Deadline for applications: Wednesday 8 March
Staging Posts is a new glór initiative to support artists in creating new work – whilst providing insight for audiences into the development process and the choices that artists make. The event will be ‘scratch’ in style, with a selection of artists across art-forms sharing brief excerpts from their work-in-progress, with opportunities for audience responses and feedback. Three to four artists will present short excerpts of their work – followed by brief moderated discussions with the audience about what they have seen. So if you are an arts lover with a curiosity for the new, then join us on this fascinating journey!
Information for Artists who would like to present:
Are you a professional artist developing a new performance and are keen to air it in front of an audience to test how it lands?
Staging Posts is an opportunity for artists practicing in any performance genre to spend some brief time at glór testing an excerpt from your new work. Three or four artists/companies will be selected to present a short 10/15 minute excerpt that you have been developing, and to place it carefully in front of the audience, to tease out their responses to it, and help you test the genesis of your ideas. The intention of this initiative is to provide a platform and sharing point for innovative work within it’s development, in a manner that is supportive, constructive and progressive.
The selected artists will have the opportunity to spend a technical session in glór with our technicians testing and rehearsing the work in advance, and will also have the opportunity to have a pre-arranged phone/skype chat with the Staging Posts dramaturg/host to focus their objectives and questions for the Staging posts platform. After the evening the artist/company will also have an opportunity to have a debrief by phone/skype with the dramaturg/host to reflect on their learnings from the initiative.
Guiding principles for selecting work for Staging Posts:
• The work must be new and in development (not yet launched or premiered)
• Selection will be based on innovation, quality and potential excellence
• Application are welcomed from both emerging and established professional artists
Staging Posts presentations will take place at glór on Tuesday 21 March, 7.30pm
