Evolution: Quartet | Classical Music Summer 2020

Share

Overview

Evolution: Quartet explores the string quartet lineage from Haydn to new music made in Banff by and for the program’s faculty and participants.

Led by the internationally celebrated Eybler, Parker, and Jack string quartets, the Evolution: Quartet mentor group is further reinforced by an extraordinary cohort of instrumentalists, composers, and scholars. 

Participants will explore the early string quartet, with sessions on intonation, harmony, and structure, as well as in-depth discussions on style and rhetoric. Quartets from the traditional canon will be studied and performed alongside works by mentor composers Marc Sabat, Natacha Diels, and Caroline Shaw. Participant composers' works will be performed by participant string quartets, and faculty quartets will play world premieres by guest composers.

Participants and audiences alike will explore the lineage of the string quartet, both as a historical genre and as a new and invigorated practice in the early 21st century.

What does the program offer?

Evolution: Quartet provides a highly engaged, specialized, and integrated approach to performance, theory, and composition for string quartets. Participants will gain exposure to period performance of classical and romantic music through coaching as well as one-on-one and informal reading sessions, all within state of the art facilities in an astonishing natural environment.  

Participants will present public and in-house performances. The residency will produce nearly a concert per day for three weeks — from publicized, ticketed events to participant-driven “throw downs” and octet, as well as other chamber music reading sessions with participants and faculty side by side.

Participants will also convene in a daily meeting for high-level presentations by select faculty. Previous topics have included intonation, quartet dynamics, affect and rhetoric, advanced rhythm, performing editions, structural analysis, introduction to neo-Riemannian theory, and in-depth exploration of faculty composers' work and process. Performance and composition faculty will also offer coaching and private lessons.

Evolution: Quartet is designed for pre-formed string quartets; however there areopportunities for individuals. Individuals who apply will be placed in different quartets throughout the program. These newly-formed quartets will explore repertoire chosen by themselves and in consultation with faculty.

Composers will receive instruction and mentorship from the program’s internationally distinguished composition faculty, and will have their pieces performed by participants.

Who should apply?

Established string quartets, violinists, violists, cellists, and composers are encouraged to apply. The successful applicants will be post-secondary students or emerging artists, already at an advanced level of accomplishment and with a well-documented record of musical exploration. Artists from historically underrepresented groups are especially welcomed. 

Prizes: 

*Financial Aid up to 100% is available to cover tuition (meal plans and accommodations are not eligible).

Call for Proposals: HB Studio Rehearsal Space Residency & Playwrights Reading Series

HB Studio invites theater artists and playwrights to submit a project for either or both of two opportunities for the development of new work in 2020: the HB Rehearsal Space Residency, and the HB Playwrights Reading Series. One application serves both programs. (Selected projects will receive one of the two opportunities.) Before applying, please read the details about each program below.

Application deadline: November 8, 2019

HB Rehearsal Space Residencies

HB Studio is dedicated to training and practice for the theater, and seeks to provide a commerce-free environment for the nurturing and growth of theater artists. In pursuit of this goal, HB offers six two-month Rehearsal Space Residencies each year for the development of creative projects. The HB Rehearsal Space Residency is an opportunity for practicing theater artists to collaborate on experimental projects, develop new work, and share workshop presentations among peers and colleagues, for constructive critical feedback and mutual growth. (Please note, the residency’s focus is on rehearsal and development, not production, and we are unlikely to select projects which are primarily intended to “showcase” work). The Rehearsal Space Residency is an open opportunity; you do not have to be affiliated with HB Studio to apply. However we do ask that our resident artists work with us to engage with our community of students and faculty while in residence at HB.

ELIGIBLE RESIDENCY PROJECTS MAY INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO, THE FOLLOWING:

  • Rehearsed workshops or readings of new plays
  • New/exploratory staging or adaptation of existing works
  • Devised or improvised work
  • Musical theater works and theater works incorporating music
  • Movement-based theater work

IF SELECTED FOR A RESIDENCY, YOU RECEIVE:

  • Free rehearsal space, up to 9 hours each week, for two months.
  • During the second month, free presentation space over four weekends (Saturday & Sunday evenings) in the First Floor Studio, which may be used for public presentations, rehearsals, or both.
  • Limited temporary storage during the second month of each residency.
  • An orientation to the space and technical equipment.
  • Announcements of public presentations via HB Studio’s weekly notice and social media postings.
  • An eventbrite.com page created by HB staff for taking ticket reservations.
  • The opportunity to audit classes at HB Studio free of charge (one session per class only).

IF SELECTED FOR A RESIDENCY, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR:

  • Sharing at least two public presentations at 8pm on the final Saturday & Sunday of the residency. Additional presentations on the prior weekends may be added if desired.
  • Crafting and running all elements of your public presentations, including tech, set up, break down, stage management and front of house.
  • Providing your own technicians to design and run the show, if using tech elements.
  • Providing your own costume, props or set pieces, as needed. Limited props and set pieces are available for use in the First Floor Studio. (Ideal projects will be those that cultivate a “no budget” aesthetic – self-produced, bare bones, etc.)
  • Creating your own publicity materials and promoting your presentations.
  • Gathering and sharing feedback on your work-in-progress from colleagues and audience is encouraged.
  • Completing a survey for HB about your experience at the end of the project period.

Note: The format of our residency program does not allow for AEA members to participate under the Showcase Code as the Code now requires performance dates during the week as well as weekends. Please contact the Actors Equity Association for any exceptions.

HB Playwrights Reading Series

Each year, HB Studio produces one week of staged readings of new full-length plays. Six plays each receive one evening for a staged reading in the HB Playwrights Theatre, followed by a talk-back with the audience. The goal is to nurture the development of new plays, and provide a crucial step in the life of a new play that may not yet be ready for full production or performance. It is an opportunity for playwrights to see their work on its feet, collaborate with actors and directors, and share the work among peers and colleagues for feedback, mutual growth, and dialogue. This is an open opportunity; you do not have to be affiliated with HB Studio to apply. All original full-length plays are eligible, with preference given to works that have not received previous opportunities for readings or performance.

IF SELECTED FOR THE READING SERIES, HB STUDIO WILL PROVIDE:

  • Two days of free rehearsal space: a table read the day prior to your reading, and a rehearsal in the theater the day of your reading.
  • An AEA Staged Readings Agreement.
  • Technical and Production support.
  • Marketing, promotion, and ticketing.
  • If needed, help with finding actors, director, and moderator for the talk-back.

IF SELECTED FOR THE READING SERIES, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR:

  • Creating your own mini-production company: You will be responsible for finding a director and casting your own play. (We’re here to help if needed.)
  • Following the AEA Staged Readings Guidelines
  • Keeping presentations as technically simple as possible: no props, no interior sound cues, no interior light cues.
  • Providing pre- and post-show music
  • Participating in a brief (10 min) talkback after the presentation of your play, and finding a moderator for the talk back.
  • Writing a logline for the play for HB to use in promo and marketing.

CPR's Artist-in-Residence Open Call 2020

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

CPR - Center for Performance Research’s Artist-in-Residence (AiR) program seeks to support a wide range of artists from emerging choreographers to established companies, working within the various aspects of dance and performance. Since its inception in 2012, with the generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, CPR’s AiR Program has provided up to 15 artists per year (selected by invitation) with 100 hours of deeply subsidized rehearsal hours at advanced booking. In an effort to create a more inclusive and equitable selection process, we are piloting an open call application by a peer artist committee this year. The committee will review applications, and through a scoring and discussion process, select CPR’s AiRs for 2020. Using this approach, CPR aspires to increase visibility, opportunities, and resources for a diverse range of dance artists in the field.

Our 2020 AiR Program will provide 10 artists with an increase of deeply subsidized rehearsal hours (150) with advance booking privileges and a $1,000 stipend. Artists will have opportunities to share their current practice with the larger CPR and NYC dance communities, have several informal opportunities for community engagement, and receive complimentary time in the large studio to share their practice with other AiRs. 

CPR's AiR program is supported by Dance/NYC’s New York City Rehearsal Space Subsidy Program, an initiative made possible by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Additional funding generously provided by the Howard Gilman Foundation, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
