Call to Artists: At the Wrecking Ball V (Deadline Sept 1)

In Call to Artists on July 25, 2011 by danceumbrella

Deadline: September 1, 2011

Performance Dates: January 26-29, 2012

Ambitious Enterprises is calling for submissions for the fifth (and possibly final!) installment of the Wrecking Ball Series.  Three successful artists will be chosen to be on the program along with the work of Kate Franklin and Tina Fushell.

We are looking for one emerging, one mid-career and one established choreographer working with an interdisciplinary collaborator.  Your collaborator can be at any stage of his/her career. Successful applicants receive a venue for their work, all technicians including lighting designer and stage manager, advertising and publicity and a video archive of the show.  Tina and Kate will fundraise their butts off to try to get you a show fee, but of course we had funding shortfalls and cannot guarantee a fee.  Please read the guidelines carefully to determine if your work is eligible.

1) The work must be 10 minutes in length or under
2) Please tell us whether you feel you are more an emerging, a mid-career or an established choreographer
3) The applicant must not be enrolled in a dance-training program
4) The work must contain two or more original elements, one of which must be dance, i.e., dance and film, dance and theatre, dance and poetry
5) Please do not submit works that have been performed as part of a student choreographic workshop

Please provide us with the following written material:
1) Biographies of all collaborators
2) A piece description (2 page maximum).  Please talk about how the collaborators will work together.  Please talk about how the two original elements (dance and whatever else) will combine to make an exciting work.

Please provide us with a maximum of 10 minutes of video samples. These can include:
1) A recording of the work if it has already been performed or rehearsal footage of the work;
2) Samples of past work if the work has not been started yet;
3) You may wish to include samples of work by your interdisciplinary collaborator as well.

Please mail or drop off your material to:
