Open call deadline: 1ST APRIL 2019

Live Works includes a creative residency period, for nine selected projects, and it is unique in its particular attention to hybrid research, underlining the openness and fluidity of performance, its social and political implications and its level of public understandability.

The nine projects selected by LIVE WORKS will be invited to participate in a production residency at Centrale Fies (Dro, Italy) from the 6th to the 16th July 2019 and will be awarded a budget of € 1.500,00 each.

The production of the performance projects during the residency will be supported by diverse types of curatorship, from theoretical to technical development. LIVE WORKS provides a theoretical program: the Free School of Performance, that includes studio visits, critical sessions, reading groups.

The performances produced will be presented during the 39th edition of the Drodesera Festival of Performing Arts (19th, 20th, 21st July 2019).
During each evening a program of established guest performers will be presented alongside the projects of the 9 finalists.
On this occasion, the nine winning projects will be seen and discussed by a board of international professionals, working for festivals, institutions, residencies and production programs that sustain and produce research in performance. The board will be actively involved in public and private meetings with the nine artists.

For Live Works vol.7 the guest board is composed by:
