UNIT MOTIVES: CAGE

6 Nov

UnitMotives

Type of Opportunity: Open call

Deadline: January 28, 2018

Die Wolke art group calls choreographers, for a second consecutive year, to its Unit Motives initiative for the creation of solo contemporary dance works on musical works by great composers. This year, the event aims to explore the different kinetic and choreographic approaches to the interpretation of works by John Cage, as well as his compositional methods.

Where: Vitruvian Thing, Thessaloniki, Greece (vitruvianthing.com)

When: March 24-25, 2018 (possibly also on 31/3 and/or 1/4, rehearsal on 23/3)

Deadline for applications: Sunday, January 28

Cage (1912-1992) was an American composer, theorist, and writer. A pioneer in the use of indeterminacy and randomness in composition and performance, he is regarded as one of the most important representatives of post-war avant-garde.

Applicants will be called to participate with a short solo piece of their own choreography and performance, with a duration of 5-10 minutes, under the choreographic direction of Drosia Triantaki. The results will be presented at Vitruvian Thing, Thessaloniki, Greece, on March 24 and 25. Works should be adaptable to available space and their stage and lighting requirements should be simple and flexible. The individual works will be arranged and merged into a single performance that will explore contemporary and historical approaches to the work and philosophy of the composer.
