Open Call: Paradoxparadox by Protovoulia

During five days, from Mon 10 Oct through to Fri 14 Oct 2016, Rafael Abdala and Jessica Goes will develop a series of collective activities with artists based in Greater Manchester. Spending eight hours each day in a collaborative space, they will entice their creativity and go deep into experimentation and multi-authorial creative processes.

Paradoxparadox is a process-based project, with no interest in “what” or “why”. The workshop activities will focus on “how” we get into the creative process. Starting with provocative exercises and with the aid of ‘trigger materials’, the participants will dive into the void of experimentation, with no fixed ideas or final outcome in mind. The idea of experimentation – without knowing and without a need to extract meanings from the experience – leads us to a paradoxical way of creating and collaborating: Deep into nothingness, in full embodiment, living the experience, collectively.

HOME and Protovoulia are inviting creative people to apply for the Open Call. Applicants must be able to commit to being part of a collaborative workshop for five-days, from Mon 10 Oct through to Fri 14 Oct 2016, for eight-hours daily. We are looking for creative practitioners working in any discipline – writers, actors/actresses, visual artists, film makers, performers, dancers, singers etc.

Each participant will receive a bursary of £250.
