In Between Time, a biennial festival of 'live art and future performance practices', and The Arnolfini, a contemporary arts venue in Bristol, are seeking to commission an artist to make a new work to premiere at IBT15.
For the Wild Card commission IBT15 is looking for artists who 'challenge the boundaries of contemporary performance and question their relationship to audience, time and place' and who 'engage with live practice and employ an experimental approach to process, form and audience'. Artists working in emergent artforms, artists perceived to occupy the margins of society, and artists redefining the qualities of engagement with audiences, participants, co-conspirators, and the wider public are all sought.
Proposals can come from across contemporary live art practice – including staged, durational, one to one, sited, digital, sound, visual arts and theatre work – but should be made by artists with at least three years experience of professional practice. Proposed projects should be for new works that are realisable within a £2000 budget, that are adaptable to different locations, and that actively consider their relationship with an audience.
Selected artists/companies will receive an inclusive fee of £2000, plus accommodation during IBT15; inclusion in a showcase of work in IBT15; producing, marketing and technical support; and inclusion in a dedicated programme of networking events at IBT15.
For more information on how to apply see the guidance notes and application form. A proposal should include a completed application form, a detailed budget for the project, artist CV(s) (or a link to online documents), and two links to supporting documents (website, reviews, etcetera). Applications should be sent to email@example.com before 27 March 2014.
