Mediteranski plesni centar / Mediterranean Dance Center Open call for residencies in 2018 - please scroll down and read before starting the application process
We invite dance artists with fresh ideas for new projects to apply for a residential stay in Mediterranean Dance Center San Vincenti situated in the heart of Istria region of Croatia. If you are an artist (or a group of artists) working within the field/s of contemporary dance, physical theatre, performance art and other cross-over artistic genres connected to dance and you dream about creating a new piece, let us know about it, apply. If you need the time to explore, be inspired by the nature and tranquility of a small Istrian renaissance city of just 180 inhabitants, we want to hear about it, apply. In 2018, from late April to the end of November, we are planning artistic residencies. Duration of a single residential stay is normally 7-10 days. If you require a longer stay, this must be argued for in the application (last question is a place where you can do that). During the residency, the chosen artists will live and work in the Center – which means you will have access to the studio 24-7. The studio measures 9 x 20 meters. There is a wooden floor (with the possibility of using black or white dance floor), ordinary working lights (no special equipment), a wardrobe, a sanitary facility, and a kitchenette). MPC will host a maximum of 5 people at the upper floor, an open-space sleeping area overlooking the studio itself. MPC will cover food costs during the stay. If offered a residency, we expect you to accept the conditions above, to cover your own travel expenses, and to make an open presentation for the audience at the end of their stay. But if you feel you wont be ready to test the work in front of audience, you can choose to teach a workshop instead. Or you can do both which is preferable. Other propositions like round tables and workshops during the stay are also very welcome. Please make an offer, state your need in the application. Deadline for applications is 23:59 at March 8th, 2018.
