ROUTE BRAZIL-116 Commissions – Call for Applications
A new festival of discussions, performances and demonstrations from artists working 'in the context of the London-Edinburgh (M1) and Rio-São Paulo (BR-116) axis', ROUTE BRAZIL-116 is inviting submissions from artists based in the UK or Brazil who are interested in creating urban interventions related to private and public transport experiences.
Guiding questions for this Festival are:
1. What role does place have in the making of new work?
2. How do artists engage with their audiences in mega cities?
3. How is the space between cities defined, and what is its relevance to artists and audiences?
Through their proposals to use private and/or public transportation systems, artists should focus on the three guiding questions of the event. All proposals should consider the geographical limitations of the four routes which will be used during the festival:
1. Brazilian Embassy Mayfair to Trinity Buoy Wharf
2. Trinity Buoy Wharf to Theatre Square Stratford East
3. Theatre Square Stratford East to Arcola Theatre Hackney
4. Arcola Theatre to Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) The Mall.
Please note - any proposals should have the flexibility to be translated to any of the walk locations.
Proposals should be for a single performance, taking place at the pilot event in London 12-17 September. Commissioning budget is £750, and when writing your application you need to need to include a budget breakdown (including artist fees).
If you're interested in applying then send an initial outline of your proposal (no more than one side of A4) to email@example.com by 5pm on 24 August 2011.
The festival's September pilot is a collaboration between LIFT (London International Festival of Theatre) and the company Zecora Ura.
