Cyprus | Bodies of Work theoretical and performative training programme
BOW – Bodies of Work #2 project is calling for expressions of interest from young artists – with an interest in the cultural and artistic productions in the Mediterranean and a practice rooted in performance – for the 5-day intensive theoretical and performative training programme in Nicosia, Cyprus, 6–10 December 2023.
BOW – Bodies of Work #2 is the second edition of a 5-day intensive theoretical and performative training programme supported by the Department of Modern and Contemporary Culture – Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus and developed in collaboration with BJCEM – Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean and Dance House Leftkosia.
For the second edition of BOW – Bodies of Work, the programme will renounce the hierarchical organisation of learning and training spaces between mentors and mentees to shift towards a horizontal situation of practice sharing and communal physical thinking, aimed to generate reflections around pivotal questions of our contemporary world.
The activities of the programme will expand on mobility, movement, and displacement and what it is able to create as a space of reflection, opening up possibilities towards inventing new speculative pasts.
The call is open to artists with an interest in the cultural and artistic productions in the Mediterranean and a practice rooted in performance. Candidates have to be under 35 and come from or be based in the following territories:
- Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria, Tunisia
- The participation to this call is free of charge.
- Each selected candidate will be provided by BJCEM all the expenses related to the participation to the residency (tickets, accommodations, fee, per diem)
Deadline: 2 November 2023
