SQUEEZE IT Contest: theatre, visual art, new media
From the organisers:
The Trieste Contemporanea Committee is pleased to announce the third edition of the SQUEEZE IT contest challenging the talent of artists and young professionals from the European Union and the CEI countries that are under the age of 30 and intend to work at the crossroads of three languages: Theatre, the Visual Arts and the Information Technologies.
The competition deadline is 12th November 2018. The entry is free.
The contestants are asked to conceive an original and unpublished theatrical action, low budget and small format, organically connected to the languages and issues of contemporary visual arts. The candidate action has to maintain as its founding elements the stage environment and performing talent, include dramaturgy and give specific attention to the artistic potential of recent information technologies.
In keeping with the logic of the contest, the applying theatrical action must be able to fit in an ideal 4mx4mx4m size box and should last no longer than 16 minutes.
After a semi-finalist have been awarded by the online vote and finalists have participated in a special workshop and staged their theatrical action, the winner of the Franco Jesurun Award will work with the 2018 guest director Mirosław Bałka at a video production.
