Call for Participants: Community-based workshop (MZD)

Call for Participants, deadline January 15

Multidisciplinary artist, facilitator, teacher, arts producer and community organizer Kevin Jesuino is seeking LGBT & BIPOC community members and emerging artists to participate in an upcoming community-based workshop and participation-based performance, Cruising at 30 Kilometers a Second and Attempting Not To Crash.

Just like in nature, there is no right or wrong for this project and all individuals and bodies (18+) are encouraged to sign up to participate!

The goal of this experimental work is to explore  how queer bodies relate to nature, create a safe space for discussion, and loose to interpret and create!

This is a workshop based project that requires two types of participants:

Participants must have a smartphone with video capturing capability. All scores are filmed outside and no longer than 30  minutes. Videos will be submitted via wetransfer.com.
  2. Live performance participants will receive a score (a series of prompts) that they will interpret live on Feb 12 – 7pm or Feb 13 – 2pm. Participants must have a laptop or smartphone. You may be asked to film inside or in your backyard at times. For no longer than 60 minutes.

All participants will receive:

  • An invitation to a virtual collaboration dinner with various multidisciplinary artists;
  • Credit for participation in the show and for any future use of its content; and
  • $50 in compensation for their participation and 30 minute performance.

Requirements:

  • 18+
  • Available to attend:
    • A virtual collaboration dinner on January 23 at 7PM MST; and
