Experiment A – open call for scientists & choreographers. An opportunity for open-themed, transdisciplinary collaboration between one scientist & one choreographer over a two -month period.

Where: Flux Laboratory Athens, Athens, Greece

When: 15 September 2022 – 15 November 2022

Deadline for applications: 1st of July 2022

Flux Laboratory Athens launches a new residency program aimed at choreographers and scientists-researchers with an interest in exploring the creative collaboration between artistic practice & scientific research. The theme is open and the primary aim is to synthesize a unique blend of research interests and people that leaves room for exchange, dialogue, inspiration and co-creation developing at the fringes of the respective disciplines.

One choreographer and one scientist will be selected for the period September 15th to November 15th in order to collaborate intensely over a condensed time frame, seeking – through their personal methodologies and interests – a common ground in order to transform their joint research into a choreographic outcome. The mission of Flux Laboratory Athens is to function as a unique “incubator” of collaborations that will gradually evolve outside its walls, providing experimentation time and resources.

The residency process will be followed and recorded by transdisciplinary researcher, curator and program engagement specialist for the international organization Leonardo/ISAST, Christiana Kazakou, who will act as a mentor, external observer and link between disciplines.
