Call for proposals “Creative practices as a tool to work with heritage. Theater, performance, live art" Summer Symposium

Oslo, Norway, July 28 - August 4

Deadline: June 1st

 

We warmly invite you to take part in the Summer Symposium organized by the Nordic Summer University. Our section will be focusing on the Nordic-Baltic regions’ heritage and all kinds of performative practices which will be considered as a tool to interpret, redefine and appropriate heritage.

This focus seems to us important and relevant for at least two reasons. Firstly, today many researchers consider heritage as a process and even as a performance. Secondly, the interaction between heritage and art opens up new possibilities, ranging from the inclusion of the body and perception to the chance to discover something for one's own experience.

Future participants can propose both theoretical presentations (up to 30 minutes) and practical workshops (up to 90 minutes). Possible topics include, but are not limited to: 

site-specific theater and performance in historical sites or on historical topics

embodied knowledge and body memory

theater and performance in museums

historical reenactment

performative commemoration

interventions in a city space

connection between urban environment and people, social practices

heritage as performance

Since our Study Circle was created specially for Nordic Summer University, we are eager to focus on cases and topics dedicated to the Nordic-Baltic regions and will prioritize applications connected to this geography.

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: 
01/March/2020

Registration fee for selected candidates - 250€ with a meal included throughout the laboratory period. ‍ 2) Participants will be able to extend their stay in Coimbra for another week (until 26 June), participating in the festival's workshops and activi

Eligibility:

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.
