Call for Proposals

COME TOGETHER #4

Makers from all performing arts disciplines are welcome to submit their proposals.

Call for Proposals
COME TOGETHER #4
24, 25 & 26 January 2019

Nicole Beutler Projects, Keren Levi / NeverLike, BAU, Jacuzzi and Frascati are pleased to invite you to take part in the fourth edition of COME TOGETHER: a public gathering offering a podium to about 45 artists from the dance & performance field in Amsterdam. This three-day event will create time and space for artists and interested audiences to meet, exchange ideas and inspire each other. COME TOGETHER #4 will take place in all spaces of Frascati on the 24th, 25th and 26th of January 2019.

We invite you to take part in COME TOGETHER #4 with your work.
Makers from all performing arts disciplines are welcome to submit their proposals.

COME TOGETHER #4 is open to all formats of presentation. E.g. performances, lectures, actions, manifestos, films, workshops, installations, discursive formats or any other format that emerges from your practice. During these three days we offer space and time to test your ideas, ask questions, look for answers or challenge your own thinking. To share with your peers what you might otherwise not share with your audience. COME TOGETHER #4 is not a festival that focusses on full length works. As such, we invite you to propose a short performance or a project that you could not normally present in standard presentation circumstances: something unfinished, unpolished, unplugged. We encourage projects that facilitate the discourse on dance & performance or offer different perspectives on artmaking. In order to stimulate meaningful encounters, artists are requested to attend all three days of the event, also when not performing themselves.

We look forward to receiving a wide range of ideas and will do our best to facilitate your artistic wishes. There are some conditions to be considered:

Space: Your project must take place at Frascati 1, 2, 3, 4 or in another space in or around the theatre.
Duration: Please take into account that we are hosting 15 artists per night. Shorter performances (1 min to 30 min) are appreciated. Exceptions are possible, but cannot be guaranteed. We are aiming to create a programme in which events do not overlap, unless they are durational.
Rehearsal time: We can offer you time in the studio to realize your idea.
Technical production: Please be aware that we can only host proposals with minimal technical needs. There is a technical team available for some support. All technique will have to be shared with others. We will coordinate, accommodate and provide as much as possible.
Budget: We offer free production support, rehearsal time and shared meals every day. Unfortunately we cannot afford to pay any honorariums. We provide a small budget of €200 to relieve production costs.
Amsterdam: This invitation is addressed to artists who are affiliated with the Amsterdam dance & performance scene and want to connect to the community in a meaningful way.

Submit your proposal before the 25th of September to cometogether@nbprojects.nl. Please be specific as to what you need in order to realize your plan, and also let us know what you can provide yourself. Though we wish to include all proposals, we cannot give any guarantees. We will let you know if we can include your project by the 10th of October 2018. We look forward to reading your ideas. If you have any questions, please contact project coordinator Justa ter Haar at cometogether@nbprojects.nl / 06-48263327.

4: STILL LIFE at Nederlandse Dansdagen Gala

The Nederlandse Dansdagen Gala (Dutch Dance Days) on October 12th 2018 in Maastricht, is the night where the most important Dutch dance prizes will be awarded. On this festive night, dancers, choreographers and their audiences celebrate the accomplishments of Dutch dance. And there is more. In a diverse programme six leading dance companies will give a taste of the performances that they will be touring this season. Nicole Beutler Projects presents a fragment of 4: STILL LIFE that will be in theatres April 2019.

In 4: STILL LIFE Nicole Beutler goes back to basics. She immersed herself in the history of dance and distilled the essential building blocks of the dance duet between man and woman. We see mating rituals, leaders and the led, fusion and fighting, distance and intimacy. Beutler combines them all with the precise geometry of Bauhaus. Circles, squares and triangles shape a unique ‘dance of space’, a courtly dance, a mating dance, a ritual and a ‘Lichtspiel’.

‘4: STILL LIFE is nothing but contradiction. Between times and styles, expectations and reality. (...) Exceptional.’ - de Volkskrant****
