Between the Seas: a residency around Mediterranean Performing Arts in Monemvasia, Greece – Call for residency
Deadline: 1 March 2019
Between the Seas in collaboration with the culture space Kymothoi, invite Mediterranean artists to spend one week in residency in the gorgeous Mediterranean medieval town of Monemvasia, in Southern Greece, to work and develop their project. The residency will be held between 30 August and 23 September 2019.
During the residency, artists will be invited to explore the region and engage with the local community through discussions, workshops and performances. At the end of the residency, artists will present a public performance for the local audiences. The goal of the BTS residency is to enrich the local cultural life in a sustainable way and advocate for international exchange beyond the urban centers, on a people-to-people level.
The call is addressed to emerging and established artists from the Mediterranean – or artists from all over the world whose work engages with the Mediterranean (in terms of themes, performance styles and traditions, sociopolitical questions, etc.), who work in the fields of dance, theatre, music, puppetry, playwriting and theatrical translation.
The residency offers a fully equipped studio space for rehearsals and accommodation (in shared housing) for up to 7 nights. Artists will have to cover airfare and local transport (Athens-Monemvasia and back) as well as daily expenses.
The deadline for applications is 1 March 2019.
To apply, please send applications by email at firstname.lastname@example.org including the following:
- A cover letter;
- A description of the project that you plan to work on (please specify what stage of the project’s development are you at and how the residency will help you take it to the next level);
- A proposal on a workshop/seminar/class you’d like to teach for the local community or other suggestions/ideas of how you’d like to get involved with the local community;
- A proposal of a public performance at the end of the residency (this can be the project you will work during the residency or a different project that you have previously developed);
- Work samples and bios of the participating artists;
