Open call: SE.S.TA Centre for choreographic development - Interdisciplinary incubator 2018


From the organisers:

How often do you have the possibility to dedicate your time to research only and enrich other approaches without pressure for results? Interdisciplinary incubator was created for this purpose. It provides artists with the time and space for joint research with one goal only – to spend time by sharing question and answers, confronting other ways of thinking and searching for new ways of their work’s development. The topic of this year is CIRCULATION.

The term “circulation” means repetitive movement, stream, and is present in many artistic as well as scientific fields. Every field perceives and approaches circulation in its specific way. In the residence we are going to confront these approaches and search for contact points, parallels, possibilities of transmission and mutual inspiration.

The residence permits the participants to enter the beautiful premises of the chateau Žďár nad Sázavou. The complex and its close surroundings represent a unique landscape and planning unit with extraordinary genius loci, which will provide ideal space for reflection and dialogue and as such also represents using of circulation. The programme of the residence includes moderated discussions with experts from subject specific fields, joint research as well as individual free search for inspiration in interiors as well as exteriors of the chateau and wonderful nature surrounding it.

The result of the residence can differ from participant to participant, a choreographer may find a new creative theme, physicist may find a new way of applying his or her research, an architect may find other inspirational sources when working with space...
We are looking into different fields that each give a name to the same phenomenon, they use the same term and they ask similar questions, but they provide different answers. Because of the high expertise of the fields we sometimes forget that they enrich one another and are interconnected.

Selected artists will be provided with:

/ residential spaces including accommodation and meals

/ contribution to travel expenses up to 80 €/ person for foreign participants

/ at the end of the residence an opportunity of public presentation – moderated round table
