Unit Motives: GRM
Die Wolke art group calls, for a third consecutive year, choreographers and dancers to its Unit Motives initiative for the creation of solo contemporary dance works on musical works by great composers. This year, the event aims to explore the different kinetic and choreographic approaches to the interpretation of works by the Groupe de Recherches Musicales, with composers such as Pierre Schaeffer, Bernard Parmegiani, Luke Ferrari, and others.
The GRM was an electroacoustic music studio founded in 1951 by the musique concrète pioneer Pierre Schaeffer in Paris. Musique concrète is a form of experimental music that is based on acousmatic listening, that is, the consideration of sounds as separate from their producing sources, described by Schaeffer in his book Traité des objets musicaux.
Applicants will be called to participate with a short solo piece of their own choreography and performance, with a duration of 5-10 minutes, under the choreographic direction of Drosia Triantaki. The results will be presented at Vitruvian Thing on March 30 and 31. Works should be adaptable to available space and their stage and lighting requirements should be simple and flexible. The individual works will be arranged and merged into a single performance that will explore contemporary and historical approaches to the work and philosophy of the composers.
The programme cannot cover travel expenses, but can provide invitation letters for the applicants to use with culture authorities, embassies, or other sponsors. Accommodation can be provided for a limited number of participants.

Cost of participation: free
Performance: Saturday, March 30 and Sunday, March 31, 20:00 and 22:00 (gen. rehearsal March 29)
