Open to: interdisciplinary artistic teams working in theatre, dance, site-specific arts, music, digital arts and circus or various hybrid forms
Grant: €5,000 per artistic team, accommodation, workspace 

Description

Launched by L-EST/European Performing Arts and Transmedia Lab Pilot Scheme in 2013, the call for artistic research grants enabled three European artistic teams to explore and experiment with various forms of contemporary performing arts and transmedia writing.

Currently the three partners are announcing the 2014-2015 grants which are intended for interdisciplinary artistic teams (actors, writers, choreographers, developers, researchers, etc.) working in theatre, dance, site-specific arts, music, digital arts and circus or various hybrid forms. The artistic research process will take the form of an experimentation phase or a writing and conceptualisation phase granted to several companies. This phase will take place between March and June 2015, at the end of which the artistic teams will have either produced an initial model/project, or have advanced in the production of a project that was already underway.

Various approaches can be developed: stage/media combinations (web, interactive interfaces, parallel fictions, narrative world(s), etc.); temporal, narrative, formal/conceptual and/or media extensions; audience involvement (co-actor, co-creator, participant, etc.) and spillover into the public space; interpenetration of real and/or virtual and the stage, and so on.

Eligibility

In order to be eligible you must be a company, a collective or an artist working in theatre, dance, site-specific arts, music, digital arts and circus or various hybrid forms. The research must take place in one of the following places:

A minimum grant of €5,000 per artistic team will be awarded; this sum may be reviewed, project by project, based on the number of people involved and the length of requested research residence. This sum will cover travel, per-diems and salaries.
