Concept:
We would like submitted mixes and performance intentions to be inspired by the idea of embodiment: it means that your work might explore how to be embodied, real and tangible. Through your creation, you may invite the audience on a journey of discovering and using their different senses. Exploring the idea that your work has its own agenda to have an embodied way of being in the world.

"Embodiment is the cell's awareness of themselves. You let go of your conscious mapping. It is a direct experience; there are no intermediary steps or translations. There is no guide, no witness (...). In this instance, the brain is the last to know". Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen

 

Selection Criteria:
Project responses will be reviewed based on the proposals. Only those projects meeting the open call criteria will be reviewed.
