Showtime - Call for Submissions of performative work

Every summer since 2006, Gasworks organises an open submission project that concentrates on one art form. This year, the focus will be on performance. How applicants approach performance can vary from the lecture and conference format, walks and outdoor actions, to experimental dance and theatre.

The applicants will be asked to submit a proposal for a performance to be realised at Gasworks (or off-site providing that no permission is required) between Thu 7 Aug and Sat 16 Aug 2008 within a production budget of 700, this figure including fees and production costs. Four proposals will be selected: these will receive the aforementioned production budget, as well as curatorial and technical support (i.e. a project manager guiding them and sourcing material for them; and a technician working for them for one day).

The proposals will be selected by a panel composed of:
Alessio Antoniolli, director, Gasworks
Pablo Bronstein, artist
Anna Colin, exhibitions curator, Gasworks
Vanessa Desclaux, assistant curator, Tate Modern

Rules for applicants
A written proposal for a performance (strictly no more than 300 words)
An artist's statement (strictly no more than 200 words)
A budget breakdown
A short CV
4-5 images or relevant documentation of previous work.

Note that material will not be returned, so please only send non-precious items. Also please make sure you write your name on all material.
