Jelentkezési határidő: 2011. december 18.
A Conflux 5 olyan művészt keres, akik mostanában kezdtek el dolgozni, és akik határozott koncepcióval rendelkeznek meghitt színházi darabok készítésére. A "meghitt színház" kifejezés alatt olyan kis léptékű, bel- vagy szabadtéri performanszt / installációt értenek, amely nem több, mint négy fős hallgatóságnak mutatható be egy időben. Az ilyen darabokból álló programot bemutatják a "Surge 2012" fesztiválon Skóciban, de a program esetleg be lesz mutatva más fesztiválokon is Angliában, Olaszországban és Magyarországon is.

Angol nyelvű pályázati felhívás
Conflux is seeking 5 artists who have recently started producing their own work, and who also have strong concepts for creating pieces of intimate theatre. By ‘intimate theatre’ we mean small-scale, indoor or outdoor performances / installations to be experienced by no more than 4 audience members at a time. A programme of such pieces will be presented at ‘Surge 2012’ – Scotland’s only festival of physical performance.
Conflux will introduce successful applicants to internationally respected artists who will collaborate with them to realise their specific concept. This process is designed to help undiscovered artists develop their working practice with the help of established artists, and in the company of other undiscovered artists from across Europe.
The finished performances may also have the potential to be performed at festivals in England, Italy and Hungary.
Conflux is an LTUK (Legacy Trust United Kingdom) and Creative Scotland funded organisation designed to develop and promote physical theatre, street arts and circus throughout Scotland. As such Conflux works with many artists and companies throughout Europe, and the rest of the World, to create innovative training and performance programmes.
