La Caldera Les Corts is opening the call for its programme of residencies for the period January to December 2019.
This year we added a new modality to the call. Apart from the usual modalities of creation residence and technique residence, we add a specific modality for emerging artists in collaboration with El Graner.
This year, it is planned to host a total of 15 projects: 12 creation residences, 2 technical residences and 1 residence for an emerging artist or collective.
Aimed at creators, collectives and researchers from different artistic disciplines working in the performing arts, where the body and/or movement is a central material, tool or question in their project. Their origin may be local, national or international.
The main resource we can offer is the use of our studios space. La Caldera Les Corts offers three different sized studios whose layout, equipment and possibilities determine the type of work that they are most suitable for. We advise you to visit the following links so you can match your proposal to their characteristics:
Selection of projects
Obviously the main criterion is the intrinsic quality of the artistic proposal and its interest within the context of contemporary creation. We have also set out further criteria, purely for guidance, that coincide with the mission or lines of work currently developed by La Caldera.
>Clarity in the expounding of the proposal and in the planning and coherence of the project.
>New visions and ways of approaching creation, open to risk and experimentation, using languages, methodologies and formats.
>Links to other artistic disciplines, fields of knowledge.
>The capacity to generate a context for reflection and critical thought around the proposal.
>We are especially interested in catering to and supporting youth creation
>An interest in building a dialogue with the centre in order to define the most suitable mechanisms for collecting and / or sharing the knowledge emerging from the practices and processes
>Projects those are capable of developing actions for social mediation and participation without entering into conflict with artistic interests.
The selection committee will be formed by performing arts professionals from different artistic disciplines and profiles, some with links to La Caldera and others from outside. Once the selection process is over, the composition of the committee will be made public.
This call is aimed at individuals and legal entities. In order to participate, you must fill in the form, specifying which modality you have chosen and making sure you attach all required documentation in each case.
