Rises Zora Call for Performance Projects EXAMPLES

Call for Performance Projects for rises Zora, Deadline: April 7

For rises Zora, a multi-venue, multi-disciplinary arts project, Charlotte Street Curator-In-Residence Jamilee Polson Lacy is looking for experimental art performances—solo or collaborative—in all formats, including:

  • dance
  • musical performances
  • performance art
  • sound
  • actions or interventions

  • installations which include a time-based or performative component

Selected projects will take place at outdoor sites (to be determined by the curator and selected artists) throughout Kansas City between mid-May and mid-June 2013.

Proposed projects, whatever their format, should:

  • engage the exhibition theme in some direct or indirect way
  • be designed to be temporary—a one-time event—to be removed from the site immediately after the performance event/happening
  • be amenable to a public outdoor setting, such as a city park or community garden
