TaPRA Practice-as-Research Exhibition 2015
Worcester University, 8–10 September 2015
Edit: 14 July 2015 – deadline extended until 16 July.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
As part of the Theatre & Performance Research Association (TaPRA) 2015 conference, we invite proposals to exhibit visual work in the TaPRA Practice-as-Research Exhibition at the University of Worcester (8–10 September 2015). The inclusion of a curated exhibition to coincide with the annual TaPRA conference follows the success of last years Practice Gallery, curated by Nik Wakefield, for the TaPRA 2014 Conference at Royal Holloway.
This year the Practice-as-Research Exhibition, curated by Rebecca Gamble, explores research inquiry through practice (Frayling 1993). The exhibition will examine the intimate relationship between theory and practice and reveal different practice-as-research methodologies through visual examples of work.
We welcome diverse proposals that offer insight to practice-as-research; this could include printed scripts and choreographic scores, photographic and video documentation, performance objects and traces/remnants of live work.
Please send a short description of work to be exhibited (up to 300 words), 3-5 Jpeg images, and any relevant links to work online, along with your technical requirements and a short biography (100 words) by 9am on 13 July to exhibition curator Rebecca Gamble: firstname.lastname@example.org
Once selected, exhibitors must register as delegates for the 2015 TaPRA conference, which automatically includes TaPRA membership. The deadline for early bird registration is Friday 17 July, and final registration is Friday 14 August.
