Call for Alberta Artist Applications
The Fluid Festival is accepting applications from Alberta artists for the upcoming festival. Fluid Festival dates will take place October 9-21, 2012. Alberta artist programming includes Spark, the Physical Therapy Cabaret, containR, and Shared Bill Programming. Artist fees are provided for all Fluid Festival events. Please look at the Springboard Performance website for more details on Fluid Festival programming.
- Spark features emerging artists. It brings artists from mixed disciplines together for 2-week creative blind dates including mentorship, creation and performance opportunities.
- Physical Therapy Cabaret features creative movers and shakers from all disciplines interested in creating work for an impossibly small stage within a bar context.
- Alberta Showcase (will be presented in 2013 – no showcase for 2012) features mid-career and established Alberta dance artists performing 10-15 minute works for invited guests, presenters and general audiences.
- Shared Bill Programming features 30-40 minute length works presented on a mixed bill.
- containR seeks site specific artistic projects to be created and performed in and around containR, a portable theatre made of shipping containers which celebrates Calgary 2012, interconnected histories and experiences, and the Calgary community.
