Performance Practices

ARTSADMIN WEEKENDERS 2010

Six intensive weekend workshops led by artists renowned for their approaches to making, facilitation and participation.

Artsadmin’s Weekenders are open to all practitioners regardless of level of experience; all that is required is an openness to meet, talk, play, perform and collaborate. The second series of Weekenders starts in September 2010 and runs through to April 2011. Come to one or all – each Weekender operates as a stand-alone while the series as a whole offers an opportunity to work with an outstanding range of artists.

The next series of Weekenders will be led by Station House Opera (Julian Maynard Smith), Simon Vincenzi, Kira O’Reilly, Oreet Ashery, João Fiadeiro and Karen Christopher.

Curated by the Artists’ Advisor at Artsadmin, the series reflects a wide range of performance practices. The content of each Weekender will be unique to the lead artist, reflective of their practice and responsive to the group of participants.

CALL FOR ARTISTS
Performance Market | 21-24 January 2010

Call for artists from all disciplines interested in developing performance elements in their work

Artists (including students) from Devon and Cornwall are invited to make a proposal for Performance Market. Internationally acclaimed performance artist Marina Abramović will select seven artists to develop a site-specific durational performance work around Plymouth City Market. The aim of Performance Market is to support emerging performance practices and selected artists who will have the opportunity to take part in workshops and surgeries to develop their idea. 

Presented by Plymouth Arts Centre and the Marina Abramović Institute for Preservation of Performance Art in collaboration with the Live Art Development Agency. Performance Market is part of the symposium and exhibition The Pigs of Today are the Hams of Tomorrow, presenting new live durational performance works at The Slaughterhouse, Royal William Yard in Plymouth.

Deadline for applications by email: 5pm Monday 23 November 2009.
