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.

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

\\\\\ ARTISTS AND INVITED INTERVENIENTS /////

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

Love Sharing Festival - International Theatre Festival - 6th Edition

Share

Type:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Organized by Theandric, a drama company taking an innovative and experimental approach to political theatre, “Love Sharing” is the first International Festival dedicated to the culture of peace and non- violence.

Contemporary art, scientific research, social and political innovation get in touch with each other, with the territory, with the social and political institutions, with residents and citizens by challenging their views and engaging in debates in order to build an expanding net.

Will a world without violence ever exist?

The 6th edition will be held in 2020 in Cagliari, Sardinia (Italy). It will focus on Madness and Revolution.

How many meanings does the word “madness” have?

Which is the relationship between madness and social, political and scientific revolution?

Madness means being unconventional, breaking the rules, changing perspective.

In this 6th Edition, Love Sharing Festival analyses madness and its limits through the lens of Nonviolence.

There are more ways than one to be crazy.

Which types of collective madness are there? War, environmental degradation, consumerism?

Is it legitimate to consider people insane if they don’t respect social norms? If so, what’s their fate as individuals?

What defines a person as crazy, talking about mental illness?

Is there a link between madness and political dissent?

Very often, foolish people are pioneers, the ones who can find in a closed system a gateway to change and improvement. This is true for scientists and artists. But are we foolish enough?

And what about love, the sweetest madness? Is there a force as capable as love to give our lives a twist?

The boundaries between craziness and normality, sense, freedom and power are constantly redrawn as human sensitivity changes, in historical, social and cultural terms.

Madness is like a creature that can’t be tamed.

If you are an artist (theatre, dance, music, circus, performing arts, visual arts) and you want to give your contribution to this exciting topic, we are ready to receive your proposals.
