Call for Submissions RIPA 2016

Deadline : January 5 at 11:59 pm

The Rencontre Interuniversitaire de Performance Actuelle (RIPA) is inviting university-level student artists (current or recently graduated), from Quebec and neighbouring provinces and states, to submit a proposal for its next performance evening which is to be held in April 2016 in Montreal.

RIPA is looking for performance proposals that are likely to incorporate new media (or not) and their variations : action art, intervention, art furtif, reenactment, maneuver, etc. Offsite proposals presenting themselves as an extension of the event are also welcome.

Performances that will be presented during the evening may be a maximum of 15 minutes, though exceptions will be considered.

* A symbolic sum will be given to the selected artists. RIPA is not able to cover the expenses of the participating artists (materials, travel and accommodation). A modest compensation as well as support in finding accommodations are offered to artists from outside the Montreal area.

Your application must include in ONE PDF FILE (maximum 10 MB) the followings:

– A resume (maximum 2 pages)
– A short text presenting your artistic statement (maximum 250 words)
– A description of your project (maximum 350 words)
