OPEN CALL FOR PERFORMANCE / LIVE ARTWORKS

Subject: Letters 

 

Can art have an address? An addressee? A recipient? Can an artistic creation be based on second-person grammar? Can/should I address heavy subjects, personal at times, such as love letters, answering bureaucratic letters, or writing to yourself in secrecy? 

 

We would love to hear your thoughts and contemplations, through a proposal for a one-evening performance. You can be one person or a group, and use different types of live art. We prefer works that use surprising means and methods, to practices that use traditional perceptions of thinking. They can be incorporative, multidisciplinary, humorous works, etc.  Works which aim to relate to concrete subjects are preferred. 

 

Please note, we are an artist-run space; therefore, unfortunately, we cannot offer a budget, but we will provide PR and modest technical help. The gallery space is large, beautiful, and nicely located. There is also the possibility to sell tickets, if appropriate and suitable. 

 

Requirements: 

Short description of the work, no longer than 250 words, and tell us why your work relates to the subject. No restriction of age, gender, and origin.

A open-microphone performance, which can be done solo or with a group, where the theme is “complaining.”  For example, you can bring all the annoying letters you got, all the bills you must pay, all the exhausting SMS and emails you received, and talk about them.

Participation in our “complaining choir,”  led by musician and singer Netta Shahar (an Israeli composer, arranger and singer. Her works include pieces for orchestra, chamber and vocal ensembles, choral pieces, electro-acoustic music, and music for dance). On April 26, 2020, we will meet and learn how to talk/sing about all of our problems. The meeting will start with choosing sentences for singing, then group activities, and then – right to work! No worries: no singing skills needed, we do not aim for musicians only.
