Live Art Bistro | Commission
IDEA is an open call competition for contemporary performance makers in need of support to realise their next project!
Deadline for Submissions:
Friday 10th August
LAB are on the hunt for a new work that sits outside of the conventional theatre/gallery space. If you’re the kind of person that is willing to take risks, provoke change and challenge audiences then this is the place for you! Keeping in the spirit of Live Art, LAB are looking for performances that are difficult to label but impossible to ignore. They will accept all art forms & disciplines, as long as the idea is original and defies expectation.
If chosen, applicants will be required to prepare a 10-15 minute presentation/performance to be showcased on Saturday 25 August at LAB Leeds. IDEA ASSEMBLY will invite a panel of judges from different disciplines to make the call on who receives the commission. There will also be a wild card vote cast by the audience. The winning applicant will be announced the same evening and will immediately receive the commission of:
• £500 to make the work (including all expenses)
• 2 weeks residency at LAB (3rd-15th September)
• Free technical support
• Free accommodation
Note: The final performance will be shown on the 15th September exactly three weeks after the IDEA ASSEMBLY.
