The Work Room UNFIX call out

Arts Practice | Deadline: 08.02.2019

Please see call out from UNFIX

 Dear members,

We’re delighted to be partnering with The Work Room for the next edition of UNFIX Festival (29th-31st March 2019 at CCA Glasgow). UNFIX is a multi-arts festival focussed on ecological crisis, climate change, capitalist inequalities and the shifts we need to make as a species to adapt to the challenges of the 21st century and the Anthropocene. You can read more about the project here.

We’re looking for proposals from members to form part of a collective response to these issues from The Work Room. We have a modest budget and will make the Creative Lab in the CCA available for two hours during the festival for a TWR session.

We don’t want to impose too many rules and would rather make space for the members’ own ideas. Possibilities might be practice sharing, scratch performances, participatory performances / workshops, improvisation, or anything else you would like to contribute within the technical and budgetary limits. There will be a dance floor and PA system.

If you already make work around relevant issues this is very welcome, but we are equally interested in members who are inspired by the framing of UNFIX to try something new. If you’re looking for inspiration, you could perhaps start from the notion that dancers are uniquely well placed to communicate the ecological reality of the human body, or the proposition we often make at UNFIX that ‘climate change and ecological crisis are happening inside your body, Right Now.’

Once we have an idea of members’ interests we can collectively look at how to facilitate the session at the Creative Lab during the festival.

To apply, please send a note of interest of around 500 words or less to with the basic idea you’d like to explore, with as much practical detail as you can, any access requirements and anything else that will help pain the picture for us. If it’s for existing work you can send documentation links, but this isn’t necessary if you’re proposing a new idea.

The deadline for proposals is Friday 8th February.

Thanks for reading.
