Open Call for 5 co-commissions for CHASM a programme of Live artworks and performances searching for intimacy in a time of social isolation.
This is an opportunity for Live Artists across the UK to engage in a programme of remote performances co-commissioned by CLAY and East Street Arts.
They are offering commissions to five artists to develop new work for remote audiences of up to 6 people or the total of a household. This includes artist fees, production budget, test audiences, and a bespoke framework for a remote residency. The programme will be performed over two months in September and October 2020.
Artists are encouraged to:
Play with technologies to create a new space for performances rather than replace the live performances we are used to
Create needed entertainment for audiences to not only raise awareness about artists precarious positions, but let audiences connect with the creators of their daily entertainment and lives
Create a time and space for both the artist and audience to feel safe and connected to give an escape from the current reality.
