PARL provides every participant a studio space in one of Ljubljana's performance venues. The course of work at PARL is focused on development of creative processes, performative strategies and presentation formats with the ambition of expanding the field of contemporary performance practice and upgrading its production models.
Ljubljana's independent art scene is a field of intellectual and artistic resistance marked by continuous innovation of creative strategies for "fighting" against the dominant cultural, political and ideological mindset. PARL joins various creative practices, working methods and production models of leading Ljubljana based performance artists and producers. If you are a performance art maker and you need space and time to research, an environment to develop your project, an opportunity to present your work and to open up your collaborative network – welcome to PARL.
Every day you will meet a new coach. The coaches will focus on all the aspects of your project development from conceptual to esthetic issues. With different trainers, you will have the opportunity to try out diverse workout techniques. And at a three-day seminar, you will discuss contemporary artistic production with renowned Slovenian theorists.
Public showing, networking, developing, research, expanding the field of contemporary performance practice and upgrading its production models.
PARL provides basic spatial conditions with minimal technical equipment. Due to limited spatial options and different technical equipment, please be realistic about the assessment of your needs and be prepared for the necessary adaptations and self-organization. The final agreement on space and other working needs follows after the completion of the admission procedure.
Accommodation will be provided by PARL at one or more hostels in the Ljubljana city center, with breakfast included. Be prepared to share your room with one or two participants (double or three-bed rooms).
