HaRaKa for Dance Development and Research in Collaboration with Officina- Marseille, El Teatro- Tunis, L'Animal A L'Esquena- Barcelona, Indisciplinarte- Terni
Invites artists from various disciplines to submit a single proposal for its joint project Miniatures Officinae.
Miniatures is a joint project between 5 Mediterranean partners, and is funded by the European Union's Grant
The project brings forth the concept of Miniature as a historical form popular in the region (Persian Manuscripts, Ottoman Manuscripts, Book of Hours,…etc) and raises the question of the possibility of how can a miniature be created in a contemporary setting.
The guiding theme for the project is relatedness to the other in a specifically emotive relationality: how do we relate to the other? What defines such relation? What constitutes desire? How can "love" be a central strategy for such configuration?
Are among the many questions the project seeks to raise.
The project is open to submissions from artists or artistic groups from across the disciplines (dance, performing arts, visual arts,….etc)
Selected projects will be co-produced by HaRaKa in Egypt and in another partner organisation with the network of this project. The project will be premiered at the Miniatures Presentations in April 2011, within the framework of an international event bringing together aritsts, theorists and researchers from different countries to meet and present their work in Egypt
Deadline for submission of tentative proposals is 25th of May 2010
A meeting with the shortlisted applicants to discuss their initial idea will be taking place the week after that, and the selection of the final projects will be annouced later in June 2010
