Call For Proposals – La MaMa Residency

C.U.R.A – Centro Umbro Residenze Artistiche
NEXT GENERATION 2019
New Performance Development Incubator

Applications now OPEN! DEADLINE: MARCH 8, 2019
An intensive residential retreat for young theatre and dance creators, designed to give time and support to projects that are still in their initial phase of conception and development.
Next Generation is a special program open to individual artists, companies and informal groups during which the artists will have the opportunity to begin experimenting with ideas for new performances (theatre, dance, performance, etc.) The artists will have the opportunity to work individually or in groups on their own projects, while immersed in the natural inspiring environment of the Umbria Region.
This project will involve 3 different spaces of the Centre of Artistic Residency C.U.R.A.

  • –  La MaMa Umbria International in Spoleto 
  • –  Spazio ZUT in Foligno 
  • –  CAOS-INDISCIPLINARTE in Terni
    This Program is meant as an incubator for new performance projects in an embryonic stage and will not be open to projects that are already in an advanced phase of development, which require a more production oriented residency. Its purpose is to discover new talents and nurture the emergence of promising new performative ideas. Some of the artists may be invited to apply for a further residency period inside C.U.R.A. in order to advance the development of a project.
    The artists will have the opportunity to work in the 3 different spaces of C.U.R.A. for a total of 15 days. During the periods of residence, exchanges and dialogue between artists/companies will be facilitated. There will be moments where all the artists will have the opportunity to live and work together C.U.R.A will organized a final moment during which the artists will be asked to present (choosing the most appropriate
    form) the work elaborated in the days of residence.
    An international group of C.U.R.A. artists and producers will be invited to follow the retreat as mentors, offering an optional series of workshops and activities aimed at stimulating the creative process, and encouraging the exchange and dialogue among the various participants. They may offer assistance to any of the artists present or collaborate on projects that are compatible, if desired.
    Periodically the selected artists will be asked to share their processes with other participants and to provide constructive feedback. At the conclusion of the retreat, the artists will showcase their work (choosing the most appropriate form) for an invited public composed mainly of artists, theatre and dance presenters. 

Next Generation is open to a maximum of 6 single artists and/or companies, however for a
maximum of 18 people/artists total.
PRACTICAL INFORMATION

C.U.R.A. will give access to all the spaces, facilities and equipment. Food and lodging will be offered by each centre C.U.R.A and will vary depending upon the residency location. Lodging will be like an apartment (no single rooms).

Contemporary theatre and performance in the Arabic world is a diverse and contested set of practices that are unfolding in a fast-changing political and culturally complex region.  In this situation, the performing arts are under pressure to independently produce new work, uphold traditions— and simultaneously to speak about contemporary lives, nationalism, class, race, religion, gender and new forms of theatre. In this symposium, we ask how theatre can continue to grow, develop artistically and continue to be a voice in the future of the Arabic world.  How can the theatre in the region thrive?

Helping Foreign Artists Cut Through the Red Tape, Pro Bono

Matthew Covey’s work as an immigration fixer has assumed greater urgency in the Trump era.
Adversity can inspire great art, but it can also be a time suck. For more than twenty years, Matthew Covey has been helping musicians and other artists deal with government paperwork. He’s an immigration fixer; his firm, CoveyLaw, handles some twenty-five hundred visas every year, in affiliation with Tamizdat, a nonprofit whose mission is to promote cultural exchange. The name is a variant of “samizdat” (“self-published”), the Soviet term for clandestinely distributed dissident literature. “ ‘Tam’ means ‘over there,’ ” Covey explained the other day. “The stuff that’s taken across the border.”  Read more

(August 2-12, 2018
This year, we explore cutting-edge experimental theatre that crosses boundaries and intersects with other disciplines. During the 2-week session, you will engage in participatory workshops with all of the following artists.
RESIDENT ARTISTS 2018
Semion Aleksanderovskiy (Russia)
TEXT AS HERO
This workshop will be devoted to analyze and experience the technology of building relationships between artist and text in the post-dramatic theater. The text loses its status as a subject and turns to be an object. How do we create a character in this circumstances?
Semion Aleksanderovskiy studeied with Lev Dodin at St. Petersburg Theatre Arts Academy, one of the most rooted schools in the tradition of Stanislavsky. His search is also a dispute with the academic school and an attempt to find new ways for development and searching for one’s own system.
Stefanie Batten Bland (USA)
CROSS POLLINATION: AN APPROACH TO DANCE-THEATRE
This workshop will explore and increase creativity for makers looking to frame and support alternative productions. This workshop enables action and reaction to learnt and improvised material. Participants will leave with concrete scenic tools and articulate theories to address social and communal issues within work and explore their skills and limits.
Stefanie Batten Bland is a Jerome Robbins Award honoree. Her interdisciplinary creative practice is embedded in human relationships, the communicative choices we make, and how we fit into space and place.
The Talking Band (USA)
MAKING THE FAMILIAR UNFAMILIAR
In this workshop, Artistic Director Paul Zimet and Founding Member Ellen Maddow will share exercises and techniques -integrating text, image, music, and movement- that Talking Band has developed for creating its distinctive form of music-theater.  The goal is to discover ways to illuminate the extraordinary dimensions of ordinary life, and to find theatrical frames that enable our audiences to see them anew.
Talking Band: Art functions to break our habitual ways of experiencing and perceiving. Talking Band’s original interdisciplinary performance work has been a cornerstone of New York City’s avant-garde theater community for 44 years.
Krzysztof Garbaczewski (Poland)
AVATAR-ACTOR-SPECTACTOR
In our workshop we we will engage in a process of how to work with actors when developing productions that incorporate Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). We will discuss our process in a context of political and ecological paradigms present in the critical writings of Jerzy Grotowski.
Krzysztof Garbaczewski is a Polish theatre director and set designer known for his elaborate sets and innovative adaptations that cross the boundaries between theatre, film, dance, visual arts, and music. His upcoming project will be presented at The Wooster Group in New York City.
MIGDALIA CRUZ is a Bronx-born, award-winning playwright, lyricist, translator, and librettist of more than 60 works including: Miriam’s FlowersEl Grito Del BronxSaltFrida, Satyricoño,  & FUR, produced in venues—across the U.S. and abroad—including INTAR, Latino Chicago, BAM, Mabou Mines, National Theater of Greece, Houston Grand Opera, & Ateneo Puertorriqueño, An alumna of New Dramatists, she was named the 2013 Helen Merrill Distinguished Playwright, and was awarded a 2016 NYFA grant.  Current commissions: OSF’s PlayON! & Princeton University.

In print: Forward, the second play of the Arctic Cycle, is now available in printForward presents a poetic and humorous history of Norway, from the initial passion that drove explorer Fridtjof Nansen to the North Pole to our present-day anxiety over the rapidly changing climate. Woven through this history is the passionate love affair between Nansen and the character Ice. A blend of theatre, opera, and electropop music, the play progresses backwards from 2013 to 1893 and zeroes in on 40+ characters whose choices have unintended consequences that ripple through the generations.
Forward was developed over the last four years, both in the U.S. and in Norway.

Announcement about the HowlRound Theatre Map

Dear Theatre Without Borders network members,

I have some great news to share! Now you can “put yourself on the map” on the Theatre Without Borders Map and on the HowlRound World Theatre Map!

 

HowlRound is an online “knowledge commons by and for the entire theatre community”, a place where you can join a range of conversations by and about theatre makers, like yourself. Theatre Without Borders is thrilled to link up with HowlRound to support connections between artists nationally and globally.

 

The HowlRound Map is an ever-growing, user-generated directory for theatre artists of all kinds from all over the world.  Similar to our own Theatre Without Borders Map, the HowlRound Map’s purpose is to make artists more available to each other.  On the World Theatre Map, you can see what theatre is happening around the globe on any given day, you can search for artists using a variety of categories and tools, and you can add your own events and resources.  Like Wikipedia, anyone can add information and edit the Map. Currently, the project is in English, Spanish, and soon to be in French. As you will see, The Map already features thousands of people, organizations, and performances around the world.

 

To start, create a profile for yourself and your affiliate organizations. This way anyone searching the Map can easily connect with you and attend your events. When you create your profile, be sure to include Theatre Without Borders as an Affiliation.

 

HowlRound also welcomes you to author blog posts and articles for their commons.  To find more information about that, please visit http://howlround.com/participate, or get in touch with me directly.

 

Meanwhile, our Theatre Without Borders Map is still alive and well!  With its focus on grassroots artist-to-artist connection on the themes of social engagement, peacebuilding, and empowerment, the Theatre Without Borders Map will continue to help you make connections artist-to-artist and people-to-people.  HowlRound’s Map offers you a way to post your profile and inform a larger community about what you are doing.

 

As a Theatre Without Borders Next-Gen Member and a HowlRound World Theatre Map Ambassador, I am working to expand the categories on the Map to be as inclusive and useful as possible.  Any questions or comments are very much appreciated and can be posted in the Map’s forum or sent to me directly.

 

I look forward to seeing you on the Map!
