Enough of Minimal Conditions: The world is not a global hospital
The Institute for Disaster and Chaos (a group of female artists in the field of performance and performance studies) will, as a part of A Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful Disaster, organize a workshop for 15–20 local female artists who will, with their contributions in the form of musical, visual, verbal, i.e. personal, expressions, together with the artists from the above-mentioned institute, develop content and further deepen the research of the participating artists.
The workshop will take place on Monday and Tuesday, October 7th and 8th, between 11 am and 5 pm (with an hour lunch break) at Dance Theatre Ljubljana (Prijateljeva 2, Ljubljana).
participants willing to take part in the final DDDK
performance (October 9th at 8 pm) should reserve their
time for rehearsals, a dress rehearsal and performance on
Wednesday, October 9th!
The workshop will address the following questions: Why actually agree to the constant political mode of survival and a continuous catastrophe? Where in such a social and private situation has the possibility of realising full creative potentials disappeared to? What is actually happening to us under the dictates of permanent catastrophe? To what extent do such states reduce us to just the elementary needs?
The workshop is held by Selma Banich, Deana Gobac, Nataa Govedić, Roberta Milevoj and Iva Nerina Sibila, the members of the Zagreb-based Institute for Catastrophe and Chaos.
We kindly invite all female artists (theatre, performance, music, visual arts, literature) as well as other women interested in the workshops topic. The conditions for applying for the workshop are the ability to communicate in English and participation on both days of the workshop (October 7th and 8th). The willingness to take part in the final DDDK performance (October 9th) is desired but not a prerequisite for participating in the workshop.
Applications can be submitted up to October 4, 2013 at the latest. Please send us a brief letter of intent, a short CV, and contact info (email and phone number) at: firstname.lastname@example.org
