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.

Eligibility:

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.

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 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?
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.

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.

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Overview  
This program provides space and focused time for musicians of all genres to concentrate on artistic development while working on projects that can be either individually or group/ensemble based. You may be working in your established genre(s), or exploring a new one.

Along with the freedom to structure your time around the needs of your project, you will receive artistic inspiration and career advice from well-established faculty who will connect with participants during the program, both in person and online. The visiting artists come from all musical backgrounds, therefore over 3 weeks participants will have access to a range of artistic influences.

Weekly public concerts in an intimate Banff Centre venue will allow you to try out new material, perform repertoire, and share the stage with fellow artists and faculty, to a receptive and casual local audience. These concerts are also recorded for your archival use.

What does the program offer?
A different visiting artist is brought in each week to assist and mentor program participants. Visiting artists are available four to five hours per day for group and one-on-one consultations. The opportunities for interaction and collaboration have the potential to produce outstanding, creative results.  Performance and recording opportunities are also available.

A personal studio space to work from is provided and available 24 hours a day. Production spaces are shared among all participants in the residency.

Those interested in additional professional development can apply for the role of Artistic Associate and act as the liaison between faculty and musicians for the program's duration. An individual of exceptional musical ability and maturity will be offered this unique opportunity to be involved in the delivery and event curation of the Banff Musicians in Residence program. The Artistic Associate will liaise between visiting artists and resident musicians as well as Music programming and production staff.

Who should apply?
The program is ideal for individual musicians, ensembles, bands, composers, and music researchers resident in Canada, to spend focused time working on a specific project; creating new works; preparing for concerts, auditions or competitions; or exploring and researching innovative ideas. Participants should be comfortable working autonomously in an unstructured environment to benefit the most from the program. Musicians at all levels are encouraged to apply.

The Artistic Associate may come from any musical background, but will have a wide-ranging knowledge and interest in a variety of musical genres. You must apply with a specific project and will be asked to submit a letter of intent specifically for the Artistic Associate role at the end of the application process.  A phone interview will be scheduled for the shortlisted candidates.

Please note: International participants are welcome to apply to on-campus programs that start after January 1, 2022. We will continue to monitor the situation closely, and ask that all those applying to programs investigate and monitor current regulations of the country from which you will be travelling. Note that if a quarantine period is required, this will be at the expense of the participant. (Please click here for up to date travel restriction measures).

Creative Practice for Contemporary Dance Online 2021

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

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

PACAP 5 - Performing Arts Advanced Programme
Not knowing together
- 2021/22
Curatorship by João Fiadeiro in collaboration with Márcia Lança, Carolina Campos and Daniel Pizamiglio.

Applications for the next edition of PACAP - Performing Arts Advanced Programme are now open.
The fifth edition of the Performing Arts Advanced Programme is curated by João Fiadeiro, in collaboration with Márcia Lança, Carolina Campos and Daniel Pizamiglio.
This advanced training course will run from September 6, 2021 to July 30, 2022 and is aimed for dancers, choreographers, performers and other artists with practices related to performance, body and movement.

\\\\\ INTRODUCTION /////
“PACAP 5’s programming will aim to provide a diverse and non linear approach towards artistic research, employing as reference the study and experimentation of improvisation through Real Time Composition (bloc I); collaborative practices starting from a shared question (bloc II); and practices of individual research for each participant (bloc III). Depending on their interests and availability, participants will be able to opt for a 3, 6 or 9 month course. In order to do the second and third blocs participants must attend the previous ones. The number of participants will decrease as the course progresses: 24 in the first bloc, 16 in the second and 8 in the third and final one, thereby establishing different intensities and ways of involvement with the different research practices of decision, collaboration and creation proposed within the course.
João Fiadeiro and some members of the Atelier RE.AL Collective (Márcia Lança, Carolina Campos, Daniel Pizamiglio and Ivan Haidar) will be present during the entire duration of the course in order to replicate the laboratorial practice that has always characterized our activity. This aims to produce a sense of continuity between blocs and create the condition to deepen the research experience, which would be difficult to implement if the course were structured around a more fragmented and punctual participation of external guests. Regardless, running parallel to a more constant relationship with the Atelier RE.AL Collective we will invite artists and researchers to direct occasional workshops associated with the subjects being explored in each bloc. With these invitations we aim to create a critical distance with regards to our practice, to tune in to other ways of thinking-doing artistic research and generate some breathing room between the cycles.” – Curatorial Team

\\\\\ TARGET AUDIENCE /////
The course is aimed at dancers, choreographers, performers and other artists whose practices relate to performance, body and movement. Applicants should position themselves as peers and not students and see artistic creation as a space of research through art, meaning a platform for the exploration of processes of correlation, collaboration and decision in an environment that does not distinguish between theory and practice and promotes permeability between subjects, thereby regarding the work of art as a consequence of a process and not as its end.

\\\\\ PROGRAM TIMELINE /////
Bloc I - Study, experimentation and practice of Real Time Composition
: September 6 until December 4, 2021
Bloc II - Collaboration processes based on a shared question: January 17 until April 16, 2022
Bloc III - Individual investigation processes of each participant: April 26 until July 30, 2022

REMOTE INSTRUCTIONAL RESIDENCY

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

REMOTE INSTRUCTIONAL RESIDENCY

Crossed by the current context, we think in the necessity of researching the possibilities of the artistic work, bounded by the social distancing provisions we look for alternatives of coexistence through the artistic activation of our Shop- Window. Different voices have drawn our attention to the increasing vigilance and control by the state and society in general.

Instructional Residency is proposed as an artistic device of visibility and reflection on the current context and its consequences, based on the appearance in the public space in a situation of isolation / social distancing due to the pandemic. Using the space of a commercial showcase beside the street, Belgrado’s Shop-Window becomes a device of aseptic exhibition, isolated from the viewers, the passers by that walk the Belgrano Avenue in the City of Buenos Aires.

We invite artists to send their proposals to carry out their work remotely in the Belgrado’s Shop-Window. The proposals will be sent as instructions, and Casa Belgrado team will carry out the works based on the artistic instructions of the selected proposals, (subject to) the human and technical resources of the space.

FIELDS OF CREATION

Site Specific, transdisciplinary transit between contemporary performing practices, performance, movement, theater and its possible expansions, to sound, multimedia and audiovisual art. We embrace intersections and experiences in hybrid formats of composition and presentation close to the idea of post-discipline.

Social isolation – body – home – virus and pandemic – control and surveillance devices – posthumanism – interior- exterior – dystopian futures.

The selected projects will have three encounters via zoom before the realization of the piece-instructive:

  1. -General presentation
  2. -Technical and artistic direction meeting
  3. -Technical and artistic tunning

Important considerations:

The residency has no cost for the artist

The pieces will take place totally inside the Belgrado’s Shop-Window

The exhibition of the pieces can last between 3 hours and 4 days

The access of the public to the Shop-Window will not be allowed

The costs of necessary materials and additional resources are the responsibility of the artist.

The realization of the pieces includes the audiovisual recording of them and their divulgation on social media

All details and incidentals not mentioned in this convocatory will be resolved in dialogue with Casa Belgrado’s team.

The human and material resources will be available for the proposals

The proposals will be received until july 31

The selected projects will be announced the first week of August.

The selected projects will be exhibited during 2020. Doubts and queries to espaciobelgrado@gmail.com
