development – and which will be the object of study throughout the Laboratory period or with an action proposal that should consider the construction of the common good in society. In this open call we welcome applications for two places for documenters whose function is to document the entire laboratory and its practices from a subjective and critical perspective and whose intention is to give back to society a way of documenting the ephemeral and the practices of knowledge transmission.

Designed as a Temporary Autonomous Zone, according to Hakim Bey’s ideas, LINHA DE FUGA will have moments of collective work where participants can compare and work on their artistic projects in relation to other practices; and individual work periods, where each participant defines the most appropriate way to occupy time available: in collaboration with other participants, in individual feedback with invited artists or in the development of their individual research.
In the next edition we want to rethink the concept of democracy, considering the current political trends in the world. A democratic society is a society that must consider difference and that does not regulate social life by a defined majority, as such; it must respect the anonymous, the excluded and the unnamed minority. However, and as defended by the Portuguese philosopher José Gil, “fear prevents certain forces from expressing themselves, inhibits, removes and separates the individual from their territory, retracts the space of the body, shatters group cohesions – all with mediate and immediate effects in the processes of economic, social, artistic and thought production.” In the territories 'classified' as peripheral, this situation is more evident when the construction of the image of the self is extremely important for the individual and, therefore, where the social pressure of fitting into a hegemonic majority makes us forget the importance of thinking about the common space, which belongs to everyone. Thus, we propose to think about the importance of anonymity, giving up the ego, the centralism, the protagonism. Our proposal is to think about the importance of public space for the construction of the pro-common: the space of democracy. What do we do as citizens to reduce the inequalities of a democracy? Can art do anything? Our challenge is to answer these questions throughout the laboratory.

Parallel to the Laboratory, a programme of shows, installations and performances is proposed, created by the invited artists and which the participants can attend for free and to which they can add the presentations of their work in progress.

Deadline: 
03/01/2020

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).

Include the following attachments to your application email:

Your choreographic C.V. in pdf format
One letter of recommendation 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.

AiR2020 : Following a successful pilot programme in 2019,  ŻfinMalta - National Dance Company, is excited to offer 3 residencies between the months of March & June 2020.  

 

Located in the Mediterranean, Malta is a bilingual country, speaking both English and Maltese, with year-round sunshine.  Within this unique setting, and based at the ŻfinMalta studios on Valletta’s Grand Harbour - one of the most scenic harbours in the world - the National Dance Company offers national and international dance-makers a space for research and dialogue.  ŻfinMalta is looking forward to welcoming both experienced and emerging, Europe-based dance artists currently undertaking choreographic research to develop and explore their work further in a new context, providing the time and space for focus on the creation and development of work.

WHAT IS REQUIRED FROM RESIDENCY ARTISTS?

50% of the token will be offered upon the signature of the residency agreement with the respective artists, whilst the other half of the token will be presented upon the start of the residency, both on presentation of invoice.

 

Local artists who may not need the token in order to cover flights and accommodation expenses, are asked to outline how the token would be used.  Artists may want to bring in other people to explore their research on or even bring in other people to document their process. Such applications of the token are eligible as long as they are included in the budget within the application form.
