Open Call for Artists for PUSH+ Different Bodies Lab
Posted: 6 February, 2020
The Ark are looking for three Ireland-based artists for the third and final PUSH+ residential lab taking place in Stamsund, Norway from 8-18 September 2020.
PUSH+ is a Creative Europe-funded project led by Imaginate (Scotland) alongside Krokusfestival (Belgium), The Ark, Aaben Dans (Denmark), Scenekunstbruket (Norway) and associate partner Bangkok International Children’s Festival (Thailand). PUSH+ stimulates European dialogue and initiates new artistic ideas and performances around three important topics in performance for young audiences – Home, Failure and Different Bodies. These are topics that push us to take more risks as makers and presenters, to address the under-representation of different lives on our stages and to tell stories that really connect with children and who they are.
This application is for the Different Bodies Lab which will take place in Stamsund, Norway from 8-18 September 2020. This Lab will bring together fifteen artists based in five different countries in Europe to explore ideas around different bodies in theatre and dance for young audiences.
If you are an artist working in these fields, to find out more about this lab download the application guidelines here: Different Bodies Lab Information and Guidelines.
To apply, please complete their online application form. Applications must be received by Friday 6 March 2020.
