Deadline: 7 May 2020
For 2020’s edition of performingbordersLIVE (March – November 2020), performingbordersLIVE and LADA invite proposals for two digital conversations by curators, artists, researchers, activists, thinkers and/or other professionals working in Live Art. Applicants will be interested in adding new perspectives on the relations between the ideas and the lived experiences of borders within Live Art practices, and in exploring the potentialities of digital conversations as a way to re-imagine and share knowledge-production within the field.
The digital conversations can be explored and produced in any digital form applicants see fit. This includes writing, video, collage or audio etc, however, the conversations should be an exploration between at least two individuals or entities.
The two selected proposals will receive an honorarium of £400 each (inclusive of taxes and expenses) for the preparation and delivery of the digital conversation.
Anyone who works in Live Art in the UK and/or internationally and whose practice and research has been shaped by experiences of migration and borders is eligible and welcome to apply. We welcome proposals from individuals, collaborations and collectives (the fee for the delivered piece however will remain £400).
This call is a part of a wider programme called performingbordersLIVE20 that runs from March to November 2020. performingbordersLIVE20 is presented in collaboration with Counterpoints Arts (London), Live Art Development Agency (London), Contact (Manchester), East Street Art (Leeds), Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts (Brighton), The Albany/Deptford Lounge (London), King’s College London, Something Human/Asia-Art-Activism, Never Done, Ọ̀ RỌ̀ ÀNÍKÉ, East London Cable, Green Rooms Hotel (London), HowlRound Theatre Commons (Boston,US), Warehouse9/International Performance Art Festival (Copenhagen, Denmark).
