a project by Centrale Fies

curated by
Barbara Boninsegna (artistic director and founder of Centrale Fies)
Simone Frangi (researcher, writer and curator)

Mentoring 2020 Krystel Khoury (researcher, anthropologist and cultural manager)


The open call LIVE WORKS includes a creative residency period, for nine selected projects. LIVE WORKS sees performance as a work space, and as an instrument and cultural exercise.
Starting from the notion of performance in the visual art practice, the project is unique in its particular attention to hybrid research, underlining the openness and fluidity of performance, its social and politica implications and its level of public understandability. The announcement is open to a wide range of performative actions, also including sound and new media arts, text-based performances, lecture performances, multimedia storytelling, choreographic practices, relational and workshop-based projects, and
other projects questioning the idea of performativity beyond the body.
Artists and professionals from any geographic location and with no limits on age can enter the announcement, as individuals or in groups, with a single project. The open call only accepts unpublished or long-term projects that need to be developed and/or concluded, for which participation would represent an evolution of the project or it's final chapter.

The nine projects, selected by LIVE WORKS, will be invited to participate in a production residency at Centrale Fies from the 6th to the 27th July 2020.

For each selected project will be awarded a budget of € 1.500,00: € 1.000,00 of this budget will be used for the production of the performance, € 500,00 will be assigned as a fee for the artistic work. Centrale Fies covers the travel costs to reach Centrale Fies (maximum of € 500,00 per project) and will provide accommodation and food services for the whole residency period.

The production of the performance projects during the residency will be supported by diverse types of curatorship, from theoretical to technical development, a Free School of Performance with Studio visit, critical session and reading group.
During the residency phase, Centrale Fies will provide a production and curatorial staff to assist the artists as they develop the selected projects. The residency phase is an essential part of the development of th selected projects and it's consider as mandatory.
The performances produced will be presented during the 40th edition of the Drodesera Festival of Performing Arts (24th, 25th, 26th July 2020). During each evening a program of established guest artists 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. 8 the guest board of professionals is composed by:

Cédric Fauq (Curator, Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham, England);
Inga Lāce (Curator, Latvian Center Contemporary Art, Riga, Latvia);
Mathilde Villeneuve (Artistic Leader, Kunstencentrum BUDA, Kortrijk, Belgium);
Daniel Blanga Gubbay (Artistic Co-director, Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Bruxelles, Belgium);
Vincent van Velsen (Co-curator, Sonsbeek 2020/2024, Arnhem, Netherlands)
