The CURRENT SESSIONS seeks proposals from choreographers, collaborative groups and filmmakers working within contemporary performance for the Volume VI, Issue I. series from March 11 to 13, 2016 to be held at the wild project in the East Village in NYC.
Now in its 6th year, the CURRENT SESSIONS has built a reputation as an organization that offers unique and memorable experiences for dancemakers, their collaborators, and spectators alike. SESSION after SESSION, passionate artists come together from NYC, the US and abroad to develop new relationships; a 3-day festival of curated performances, movement workshops and an open forum/discussion allow accepted artists to exchange in both conversation and craft.
Recent presented artists include: Niall Jones, Yara Travieso, LoudHoundMovement, Ellen Furey and Jeff Docimo // Isodoc Dance, among others.
> CURATORIAL FOCUS
The CURRENT SESSIONS is interested in seeing works that:
- combine dance with media / technology
- engage the audience through participation / unconventional use of space
- have a dance theatre / performance art influence
- are created in collaboration with a sound designer / feature live sound
- is site-specific / durational / an installation in lobby of venue
Artists are encouraged to submit work based on the stated Curatorial Focus, however, it is not necessary that proposed works fit into any of these categories.
