2014 Festival: Artist Callout

APPLICATIONS CLOSE MIDNIGHT 7 APRIL 2014

We are seeking contemporary performance works that are unique, span artistic practices, engage with audiences and the wider artistic community.

Crack is part of This is Not Art (TiNA) – a yearly experimental and emerging arts festival held in Newcastle which incorporates Critical Animals, National Young Writers’ Festival, and Electrofringe.mayfly floor

Free to attend, Crack provides a safe space for artists to test new material in development, tour existing work, engage with the wider arts community, and provide opportunities for professional development.

Crack occupies abandoned spaces, seeking to reactivate and revitalise forgotten parts of Newcastle. In the spirit of taking risks, we’d like to see work that has an interest in activating these private spaces and we ask our artists and audiences to step out of a traditional theatre setting.

SETTING THE STAGES INITIATIVE (NEW IN 2014)
This year Crack, thanks to the support of the Australia Council, is able to offer financial support to one project from each state and territory across Australia. Crack will support the journey of these projects to the festival by covering transport and accommodation costs, as well as offering an artist fee for the presentation of their work at the festival. Applications that can demonstrate that they are an independent artist or group of artists presenting a new contemporary performance work will be considered for this additional support.

CRITERIA: THE NITTY GRITTY
Applications will be assessed on the following criteria:
*The project is grounded in contemporary performance and seeks to innovate in form or content
*The applicants can demonstrate an understanding of how they will deliver the project they are pitching
*The project is suited to the Crack Theatre Festival and has an understanding of the context in which they are presenting.

To be eligible for Setting the Stages:
*Must be a new contemporary performance work (can be part of an existing tour, just not a remount)
*Applicants must be an independent artist or group of artists.
