CALL OUT FOR CREATIVE WRITERS/LINGUISTS TO TAKE PART IN A COLLABORATIVE PROJECT
I am a London based dance artist and movement educator with an extensive experience in performing in various settings ranging from theatre to movies and arts exhibitions. In the last few years I have deepened my interest in somatic practices and since 2015 I have been studying on the Certification programme in Laban Bartenieff Movement Studies (LBMS).
For my final Certification Project entitled ‘Embodying and Re-Patterning Translation Choices Through the Performative Process’, I am looking for a creative writer/linguist to collaborate with.
The writer/linguist will be required to creatively collaborate in the initial and final stages of the project over a period of three months. After being selected, the successful candidate will be asked to write a poem or short piece on the theme ‘Change and Progression’. This will be added to the LIMS’ archive for training purposes only; any public use would be discussed and agreed upon with the writer. The second part of the project will actively involve the writer in a movement and creative writing workshop.
The successful candidate must/will:
-have extensive experience in writing (poems, short stories, life writing, etc.) and knowledge of the principles of translation
-have a keen interest in multiculturalism and/or foreign languages
-be willing to experiment with new forms of writing and inter-disciplinarity
-be curious about performing arts and/or any contemporary art form
-be available to undertake a 3 hour movement workshop possibly in mid November (Date TBC)
-be available for an initial 30 to 40 mins Skype conversation for details on the collaboration (by the 10th of October)
Please register your interest by filling in the form on the following link https://paola168.typeform.com/to/VXu7Np
Deadline for applications: 6pm on 5th October
This is an unpaid opportunity, although travel expenses within Greater London will be covered to attend the workshop.
Please note that all unsuccessful applicants will receive a voucher to attend free further sessions on language and movement later next year.
