Gesamtatelier is a newly-established platform by/for young practitioners from several creative fields who collaborate towards the conception and realization of interdisciplinary projects. The team aspires to push the boundaries of several domains, mediums and genres: performance art, contemporary dance, design, sound composition, curating, architecture and the visual arts. Gesamtatelier aims to keep an open, dynamic structure which adapts to the nature of each project: performances, exhibitions, installations, publications etc. We are now looking for a young dancer with excellent contemporary dance and improvisation skills. If you are a current student or a recent graduate interested in experimenting with other disciplines and expanding your stimuli, we kindly invite you to perform with us our inter-disciplinary piece “XYZ/s extended” at the UK Young Artists Festival 2016 in Derby.

When: Derby, UK

Deadline for applications: 2/10/2016

For a sample of our work please visit our website: http://www.gesamtatelier.com/

Our team is excited to have been selected as one of the 100 UK’s best young talents through a national call for entries from work across performance, visual arts, applied arts, music, literature, digital arts and more. It is a great opportunity for all of us to show our work, meet other artists and work on future collaborations and partnerships. Additionally, 20 artists are going to be selected to showcase their work at the International Biennale of Young Artists of Europe and the Mediterranean (BJCEM) in 2017.  http://www.ukyoungartists.co.uk/

Déda, a creative centre for dance, contemporary circus and outdoor work in Derby offered us two wonderful performance spaces for our piece. We are going to perform “XYZ/s extended” on Saturday 5th of November. It is a blend of two previous performances: “XYZ/s” and “Res-extensa” (please see respective trailers and credits), which were developed as a part of the Architectural Association Interprofessional Studio MA/MFA in Spatial Performance and Design. More details are going to be communicated during a prospective meeting. http://www.deda.uk.com/ , http://interprofessionals.net/

The UK Young Artists is providing us the venue, technical staff and support, publicity, accommodation and meals for the entire duration of the festival (3/11 until the 6/11). A series of exhibitions, artists talks, workshops, publications and performances offer a great platform for networking and promoting our work. In the past a good percentage of artists have been approached by galleries, curators and other venues gaining momentum for their career. As we are a new collective still operating under the frame of Architectural Association School of Architecture, our funds are quite limited which means that for the time being, we are not able to cover the rehearsals financially. Therefore we will try to keep the rehearsal time prior to the festival limited and condensed. We have already started a funding campaign for this event in order to cover travel costs and any other fees. Your contribution will be properly credited and we are looking forward to a constructive collaboration sharing our skills and creative networks. We will also extend the invitation for two more projects we are planning this year in London as well as future opportunities in the UK and abroad for which we are currently submitting proposals for.
How to apply:
Please send us a cv or short bio and your showreel here: gesamtatelier@gmail.com under the title: CALL FOR DANCERS/XYZ
Rehearsals will be held in London during October, on Tuesdays 10:00-14:00, Fridays 10:00-18:00 (some weekends if needed)

Deadline 2/10/2016
