Call for experimental artists working in movement & performance

Independent, full-day, outdoor event in Seattle curated by A. K. "Mimi" Allin and Danae' Clark. Studies in White takes place over the course of 12 hours starting at 9AM on Saturday 16 January 2010 at Counterbalance Park in Lower Queen Anne. Individual artists will present studies lasting from 30 minutes to several hours.

Take a virtual tour of the park.

Studies in White is not an endeavor in finished, choreographed pieces. It is a preparation for something. Artists should not spend vast amounts of time preparing, but should envision and set into place parameters for a study and plan to partake in that study, publicly. Artists are encouraged to review the Wikipedia definition of study (art) and to visit the park (Roy St & Queen Anne Ave) and to consider weather and temperature variables when proposing a study. This is a rain or shine event. Portions of the park are covered in gravel, wood and concrete. Performances will be video-documented for a full-length DVD--Studies in White. Video will become part of a Color Study archive.

Organizers seek artists experimenting with movement and performance. Visual and audio aspects encouraged. Other genres considered. No plug-ins available. Self-supporting, low-tech only. While situated in an urban area, Counterbalance Park is not very well frequented and, it being winter, a standing audience is unlikely. The park does, however, sit across from a warm and busy café and is one block from On the Boards, so there will be ample visibility. Interested individuals send an informal e-mail expressing interest to no later than 4 JANUARY 2009. Include your (1) name, (2) contact information (3) link to website and (3) a very brief (<300 words) work history, including current project(s).

Call for individuals with flashlights (any size) to be part of a FLASHLIGHT CHORUS at 8PM on 16 January 2010. Flashlight Chorus is the final study for "Studies in White" which takes place at Counterbalance Park in Lower Queen Anne. Bring a flashlight and prepare to join the chorus!!! A conductor will be on hand to direct you. This is a rain or shine event. Flashlight Chorus will retire to Cafe Ladro across the street after the show to chat and warm up. Need more info? Contact
